They were the screams heard ’round the world. When PETA Asia released its shocking undercover video footage showing how workers violently rip the fur out of angora rabbits’ writhing bodies, customers shared the video widely, vowed never to wear angora again, and contacted stores and designers in droves demanding that they stop buying the product. The retailers listened, and the list of stores that are making their customers and rabbits happy this Christmas is a long one.

More than a dozen companies have completely banned angora, including:
- Limited Brands (including Victoria’s Secret)
- Marc O’Polo
- Marks & Spencer
- PVH Corp. (including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, etc.)
- Ted Baker
Thank you to everyone who has been sharing the video, contacting retailers, and helping us win this historic victory for rabbits. Please help keep the campaign going full steam ahead by asking Gap Inc. to ban angora as well.
