It was recently brought to the worlds attention the disgusting lengths taken to get our angora sweaters, gloves, hats and scarfs, as rabbits are frequently tortured for fashion and profit. Secret filming by PETA captures the ‘plucking’ of Angora rabbits long soft fur by workers in China has outraged many including the retailer H&M ceasing all of its Angora products but now continues the battle to cease production in every other store, many are falling into line including Zara, Topshop and Asos but theres still a long road ahead. Over ninety percent of angora fur comes from China with the simple reason; profit, China has no penalties for animal abuse on farms and no standard treatment of the animals combined with the high trade value of £22 per kilogram has caused the high demand. By plucking the hair it can double in price to shearing whilst reducing the time from weeks of gentle removal to violent minutes which are endured every three months after which were clearly seen to be lying motionless in shock.
