Zara joins angora-free fashion movement

Christmas in August

From now on, clothes by the Zara brand are angora-free.After M&S, Topshop, Primark, H&M and Forever 21, the Inditex group, which owns Zara, Massimo Dutti and Bershka among other brands, has confirmed that angora fur will no longer feature in its clothing ranges. Animal rights activist group PETA applauded the move by the largest clothing retailer in the world: “When it comes to animal welfare policies, many of their competitors look to them and try to follow in their footsteps,” commented the group’s president Ingrid Newkirk. In 2013, PETA Asia released shocking undercover video footage showing workers violently ripping the fur out of angora rabbits’ writhing bodies.
