Benetton Shows Its True Colours, Fails to Ban Angora
There is simply no humane way to produce angora. Rabbits on angora farms are kept in tiny, barren cages for their entire lives. Their fur is painfully torn from their skin or they are tied to boards and roughly sheared every few months, which is a terrifying experience for these timid animals.
Almost every store on the high street, from H&M to French Connection, has committed to keeping angora out of future collections after the cruelty of angora production came to light.
But global brand Benetton has so far failed to commit to banning this unethical product and won’t give customers a straight answer about its angora policy.
