After a lengthy dispute PETA has scored a major win with it’s ban against the use of angora wool. The animal rights group revealed late Thursday that Nasty Gal will be dropping items made with rabbit fur.
Nasty Gal now joins more than 120 manufacturers such as H&M, TopShop, Asos, Urban Outfitters and Forever21 in banning the use of angora wool on their products. After PETA recently carried out investigations of the angora wool business, they found harsh and inhumane conditions of which the rabbits inhabited.
PETA is happy with the outcome and Nasty Gal is not the only retailer that wants to join PETA’s list of angora-free brands. Nasty Gal does have a variety of cruelty free products from shoes to jackets and the fact that they are willing to help in the movement of cruelty free products.
Per Tracy Reiman, executive vice president of PETA, “The future of fashion is kind, not cruel” and Nasty Gal is contributing to the movement.
