LA CORUNA – Inditex, the world's largest clothing retailer is to ban angora wool products permanently — and is to send 20,000 brand-new angora sweaters, coats, and other garments with a value of almost US $900,000 to Syrian refugees in Lebanon. The move from Inditex, the parent company to Zara and Massimo Dutti, follows talks with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), which has achieved some notable results on the angora issue. Late last year several high street clothing retailers including H&M, Esprit, ASOS and Topshop halted their production of garments containing angora in response to a video from Peta, which revealed the inhumane treatment of rabbits at angora farms in China. PETA visited ten angora farms in China and released footage showing fur being ripped out of live rabbits to ensure the angora fibres were long and thick.
