NASHVILLE - Footwear and accessories company Genesco, which owns the Schuh retail chain, has banned the use of alpaca wool following an expose by animal rights group PETA.

The PETA investigation into the world’s largest privately owned alpaca farm, Mallkini in Peru, claimed to produce evidence that workers mistreated the animals while sheering them for wool.

Genesco previously banned angora and mohair after previous PETA exposés. The company now joins brands including Marks and Spencer, Next, New Look, Matalan, Uniqlo, Ted Baker, Esprit and Valentino, in banning alpaca.
