H&M temporarily stops production of all angora products

Dec '13
Swedish fashion giant H&M has stopped the production of all angora products until the company secures that its strict Product Policy is being followed.
 
“H&M will immediately stop the production of all angora products until we have secured that our strict Product Policy is being followed,” the company said in a statement on its website.
 
“H&M doesn’t accept that animals are treated badly, which is checked when audits are made,” the statement said.
 
The retailer explained that they only allow products made of angora rabbit hair from farms with good animal husbandry.
 
“Plucking is not acceptable in accordance with our product policy,” the company said and added that it would now accelerate further inspections of its sub-suppliers to ensure compliance with its product policy.
 
However, concerned customers can return an angora product bought at H&M and get a full refund, according to the statement.
 
Esprit, the international fashion brand for clothing and lifestyle products, and Scandinavian label Acne have also stopped sourcing angora wool after an animal rights group released a video showing fur being plucked from live rabbits on Chinese farms.
