JUST IN: French Connection has announced that it is ending the use of angora in the production of its clothing and accessories with immediate effect. This is wonderful news for rabbits, and for everyone who believes in compassionate fashion! French Connection angora victory This victory comes after more than 100,000 compassionate people flooded the store with emails, tweets and Facebook messages asking it to stop supporting cruelty to rabbits, who often have the hair torn from their bodies as they scream in pain on Chinese angora farms.

“As a fashion brand we are responsive to our customers and to trends in the market” French Connection says in a statement on its website. With this move, the company is at last joining ASOS, All Saints, Mango, Tommy Hilfiger, Stella McCartney and other global fashion brands who have committed to a permanent ban on cruel angora.

Thank you to everyone who helped with this campaign, and persuaded FCUK to do the right thing!

If you see angora on sale anywhere else, please speak out and ask the store to remove it. Today’s news proves yet again that your voice makes a difference – and that the tide has truly turned against products made from the hair of bleeding rabbits who scream in pain when they’re live plucked or roughly sheared. With your help, we’ll soon make sure angora is banished from British high streets altogether!
