Take Action: Goats Thrown, Cut, and Killed for Mohair

A disturbing PETA Asia investigation – the first of its kind – reveals that workers dragged, roughly handled, threw around, mutilated, and even cut the throats of fully conscious goats, some of whom cried out, in South Africa, the world’s top mohair producer. This groundbreaking footage highlights just some of the abuse documented on all 12 of the angora-goat farms the eyewitness visited.

After talks with PETA UK, Arcadia Group has stopped placing orders for mohair products across its eight brands, which include Topshop. Gap Inc. has also agreed to stop placing orders containing mohair, including for its Gap, Old Navy, Banana Republic, and Athleta brands. And Inditex, one of the world's largest clothing retailers and owner of Zara, will ban mohair from its seven apparel brands by 2020. The H&M group—including its eight brands—has decided that it will no longer purchase mohair, effective immediately. After hearing from thousands of compassionate shoppers like you, Forever 21 made the business-savvy and compassionate decision to ban mohair and Anthropologie announced that as of March 2019, it "will not buy or produce products containing mohair." Express, Inc., announced that it has "[no current or] future plans to include mohair in our assortment." Abercrombie & Fitch will not use mohair going forward. See the full list of top retailers that have now banned mohair.

Please ask Free People to drop mohair immediately in favour of animal-friendly materials that are free of cruelty.
