Please Help Rabbits Tortured for Angora

“If it says ‘Angora,’ remember the gentle rabbits whose fur was cruelly ripped out of their skin – and leave the item on the rack.”
PETA UK Associate Director Mimi Bekhechi

Address list update December 14th – scroll down for the contact details of more retailers that sell angora – New list is about half way down. Also added December 23rd a petition for you to sign, please scroll further 

If you have not done so already, before continuing please read the previous blog entry: Rabbits Scream in Pain as Their Fur is Plucked While They Are Alive!
– Watch the video if you can but be please be warned it is very distressing. This is by far the most shocking video I have ever seen of animal cruelty, this atrocity has to stop now.

PETA ask you to refuse to buy angora and to ask family and friends to do the same.

There is however more action we can take to stop this atrocity.

Action You Can Take

I hope in time PETA will organise further action such petitions and letter writing campaigns.

In the mean time

Please Write to Retailers – Also please sign this petition to tell Ralph Lauren to stop selling angora

Please write and ask retailers to stop selling angora products made in China.

Please be polite, the store you are contacting may not be aware of the treatment of rabbits in Chinese farms.

Here is a list of stores that sell angora:

As ninety per cent of angora clothing is produced in China it is highly likely that the angora sold in the following stores is made in China.

A  friend and I have done an on-line search for stores that sell angora however as the country of origin is not included in the on-line information I cannot be absolutely certain that the garments sold by each store come from China. Nonetheless it is worth writing to ask them not to stock angora produced in China.

I began my letter with:

“As a retailer of angora products I urge you to please consider not selling angora clothing that is produced in China.” Then I went on to explain what happens to rabbits in Chinese farms and included the PETA link and links to the Independent and the Daily Mail.

Thanks to Rabbits United Forum user Compass for the list of retailers below. There are no doubt other stores which sell angora and if you know of any not on this list please let me know by leaving a comment.

  • John Lewis
  • Laura Ashley
  • Debenhams
  • Topshop
  • Ted Baker
  • Lidl
  • ASOS
  • Net-A-Porter
  • White Stuff
  • Marks and Spencers
  • La redoute
  • Phase Eight
  • New Look
  • Whistles
  • Oasis

  • American Apparel

Letters are more effective and more likely to be read, but please if this is not possible send e-mail or use the stores on-line form. Please do your best and write to as many of these stores as possible.

The information below is correct to the best of my ability. Please verify yourself if you have any doubts. There’s not always an appropriate subject choice for e-mail or on-line forms, few stores provide a general e-mail address. Where appropriate I have advised the best subject selection.

Also please consider writing on the Facebook and Twitter pages of retailers asking them to stop selling angora products made in China.

It is important to keep in mind that this is a problem world-wide. 

Although the PETA campaign included on this blog is featured on their UK website many other countries world-wide sell angora products produced in China.

A similar campaign can be found on PETA’s USA website:

This is a list update 14th December with new addresses of retailers that sell angora.
I rather think that any store that sells clothing is likely to stock angora so I intend to add as many stores as possible.

Evans – Arcadia
Harvey Nichols
Edinburgh Woollen Mill
French Connection
River Island
British Home Stores
Top Shop/Topman
Harrods LTD
French Connection
Simply Be/Fashion World,
Yours Clothing,
If as many people as possible can write to any of these stores about the cruelty of rabbits hopefully things will change. I know it is a busy time of year but just do the best you can. Some of the list was sent by a blog visitor – see comment below. I have endeavoured to find postal addresses for as many as possible and on-line contact details. Unfortunately it seems some retailers are not that helpful in providing contact details.
On-line Form
Head Office
Next Retail Ltd
Desford Road


Head Office
Gillibrands Road, Skelmersdale, Lancashire, WN8 9TB


This retailer is number one with regards to difficult to find contact details.

On-line form – There are two on-line forms .  I would worry about the reliability of either concerning this issue and recommend that you write a letter if possible.

Evans / Arcadia
Head Office
This is the only address I could find other than one for recruitment.
This is the head office for the Arcadia group which includes Evans and a number of other high street shops.

Top Shop/Topman
Concerning Top Shop. This store is really unhelpful as regard to any obvious contact information on its website other than by telephone. I tracked down a customer service e-mail address included in the Terms and Conditions Page right at the bottom customer. service@TOPSHOP.COM.
I recommend that for this store a letter would most certainly be the best option.

Top Man have an on-line contact form – choose Stock Query

Heard Office
Topshop Topman

There appears to be no head office address for Wallis
Wallis however like Evans is part of the Arcadia Group.

This is the address of the head Office of Arcadia

Harrods LTD
On-line Contact form

87-135 Brompton Rd, London SW1X 7XL

Simply Be/Fashion World,

I think Simply Be and Fashion World belong to the same group – all very complicated as I am unfamiliar with either. Below is the best I could do with tracking down their contact details. if anyone has any further contact information regarding either please let me know.
Really hard work finding contact details for this retailer. –

On-line form. I choose the “our products” option



This is the only postal address I could find
Griffin House
40 Lever Street
Greater Manchester
M60 6ES

Yours Clothing,

On-line Form:
Registered office:

Yours Clothing
1184 Lincoln Road,

Don’t overlook the  supermarkets
On-line Form

33 Holborn
On-line form –
I think it is best if you can to send a letter by post as there is no real e-mail or online form- at least one that looks reliable. The above which is for Tesco Direct is probably the best way to make  contact on-line. I would not recommend on-line contact with this store.

Postal Address
Tesco Head Office
Shire Park, Falcon Way
AL7 1TW Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire


There appears to be no on-line contact address for ASDA. Clicking on their contact link right at the bottom of the homepage takes you to this page which as you will see is anything but a contact page, no e-mail, no on-line form. Anyone would think they do not wish to hear from their customers.

So please if you are able to write only one postal letter please write it to  ASDA.

Great Wilson St,
West Yorkshire LS11 5AD

If for some reason letters are not possible please send a tweet
Or contact by their Facebook page

Update December 16th


E-mail –

Postal address

Please now sign the pledge if you have not already done so

Ben Williamson, a spokesman for PETA, said: “Ninety per cent of the world’s Angora come from China.

“Chances are if you are buying Angora, it comes from China.

“In half of the farms visited by our Asia investigator, they saw this live plucking happen.”

Please say no to angora wool and join PETA’s campaign against this cruel and violent industry by clicking this link:

Will add to the list if more contact details become available

It is important to keep in mind that this is a problem world-wide.

According to CBS News “The soft fiber (angora)is used as an element in sweaters and other knitwear found at stores all over America.”

More information about this atrocity including a video many of us will find disturbing

Please return to this page for further updates and if you know of any stores not listed above please include in the comments.

If there are any errors or links not working please let me know by leaving a comment. Thank you.

Apologies for the rather messed up formatting, hopefully will rectify as soon as possible. This update has been a huge and time consuming task and I do not wish to delay further because of formatting errors.

  1. I was looking for tips on how to write letters to support PETA’s campaign when I saw this blog. Thank you so much for this very useful info, I have written to the UK stores and also shared your blog on Facebook. I hope the horrific cruelty in angora production which PETA has uncovered is stopped forever. I always used to buy angora jumpers and scarves and had no idea such cruelty could be involved.

    • Thank you for sharing this on Facebook and for writing letters, the more people who do so the more chance we have that things will change. I think few people know the cruelty behind angora and other similar products and I hope that as soon as people do, this horrendous cruelty will stop.

  2. Thank you so much for all your hard work finding out the other companies and their contact details – will get onto that now.
