PETA Asia's investigative footage shows workers in China--where about 90 percent of the world's angora fur comes from--tying rabbits down and ripping their fur out while they scream in fear and pain.

This is below human. There is NO words that will make this horror stop, because they have no soul. To hear a rabbit scream is a profound thing. They make an ungodly sound. To not FEEL something when that happens, you have to have a brick for a heart.
Cotton. That's all I wear. Hopefully, no animals were harmed in the planting and harvesting of that.

Noted and signed - this rubbish lot of sub humans should be bombarded by animal lovers and their hair pulled out so that they can feel the pain, fear and suffering these innocent little animals have to feel. I hope their profits spiral downwards and that the owners of this company burn in hell.

You know what is the saddest about this whole thing. If you want Angora fur, the rabbits will actually give it up to you quite willingly. They shed, just like chickens molt, and you can easily comb it out of their double coat. It just takes a bit more labor. Or if you are really in a hurry, you can shear them, just as a sheep would be shorn, and for the same reason, because they become so hot from the insulating fur in the summer that they can die. But to rip them to pieces? How does this even make economic sense?

The company that owns the GAP also owns Banana Republic and Old Navy so it would be good to stay away from them as well.

Signed and Noted !! I got this one direct from PETA earlier in the day and couldn't face watching the video because I knew what was coming ........ NO WAY can I face watching it NOW - just before going to bed !!! This is just so SICKENING ..... it's just PURE GREED - as Kamia says, there are several other method to get the fur from Angoras (all painless) so there is no excuse !!! Another article I read say that MANY of these rabbits die anyway as a result of this .... so where's the point EVEN from a profit point of view??? SICK SICK SICK !!!
