French Connection ends angora use

16th October 2014

French Connection has ended the use of angora in the production of its clothing and accessories with immediate effect.

We have always maintained the highest standards in our supply chain and have taken steps to ensure that the angora used in French Connection clothing is carefully collected by shearing and that the rabbits are not mistreated. We would never allow or condone the plucking of fur from live rabbits.

As a fashion brand we are responsive to our customers and to trends in the market and, despite the steps we have taken to ensure high standards in angora production, we recognise some customers have concerns about the continued inclusion of these fabrics in our ranges.
