by MR Magazine Staff

Asos is banning products which contain feathers, silk, cashmere and mohair from its website. The fashion retailer says it has updated its animal welfare policy and will stop stocking products using these materials by the end of January 2019. Animal rights group Peta said it “applauds Asos for leading the charge for compassion in fashion”. Asos has already banned fur, angora and other rabbit hair and products which use materials from vulnerable animals. Under the updated policy, products containing silk, feathers and down, bone, teeth or shell (including mother-of-pearl), cashmere and mohair will no longer be stocked by Asos.
