Don’t get us wrong: we’re not saying we’re against leathers and furs, but there comes a brief moment when you think, “I wonder where this angora sweater came from” (actually, we didn’t even know what an angora rabbit looked like until now). So, we found a few of the living material providers of some of our fashion favourites.
Warning: May cause cuteness overload. Or sadness overload (hey, we’re not here to take sides).
