Wear It Kind

Every year billions of animals are used globally to make the clothes we wear. The companies making these clothes often know little about the welfare of the animals involved. But the reality for many of these animals is spending their entire lives caged, living in poor conditions, or suffering painful mutilations. It doesn’t have to be this way.

Together, we are exposing the cruelty faced by the animals used in fashion and creating a future where great fashion doesn’t cause great suffering. Change is happening thanks to people taking action, and the number of brands moving towards a kinder future for animals is growing all the time. 
Let’s create a world where animal-friendly fashion is the only kind of fashion!  

The issues animals face for clothing 

Find out more about:

WOOL

Wool


Widely used across the Australian wool industry, the mutilation practice of mulesing causes intense suffering and pain for millions of lambs annually.

FUR

Fur


In the past years up to 100 million animals are killed for their fur annually. Most are raised on farms, trapped in tiny wire cages and forced to endure a shocking life of cruelty, while millions of wild animals are also caught and killed for their fur.

LEATHER

Leather


Animal skins are prevalent throughout fashion. The suffering these animals face is often appalling and there is zero traceability as to their standard of care. For exotic leather, this trade is fraught with wildlife trafficking.
Find out the truth here.

DOWN

Down


The production of down feathers for clothing and bedding is a huge industry. Every year, billions of ducks and millions of geese endure brutal treatment to supply down feathers.
