Angelina Jolie is clearly an animal lover!

Before the U.N. Goodwill Ambassador, 34, stepped out with her new Akris ecru horsehair bag -- which retails for just less than $5,000 -- she asked her stylist to call and make sure that no horses had been harmed in the making of the accessory.

"We told her horses get haircuts just like we do," Akris designer Albert Kriemler told Women's Wear Daily.

Kriemler added that the bag by the Swiss-based luxury brand is made with hair from horses' tails.

The answer must have been good enough for Jolie, who sported the bag while shopping in Venice, Italy, on Saturday with kids Pax, 6, Zahara, 5, and Shiloh, 3.
