Jane recently asked Hermès to rename the Birkin bag until better practices are met.
Following the recent attention to alligator farming conditions in the making of luxury reptile skin bags such as Hermès Birkin (which we covered here), Jane Birkin herself has taken note and expressed her discontent with the cruel way the bag named after herself is produced.
