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. She recently asked Hermès to rename the bag until better practices are met, whilst PETA bought a stake in the French luxury brand in another attempt to get their point across. The animal rights’ organisation is on it – and though we feel they could do with a slightly more collaborative approach, we hope that their urge along with Jane Birkin’s will prompt Hermès to reconsider their use of exotic skins.
