although I love the look of leather and the color, I do not support the killing of animals to use their god given fur and hide or feathers for our benifit, or our ego. we can use synthetics and look alikes. Harming animals is taking lives. to me it is selfiish, thoughtless human beings who kill animals, along with using ivory, and animal testing. over 50.000 elephants are being killed every year. I don't support animal mills either.
