PETA Snaps at Hermes | Fashion Label’s Crocodile Farms Slammed By Animal Rights Group

Posted on: Jun 12

We knew Hermes' Australian crocodile farms were bound to anger PETA, so it's no surprise to hear the animal rights group has hit back.

"The thought of purposely breeding and killing crocodiles for an outdated, overpriced handbag should make any fashionista's skin crawl," the group said in a statement. "If Hermes really wants to be a leader in the fashion industry, it should stop killing animals for cold-blooded vanity and use cruelty-free mock croc and fake snake instead."

I'm sure all animal lovers would agree with PETA's sentiments, but Hermes continues to defy the financial crisis, maintaining its net worth despite the economic downturn. It might not be politically correct anymore, but fashionistas still can't get enough crocodile Birkins. With the prized accessories costing up to $50, 000, it's no wonder Hermes is reluctant to can the croc bags! No one's likely to pay the big bucks for faux reptile skin after all!
