I don't have a problem with leather, I think this bag is ugly though.

I have lots of leather stuff I'll admit it and I'm not anti-fur in the sense where I will picket and throw paint on someone's fur coat or make them feel bad about wearing fur. But what I don't understand how people are commenting on the fur items, screaming about how cruel it is, but for Leather items (Birkin bag, new Coach Camilla bag), Crocodile (Birkin again) and Python items nobody says anything. Like they forget where leather and these animal skins come from! Animal skin is what is usually right underneath fur people. Drives me crazy. Either you're against it all or none.

In Southeast Asia, envelope bags are "in"--but they use grass straw, indigenous fibers like banana , water lily, and tinalak. They're beautiful.
