Yeah, I can't tell if fab just wanted to give us another word for our fashion vocabulary, but I am completely against ivory usage. Only elephants should use it, IMO. Plus, isn't it funny that a LOT of ivory is used to create elephant decor pieces? Like, a sculpture of little statue made of ivory into an elephant??

Fab, please tell me this is not a real ivory bracelet! If it's not it's extremely over-priced for a plastic bangle, but if it is I'd be very disappointed to see you promoting something that inevitably promotes a trade that leads to the slaughter of elephants.

Are you crazy, cruel or just plain stupid? You do realize that to have that ugly thing you have to kill a beautiful elephant? Please sort out your priorities!!
