Leather = skin. And there’s no way to tell if that skin originates from a cow, sheep, dog or cat. Every year, the global leather industry slaughters more than a billion animals and tans their skins and hides.
Many of these animals endure all the horrors of factory farming including extreme crowding and confinement, deprivation, and anaesthetized castration, branding, and tail-docking as well as cruel treatment during transport and slaughter.
Many assume that leather is a byproduct of the meat industry, and while some leather does come from cows used for meat and milk in the US, even more leather comes from China and India.
The world’s leading leather exporter is China, where there are no penalties for abusing animals on farms apart from sheeps, kill approximately 2 million cats and dogs for their skins each year. The cats and dogs are often skinned and hacked to pieces while they’re still alive and struggling to breathe.
We are slowly moving into a paradigm where ethics and conscious decisions are a vital part of fashion, food and lifestyle.
There are many alternatives to leather, including cotton, linen, rubber, ramie, canvas, and synthetics.
