The Leather Bag: Hermes

The Hermes bag is a classic, timeless bag that suits many occasions from day time to a sophisticated night out. Now I'm not an advocate for leather or exotic skins and I am completely against the consumerism cycle and the cruelty involved. So, if I were ever to buy one of these bags it would be second-hand as buying a product second-hand does not actually support the cycle of supply and demand. Leather as a product brings up all sorts of ethical and environmental issues but I see no point in discarding these bags and not using them for all they've got. In fact, I would see it as an insult to the animals if I were to just waste something that contained an animal product. I cannot say the same about fur as I believe fur can have much more of an influential and negative effect, whereas leather is so common I would not really be influencing anyone by wearing a second-hand leather bag. I made this post before I was fully aware of the inhumane and environmentally damaging effects leather can have on animals and our planet, however I have decided to keep it as a topic of possible discussion :)
