The Hidden Costs Fine Leather Goods

I love fine leather goods. It's a weakness.  My husband thinks I collect handbags and shoes, but it's not true. It's the leather, the more rich and supple the better. So of course this lends itself to e-reader covers, car seats, coasters...it's a real interest. Though recently, I came across a video on Perez Hilton (don't judge me) that was almost as chilling as the narrative of  conflict diamonds and the torture over hair weave. Has anyone seen the task of leather tanning??? This features a 17year old in Morocco whose family has been tanning hides for generations. It is nasty, disgusting and after further research involves child labor.




It almost changed my life...Almost. *touching handbag*
