unless people are running around the forest following a mink family waiting until they reach old age and die, and THEN they take their fur, it would not be okay.

leave the poor little animals in peace.

I agree. I also think you cannot have one without the other. It is hypocritical to shun fur while wearing leather. Take your pick...

So let me ask you this: you personally would never wear or use any genuine leather product? No jackets/coats, no shoes/boots, no belts, no wallets/bags...? You would use synthetic materials only or would you use something natural, like....what?

i can think and do whatever i want with my own convictions....
no need to get into what we should and should not do or what i need to pick... it was just my opinion that mink furs are something different than leather shoes.....those animals are raised only for their fur and the cows are used for more than their hide....

serena i am not sure who you are talking to but i never said i dont use leather only that i would not wear fur and i dont see the huge contradiction.


peace.....

Lele,
i quoted Purplelucrezia & asked her a question about leather. I share your view on fur & leather not being the same

You are correct Serena in assuming that I do not wear leather. Although I will admit that I often like the look of fur and leather and that I am by no means perfect, I do try my best to make ethical choices in my life. I am also a vegetarian, by the way.

i admire your dedication..... i cannot imagine having no leather whatsoever... shoes, furniture, coats, cars, belts, walllets, luggage, it must be really hard but i guess it is possible.....

Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked it. No, I'm not really 84 years old...that was meant to be a joke... (Actually, I just turned 18)

I'd love to own mink one day. Especially a shrug. I'd love to wear a mink shrug with jeans.....fantastic...

here was my BIG IDIOT moment of last spring. Went to neighborhood consignment shop, tried on a mink coat that fit perfectly.....price: $100

AND I DIDN't TAKE IT!!!!!!! IDIOT!

I'll try again there this spring....there are five of them hanging there priced at $1000 right now, hope they will go down.
