Please tell your opinion about using material like leather?

Do you think that all uses of leather accessory is unmoral

or that you can use leather goods in your fashion stand, together with

Green conscience. Is it possible to combine these two if the manufacturer

Concerned the complexity of working with lather and chose to work, only with up cycle lather.

So, write what you have to say and come visit my blog for

You may well be the most sophisticated spam bot ever wrote. It's lucky I like a good poll. I'm always willing to spend a few minutes doing some unpaid research. Mainly because it makes me feel like I've got a voice but I do realise this makes extra work for you.

Here goes:

Leather is fine provided you honour the beast by eating it and using every bit of the beast and respect the beast and for gods sake kill it humanely. This is important.

It can chaff

Do you think that all uses of leather accessory is unmoral

no, but possibly immoral.

Concerned the complexity of working with lather and chose to work, only with up cycle lather.

I often work with a lather. It does make my hands slippery and the sweat stings my eyes. It is quite a concern.

It is probably only morally acceptable today if it comes from road-kill, and has already been tanned by a double-b.

But wait, hang-on that's probably a bad use of carbon in the engine of the truck.

In NZ for instance they like you to run over the possums and possum leather and possum fur is now mixed with merino and gives a very soft black natural fur.

So in Australia pig leather is probably the only morally acceptable leather, along with cane-toad or fox.

Rabbit fur for Akubra's is morally acceptable as well.

Maybe there is an argument for Kangaroo leather in the Nthn Territory, where they apparently have excessive nos of one part of our national coat-of-arms.

Oh, and camel leather is regarded as a luxury in some parts of the world.

With nos increasing in the middle of Australia, that could be a moral alternative.

With live exports increasing, we will probably run out of leather, and have to import it from 3rd world countries. We will get our cows back without the best bits.

Mooo!

I thought the process of tanning was also considered environmentally unfriendly as well, as it used to involve toxic chemicals and waste. Have we overcome that?

I would draw the line at cat or dog leather. Come to that anything I don't eat.

I can only imagine that also rules out grandparents?

You might draw the line there, but lots of other people don't.

There is a lot of dog-fur trim mixed in with the fake stuff in this years women's winter fashions.

I have processed a fair few furs (mostly bunny & fox) in my time and once you get your eye in for it, it is easy to spot. So to speak.

They strip the guard hairs out of it, and it makes a nice soft fashionable fur finish. For those with a strong stomach.

I leaqrnt recently that since clothing and textiles has moved offshore skins in this country are now worthless and it was only a decade or two back that you could get decent coin for them, when you consider it si additional income on top of the meat.

One of the fellas who works with me said after butchering cattle you could on top of the meat get $20.00 for the skin back in the day, now they are near worthless as there is nowhere to get them tanned.

We have an abundance of leather in this country as a by product of meat, I consider it wastefull that we do not use it.

I am surprised more has not been made about dog fur in fashion... That is pretty rough.

Where I go fishing there are a few foxes that are really tame. I cannot believe that no one has corralled and killed them.

(I should add they quite like eating fresh fish...)

My brother has tried dog soup (bo-shin-tang) in Korea. He didn't rave about it. I really don't have a problem with people wearing fur provided the fur is not from an endangered species and the animal is treated and killed humanely.
