“Ostrich skin has cachet in the world of luxury accessories, but like most exotic materials, it comes at a price to animals,” says Women’s Wear Daily.
In an effort to bring awareness to ostrich farm conditions and to offer a stylish alternative, PETA and luxe vegan shoemaker Rebecca Mink have created a vegan fabric ostrich-print flat hand stamped in Italy available for pre-order now through Jan. 8. 20% of sales will go toward PETA’s lifesaving work.
