Actually, I'm not sure if I would support leather companies. Not because they're made from animal skins, but because I remember learning about this one leather tannery that had to be shut down because it was polluting drinking water and causing a leukemia epidemic.
I agree (well I do with many of your stamps, but this one caters to me the most ) I have about...three leather jackets that are still functional (the fourth has a busted zipper and is too big for me anyway, might see if I can palm it off to someone else for a small fee I can put towards another I want to have made based off my design ) Many comments here state how sexy they are, it's amazing how much better one can look in good leather clothing, though I must admit some are too hideous to be saved by it, and if it's a cheap-looking jacket or too big etc it looks crap too. But the right person in the right leather =
Screw the activists who say that it's "wrong" - the fact is even if we banned leather, people would still eat beef anyway. It would only be wrong if that's the sole reason why they are killed. But I think in most cases the hides are just used from cows killed for their meat anyway - if anything, the leather companies are just reducing the amount of the animal wasted
Most definately <3 And they're protective as hell [well made ones anyway] When my dad got into a motorbike accident, the only thing that got fucked up on the jacket was the zip-it melted after grinding on the tarmac a few metres. The rest of him was pretty fucked appart from his upper body where the jacket was.
