Fashion WTF: Hermes Now Breeding Crocodiles For Their Handbags

Designer label Hermes has announced that they are breeding their own crocodiles to meet demand for their leather bags. Go ahead and read that again.

Chief executive Patrick Thomas told Reuters: “We are now breeding our own crocodiles on our own farms, mainly in Australia. We cannot face demand. We have massive over-demand. We are limited by our ability to train new craftsmen. Hermes already faces a major challenge producing 3,000 crocodile bags a year.”

It can take three or four crocodiles to provide enough skin for one bag and breeding can often be expensive as the animals need to be kept apart in separate rooms to minimize skin damage from bites.

In other words, this is all really messed up. But I guess I really shouldn’t be surprised considering the fur and factory farms of the world. To think that these animals are being raised for the sole purpose of being turned into $50K handbags blows my mind. Especially when you’ve got people running the show saying things like this: “The world is not full of crocodiles, except the stock exchange!”

Hahaha —  screw you, Hermes.
