    I do feel sorry for them, they are trying to make a statement but I wish they did not use leather as their medium. Leather, wool, cashmere all involve cruelty to animals. Cows are skinned alive or hung upside down with their throats slit! There is a lot available in vegan leather. Shoes, handbags outerwear everything is available in vegan leather. Try lMatt and Nat BC, Sydney Brown, Angela Roi, and many more,

    Caste distinction is man made. It is not in the religion.
