I searched for this topic before, but to no avail. As both a handbag lover and a vegetarian, I am torn on whether or not I condone carrying and wearing leather. I have a few leather bags (Coach and the like), but they were bought before I was a vegetarian. There aren't many designer non-leather handbags that I really like. I think the only ones are perhaps Kate Spade? It is common for vegetarians to carry and wear leather, I think. For example, for anyone who has ever seen Roseanne, Sara Gilbert ("Darlene") is a vegetarian in real life, but I've seen many pictures of her carrying a Louis Vuitton Multicolore Alma. The fact that vegetarian celebrities and other vegetarians carry leather doesn't make it right, of course, just an example of the fact that it does seem common. But I digress. What do you guys think?
