  • I was stunned to see that Maresca and Moore's bag is made of leather, the use of which supports cruelty to animals. As successful fashion designer Stella McCartney said in 2012, “Using leather to make a handbag is cruel. But it’s also not modern; you’re not pushing innovation” (New York Times Magazine, 2-22-12). I am saddened that this is the best these women could do.
