LAHORE - Élan's limited edition exotic handbag collection 'Sauvage Coeur' has launched at Galleria Lahore and Maison Élan Karachi on 9th June 2018. The brand boasts of selling real python and crocodile skin. This is the actual definition of animal cruelty.

Millions of lizards, alligators, crocodiles and other reptiles are violently killed every year so that their skins can be sold at prices shooting sky high. However while some were curious about prices, others wanted to place orders but a minority spoke up against the promotion of this line of bags/clutches.

One Facebook user caught our eye, she makes the most sense here. She makes other women aware of the procedure adopted prior to the sale of animal skin.

"Beyond disgusting. Such animal cruelty!!! I’m horrified." said one more. "Ammar bilal used to have ostrich leather purses in his shop once upon a time. 2lakh+ ka bag. Zaalim log. Qabar may lay k jayengay paisay" wrote another.

These exotic items, according to theory, sell to only 2 percent of the entire population. They represent the luxury market. Top retailers such as Topshop, Ann Taylor, Adidas, H&M, and Victoria’s Secret have vowed to steer clear of exotic skins.

However, Elan has earlier been criticized for this line of skin in 2016, this is the second time it is under fire for it's choice of product.

Let us now have a look at the true horror that leads to such exotic items.
