Recently, the Oscar de l Rent brand has come under great criticism from users, as well as from an organization that is doing its best to protect our smaller brothers - PETA.
PETA posted a message on its website stating that the fashion house uses nothing more than elephant skin to create its shoes.
Representatives of Oscar de l Rent were outraged by such accusations and promptly provided PETA with evidence that their information was a mistake. As it turned out, the reason for this error was the incorrectly indicated composition of the brand's products, where instead of "elaphe" (a genus of snake of the snake family), "elephant" was written. "elephant".
The Gilt Groupe, which caused the scandal, has already admitted its mistake and corrected its mistake.
“Unfortunately, many of our consumers saw it and were outraged, and we share their feelings. Our company has never used and will never use elephant skin in any of our products,”said a spokesperson for Oscar de lRent.
