Protest Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Alligator Backpack

Target: Net-A-Porter Group Limited

Goal: Do not sell backpack made of black alligator skin

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who run a luxury fashion line called The Row, have gone to great lengths to make “quality” handbags. They frequently use the skin of calves and other animals to make their purses and recently introduced a $17,000 purse crafted with fox furs. Their latest release has outdone all the others, however, in the form of a $34,000 backpack made with the skin of black alligators. According to Net-A-Porter Group Limited, the online luxury fashion retail site that sells the item, the alligator backpack has stunningly sold out due to the fact that apparently some people enjoy owning products made from the skin of slaughtered reptiles.

The well-known activist group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is not pleased with any of The Row’s handbags to date. “What the Olsens lack in creativity,” they said to, “they try to make up for in shock value.” Judging by their new alligator backpack, this is alarmingly true. PETA went on to state their outrage over the fact that foxes, calves, and alligators have their skin ripped off oftentimes when they are still conscious.

Because the backpack is now currently sold out, there is a chance that the making of even more of these awful products can be halted. Sign the petition now to ask Net-A-Porter to remove the alligator backpack from their inventory, and tell them that there is no price on the life of an innocent animal.


Dear Net-A-Porter,

It has come to my attention that you are currently selling a Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen black alligator backpack, priced at $34,000. I must express my outrage over the selling of such a product and question why you would keep an item in your inventory in the first place.

The backpack in question is made from the skin of butchered alligators, and by consenting to sell the item, you are supporting the terrible crime of animal slaughter. Would you sell handbags or backpacks made with the skin of dead humans? I am astounded that the backpack has, in fact, sold out on your website, and I would like to stress that I do not wish for it to return to your metaphoric shelves.

I am disgusted that you would keep such a product in your inventory, and I urge you to not sell items made from animal skin from now on.

  1. Not sanctioning animal slaughter is not fashionable.
