Rome, October 19 - An animal rights group in Rome
demonstrated in front of the Dolce & Gabbana boutique on Piazza
di Spagna Friday, protesting methods used in the production of
jeans sold by the fashion house.
Joining with the Clean Clothes Campaign, the animal rights
group Animalisti Italiani protested the designer house's use of
leather, fur and especially the practice of sand-blasting jeans
that is dangerous for workers producing the garments.
Protesters had written on their nude torsos "Hundreds of
children die to lighten your jeans" and "Your clothing is soaked
in blood".
Dressed as workers, the activists simulated death by
suffocation, a side effect of illnesses due to silicon
inhalation by factory employees.
The process, banned in Europe since 1966, is still used in
developing countries such as China, India, Bangladesh and
Pakistan.
Animalisti Italiani said that "despite an international
petition, Dolce & Gabbanna continues to ignore the deadly
effects of this technique".
