Government-backed promotional body the Council of Leather Exports (CLE) which promotes Indian footwear, apparel, and leather hides around the world, has a new fight on its hands. The council has lost around $28m worth of orders from brands such as Gap, Florsheim, J. Crew, Clarks, Fiorucci, and Liz Claiborne cancelling orders following accusations from animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
