Stella McCartney Makes a Purse Out of Her Own Sheep's Wool

Given Stella McCartney's adamant vegetarianism, you might be surprised to learn that she's selling a bag made out of an animal.... Well, the wool of her very own sheep, to be exact.

Given Stella McCartney's adamant vegetarianism, you might be surprised to learn that she's selling a bag made out of an animal.... Well, the wool of her very own sheep, to be exact.

The designer, who will show her ready-to-wear collection on March 4 in Paris, typically uses plastic and cotton to craft her shoes, bags and jackets. Of course she's used wool before, but the Itsy Bitsy bag is extra special, named after the designer's own sheep (and made from their actual wool). Since Itsy and Bitsy were in no way harmed during the shearing process, the company says that the bag fits with her "ethos of sustainability and not harming animals."

The bag is available exclusively on Stellmcartney.com for $1,990. We know one person who is sure to place an order. Paging Mr. Mickey...
