We love animals at Elly Pistol. We could never dream of making a product out of an innocent little animal.
Infact, when our founder Cecilia was a teenager she bacame a vegetarian at the early age of 13.
Even if we are a small player in a big fashion world, we think it is important to take our responsibility and practice what we preach.
Therefore we have sworn to never use anything in our production or in our products that is directly harmful to our animal friends on this earth.
