The statement added that her designs will use high quality fabric substitutes for leather.

"Stella MCCartney is a lifelong vegetarian and committed advocate of animal rights and doesn't use any leather or fur in any of her collections," Contactmusic quoted the statement, as saying.

"All the accessories designed in collaboration with Adidas are made with alternative to leather: high performance fabrics, which don't use any animal by products including kangaroo leather," the statement added.
