Hermes International SCA said it will penalize any breach of its animal welfare code after Jane Birkin voiced concern over crocodile slaughter methods in the luxury industry.

The actress asked Hermes to remove her name from the Birkin bag after an investigation into crocodile-skinning techniques by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, according to the group. PETA’s video depicted sites in Texas and in Zimbabwe that it said are suppliers to the Paris-based company.
