Versace deletes Facebook protests on sandblasting
The luxury Italian brand Versace de-activated its Facebook wall after activists posted dozens of messages demanding that the company ban sandblasting. Scores of other denim producing brands have already publicly banned sandblasting, a technique which can kill the workers involved, but Versace, along with Armani, Dolce & Gabbana have failed to address the issue or even enter into a dialogue with CCC.
