THE AUTONOMOUS COLLECTION
"It is important that we help to preserve this species, not only just because I am an animal lover but for cultural and environmental issues. One of my favourite quotes are: Human kind has not woven the web of life, We are but one thread within it, Whatever we do to the web, We do to ourselves, All things are bound together, All things connect. The elephant is an extremely peaceful and intelligent creature and I am very proud to be apart of this process".
