Leica has never used real ostrich leather on their products

I received a clarification from Leica regarding the Leica X1 Black Embossed Ostrich Limited Edition camera that was released in Japan last week and specifically the comment from PETA regarding the use of ostrich leather:

"I just wanted to let you know that this product is not made from real ostrich leather – it is an ‘ostrich effect’. We have never used ostrich leather on our products, and we have now confirmed this to the PETA organisation."
