Environmental campaign group Greenpeace has found traces of chemicals that can pollute waterways in children's clothing and shoes made by luxury brands, challenging the sector's reputation for higher standards than those of mass fashion.In a report issued Monday just before Milan Fashion Week, Greenpeace said it found the substances in products from Dolce & Gabbana, Giorgio Armani, Versace, Hermes, Christian Dior, Louis Vuitton and Marc Jacobs. Greenpeace has been campaigning against pollutants used in the textile industry since 2011 . The chemicals Greenpeace tested for have been commonly used in textile manufacturing, but are gradually being phased out by some brands due to concern about their polluting impact.However, Louis Vuitton said it shared Greenpeace's concerns as it recognized "the intrinsic hazardous properties" of the chemicals used in the industry and said it was working hard to exceed current environmental standards.
