PETA India's co-ordinator for campaigns and legal affairs N G Jayasimha said that the $4.8 billion turnover company had given an assurance to PETA, US, in this regard.
He said another US retail giant Kenneth Cole, with an annual sales of $518 million, had given a commitment to PETA, US that it would not sell leather from India.
"The suffering of cows and other animals is horrific. Our government has done nothing to reduce the suffering and the Indian leather industry supports the unabated torture of animals", he said adding that the PETA expected more retailers abroad to boycott Indian leather.
Indian animals used for leather are transported under poor and crowded conditions leading to breaking of bones, suffocation and sometimes even death enroute to slaughter houses, he said.
The animals are dragged and beaten cruelly, he alleged.
