Boomerangs typically cost $5-$25. Chanel’s boomerang cost approximately $1,460 and is made of wood and resin. Not only is it ridiculously expensive for what it is, it’s a "misappropriation of Aboriginal culture" according to Gabrielle Sullivan, chief executive of the Indigenous Arts Code.
Chanel hates it when people steal their logos and make copies of their products. They’ve received backlash from the product and according to a spokesperspon, “Chanel is extremely commited to respecting all cultures, and regrets that some may have felt offended. “
There seems to be no way to buy the boomerang from Chanel’s website anymore but there are already owners.
