PETA is ripping fashion designer duo Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen for using animal pelts to create their latest backpack, which retails for around $17,000.

That's not a typo.

“What the Olsens lack in creativity, they try to make up for with shock value,” the animal rights group said in a statement regarding the pricey accessory.

PETA Hates Olsen Twins

PETA protesters (seen here in 2008) have gone after the Olsen Twins for years.

The backpack is a patchwork design made of various animal furs, a fact that has PETA livid with the twosome to the point of bitter name-calling.

"If it looks like a troll and acts like a troll, it's probably a Trollsen Twin - or somebody wearing one of their new totes," the group continues.

PETA calls on consumers not to purchase the products "which are made from the fur and skins of innocent animals" or anything by the Olsens.

Ashley Olsen and Mary Kate Olsen, who jointly run The Row, captured the Womenswear Designer of the Year honors at the CFDA Fashion Awards in June.

They should probably be on the lookout for paint can assaults.

At the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Awards Monday night, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen won the 2012 Womenswear Designers of the Year award.

For their work on their own line, the Row, obviously.

Johnny Depp was also lauded for his personal style, though just one night after rocking with The Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards, Depp opted to sit this one out.

The 48-year-old Dark Shadows star wasn't present to accept his Fashion Icon award, so his friend and Cry-Baby director John Waters accepted on his behalf.

The night belonged to the Olsens, although Olivier Sarkozy, who is reportedly cozying up to Mary-Kate of late, was not on hand to support his girl. Oh well.

Here's a look at some of the big fashion winners from the event:

Coming out of her sister's shadow at last, Ashley Olsen strips down to a bra and bares her midriff in racy photos for the Summer 2009 issue of V Man magazine.

Olsen also dons a brown wig for the photo shoot, done to promote the launch of The Row's menswear line this fall. She designed the brand with sis Mary-Kate.

What attracts Ashley Olsen to a man? Or at least men's fashion?

"To touch a man who has a soft sweater on, a soft pant, a great jacket, or something that, as a woman, I want to take off and put on and feel sexy in," she says.

Ashley says she is content focusing on fashion designing these days, but her sister, "still wants to focus on acting," she says. As for whether they're still close?

"I see her like 10 times a day."

Here's a celebrity fashion showdown where picking the winner may be a bigger challenge than getting one of the celebrities involved to eat dinner.
