Seven of the Cutest Reasons to Support Vegan Fashion
Many sweet, thinking and feeling animals are unfortunately harmed and killed for fashion. Here are seven of these animals - seven cute reasons to support vegan fashion.
Number 1: Cows

Despite their capacity to feel both positive and negative emotions, cows skins are used widely in the fashion industry.
Instead of cow skin leather, we use a synthetic leather with half the environmental impact, as well as a material based in pineapple leaf fibre.
Number 2: Goats

The skins of goats are often used by supposedly luxury fashion labels.
Instead, we use vegan materials like those seen in our Wild Nature collection.
Number 3: Snakes

Many snakes are farmed or stolen from their natural habitat, killed for the sake of fashion.
Our vegan ‘snake’ collection is created from vegan, man-made materials instead.
Number 4: Sheep
Sheep experience the same range of emotions any person does - happiness, boredom, despair, and fear. They are playful and sensitive creatures.
Sheep are exploited and killed in the fashion industry for both their skin and wool - and yes, the wool industry kills sheep.
Our collection of tweed bags is not made of wool as conventional tweed is, but is instead vegan, protecting sheep and lambs.
Number 5: Lizards

Many lizard breeds are sadly killed for the sake of fashion, including monitor lizards, like this handsome lizard above.
Our ‘reptilian’ looking bags are vegan, and no lizards are harmed.
Number 6: Pigs

Pigs are even smarter than our beloved pet dogs, and share the exact same capacity to feel joy, fear and pain.
Though it may surprise many, pig skins are some of the most commonly used in fashion.
In contrast, all of our vegan leather bags are made from man-made or natural plant-based materials.
Number 7: Crocodiles

Many fashion labels pay for crocodiles to be killed for the sake of fashion.
The handbags in our Wild Nature collection are all made from vegan materials that mimic the beautiful textures and patterns of crocodiles - without harming them a single bit.
