We are slowly moving into a paradigm where ethics and conscious decisions are a vital part of fashion, food and lifestyle. The world-famous fashion house Versace publicly quitted fur. Stella McCartney introducing a brand new synthetic technology which will replace animal leather. Yes, that’s vegan leather what we are talking about. Dig in to know more what it is and why you should be using it.

What Is Vegan Leather?

Vegan leather is often made from polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order for any designer’s whim. Innovative and sustainable materials such as pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic are also used to create them. Vegan leather is versatile. From jackets in every cut and colour to the perfect little black dress is possible. Even everyday items like wallets, boots, handbags, billfolds, and seat covers for your car.-there’s a vegan leather version.

Why Choose Vegan Product?

Not only does vegan leather make you look good, but it also makes you feel good because it’s cruelty-free. More than a billion cows, pigs, goats, sheep, alligators, ostriches, kangaroos, and even dogs and cats are cruelly slaughtered for their skins every year. The tails and horns of many of these animals are cut off without painkillers, and some are even skinned and cut apart while still conscious. On the other hand, this option offers a killer look without any killing.

Is It A Sustainable Choice?

Planet Earth loves sustainable vegan products, too.  For instance, turning skin into leather takes loads of energy and a toxic brew of chemicals—including mineral salts, coal-tar derivatives, formaldehyde, oils, dyes, and finishes, some of them cyanide-based. Tannery waste contains water-fouling salt, lime sludge, sulfides, acids, and other pollutants. You’ll not only be saving animals from being abused but also contribute towards a better future for the planet.

How about some Jackets to start with. Vegan handbag also sounds great right?

 

How brilliant are these small ways to save our planet earth? Right from wallets to purses to cardholders.

But Be Very Careful!

The most commonly used materials for this are polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polyurethane (PU), which are plastic-based materials. Another term for fake leather is -pleather which comes from the term plastic leather. These two commonly used synthetic materials have raised questions about the safety and dangers of vegan products to the environment. Very few vegan leathers are made from natural materials although it is possible to find more eco-friendly products made from materials like cork, kelp and even pineapple leaves.

 

In conclusion, we hope you’ll make the right choice about the leather you buy next time. Related article- Sustainable Fashion: What Does It Encompass?

Yeezy Boost 350 V2 

We’ve obviously saved the best for the last–the super gorgeous Yeezy Boosts that have already disappeared into thin air, weeks after its global launch. A few independent dealers and websites might still have a few pieces in stock but the chances of you finding your size are harder than expecting Kanye West to smile.

Nike Airmax 270 React

A brand new addition to the popular Air Max lineage, these brand new colourful renditions are even better than the previous ones. The unique sculpting and Nike React sole technology makes it an uber-comfy option to wear all day.

Puma CELL Stellar Women’s Trainers

Marketed by our beloved supermodel Cara Delevinge, these sneakers have received rave reviews from customers. This new version tilts more towards streetwear and less towards sports. We’re digging the futuristic look but kinda not amused by its aesthetic similarity with quite a few existing kicks in the market.

Adidas Originals Ozweego

This pair is a kicka*s mix of the 90s retro aesthetic mixed with modern elements. The impeccable design comes in soft mesh, suede, and smooth TPU (Thermoplastic polyurethane). The streamlined body combined with chunky heel height gives the shoes a dynamic look. These drop online super soon. Releases on August 8, 2019.
