As a cruelty-free blogger, I get asked the question of leather a lot, and the good news is that I’ve talked about leather in many blog posts already! Whether it’s 3 Reasons To Give Up On Leather, How To Rock Vegan Leather or The Ultimate Pair Of Vegan Boots, or even my blog post on Everything You Need To Know About Vegan Fashion, I talk about this subject in quite a bit of detail.
More than a billion animals are slaughtered for their skins every year. Many of these animals have their tails and horns cut off without painkillers, and some are even skinned and cut apart while still conscious.
However, only in this post I’ll talk about actual alternatives to leather! Yes, I’ve shed some light on the leather industry (not that I can be blamed though) but haven’t offered many leather alternatives apart from brands doing things differently.
Veganism is often considered as a dietary change that avoids all consumption of meat, fish, dairy, eggs and honey – so anything that comes from an animal. Yet, the exact term for those who follow such diet is ‘plant-based’. Being vegan also means excluding animals from our closet, from our make up and so much more!
Here is where this blog comes in place. I’m often asked some advice on how to veganise a closet or which brands to shop from. Whilst I’m still working on my Ultimate Guide of Vegan Fashion Brands, I like to help and wanted to offer some extra help to those who consider themselves plant-based but are looking to cross that extra step and veganise their closet as well.
