Our Ethically Made Promise

CLOTHING & ACCESSORIES

We make the conscious choice to stock Vegan Leather. Vegan leather can be made from innovative and sustainable materials such as pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic. Some of it is made from polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order to suit any designer’s needs.

Not only does vegan leather make you look good, it also makes you feel good because you know no one had to suffer for your products. 

Sustainable vegan leather is the best option for the living planet, too. Turning animal 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, sulphides, acids, and other pollutants. The demand for leather also fuels the destruction of the Amazon rainforest, as Brazilian cattle ranchers supply leather to leading global fashion brands and retailers.

Because of the massive amounts of manure and slaughter waste, intensive water use, deforestation, and greenhouse-gas emissions involved in its production, leather is the most environmentally damaging material, as confirmed by the 2017 “Pulse of the Fashion Industry” report. Please see  'Vegan Leather' for more information. 

As we move forward in fashion, we are leading the way to ensure that we protect and respect the lives of animals. We thank you for supporting our brand and our mission to making this world a better place for all.
