Fashion is versatile. It is changing, unique and also considerate about many things such as keeping the environment and animals safe. The latter one, the safety of animals, comes directly connected to the usage and production of leather for fashion purposes.
For quite some time, the fashion industry and manufacturing have been using vegan leather instead of a real one. It is eco-friendly, does not come from animals and it is very chic. Here is all that you need to know about vegan leather:

What is vegan leather?
Vegan leather is also known as faux leather. Most often, it is made of polyurethane, a polymer that can satisfy any designer’s wishes. However, the latest innovations include lots of sustainable materials like cork, apple peels, pineapple leaves, recycled plastic, etc.
The popularity of vegan leather, alongside the preservation of animals, comes from its varsity. It can be done and tailored in any cut and colored in any shade. It is easy to use, both for clothes and accessories. The term “vegan leather” today appeals to all the fashion lovers and consumers as the best and most suitable alternative to animal skin.
Believe it or not, vegan leather became a trend that is still going strong today. The beginning of 2016, when the self-awareness about the animals, climate and the environment was triggered by actual situations, movements, and conditions, was the time when the world and the fashion saw the need for alternatives. However, some fashion designers, like Stella McCartney might have been ahead of time, somewhere in 2010, when she released a line of handbags featuring fake leather. Today, a great number of fashion designers and retailers have switched to the vegan leather trend, including sustainability and consciousness.
Many markets and fashion researches have pointed out that the term “vegan leather” is mostly used as a new way of branding that luxury labels take on, without compromising on the expected quality and choices.
Whichever the case, vegan leather is much more ethical than the real leather, considering that not only it does not come from the animal skin, but it is produced in ethical factories and plants and comes from sustainable materials and fabrics.
Our Vivacious Vicky handbag is proof that the beauty of the vegan leather comes in all colors, cuts, and shapes.
