Fashion is constantly changing, but sustainability is always in style.  Enter summer’s newest rage: vegan leather. Affectionately known as “pleather,” this faux leather is made using no animal products. Instead, it is created 100 percent from plastic. You might be thinking, “How can this be environmentally friendly?”  Not only is leather not sustainable, but it’s also a processed animal hide with a ton of chemicals.

Vegan leather is more accessible, easier to clean, and more malleable, so you can get a wider range of patterns and colors. It’s water-resistant too, so don’t let any naysayers rain on your parade! Below are three companies that use ethical vegan leather in the creation of their accessories and clothes.


You think good shoes, you think Italian leather.  Well, now you can think Italian luxury vegan leather. Nemanti provides a wide range of styles, from dress shoes to stilettos to even sneakers. All are exquisitely designed with high-quality vegan leather.
