What is Vegan Leather?
As a collector and distributor for top quality bags, I’ve always had difficulty finding brands that provide vegan, cruelty-free options. Brands which use materials like vegan leather can be exceptionally difficult to find, as the bags need to feel like the real thing and must be durable like real leather. But what exactly is vegan leather made of?
What is Vegan Leather Made of?
Vegan leather is often made from polyurethane, a polymer, as well as sustainable materials like pineapple leaves, cork, recycled plastic and so much more.
Vegan leather has become increasingly popular among fashion accessories like purses, but it is also extremely versatile and has been used for clothing and shoes as well.
Not only is this material extremely fashionable, but it is 100% cruelty-free. Unlike real leather, absolutely no animal byproduct is used.
Our Choice for Vegan Leather
Although there are a variety of different vegan leathers, we choose to carry oil wax vegan leather. Several months ago, I was introduced to this material and I knew I had to carry it in my store. It honestly looks AND feels like the real thing!
I’m so excited to introduce our NEW oil wax vegan leather tote bag, The Sarina! Not only is this bag durable, but it’s lightweight as well.
The bag is available in a multitude of beautiful colors such as merlot, saddle brown, navy, black and sienna, making it the perfect accessory for both fall and winter. It also features a detachable shoulder strap, an exterior pocket and my favorite: an embossed dog and cat joined in love on the back.
As a huge animal lover, I knew I had to give back with this adorable bag. For each bag sold, a portion of the profits will be donated to Cares Cedartown Animal Rescue.
CARES Animal Rescue is a foster-based organization whose focus is saving animals at risk of euthenasia, educating the public on animal care and assisting with low cost sterilization. For more information or to adopt a pup of your own, check out their available pets!
