WHAT IS VEGAN LEATHER?
Vegan leather, known like artificial leather and also called synthetic leather, is a material intended to substitute for leather.
Vegan leather is often made from polyurethane, a polymer that can be made to order for any designer's whim. It can also be made from innovative and sustainable materials such as pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic and used to create products that put animal skins to shame.
WHAT DOES VEGAN LEATHER LOOK LIKE?
Vegan leather -focusing on good quality vegan leather like Dauntless NYC or Blanc Noir USA -there isn’t that much difference to real leather. However, as vegan leather is synthetic, it doesn’t form a patina like real leather does when ageing and it is much less breathable as the pores that are printed onto the surface of pleather are artificial.
WHY I SHOULD BUY A VEGAN LEATHER JACKET?
- Vegan leather is cruelty free – no animals were hurt in the process.
- There's been no toxic tanning process.
- Vegan leather (also known as pleather) is quite affordable.
- Vegan leather can be made in some qualities and colours leather can't provide.
Personally, we have two favorite brands that have beautiful vegan leather jackets and coats: Blanc Noir, who does Sleeve Panel jackets and bombers, and Dauntless NYC, who does recycled synthetic vegan leather. We have them available online, and -OMG!- the fabrics are indeed cute.
