Vegan leather is a great alternative textile for vegetarians or animal activists. If you want to look fashionable, but not at the expense of our four legged friends, finding handbags made of alternative materials is easy enough.
In fact, vegan leather has been around for a long time. In the past it has been called faux leather or pleather. While there’s not a lot of difference in the various synthetic materials, to be considered vegan the material must not contain animal products or by-products.
