Now that technology is so advanced and vegan leather looks and feels so realistic these days, there really is no more need for animal based leather! Vegan leather is not only more sustainable and better for the planet in so many ways, but it’s also the cruelty free and compassionate choice. So hopefully this list of vegan leather bag brands to check out will give you some ideas on where to shop for your next bag purchase!
Keep reading to find out what brands I’m talking about, as well as a little bit of information about why you should choose leather alternatives!
Why Choose Vegan Leather?
There are so many different reasons to choose vegan leather bags over animal based leather products. But essentially, it boils down to a couple of things: ethicality and sustainability.
On the first point, if you have never seen behind the scenes footage of what happens in an animal slaughterhouse (where leather comes from) I would definitely recommend you go over to YouTube and check out some videos, because it’s shocking, disgusting and legitimately horrific what goes down.
So with that being said, vegan leather is for sure the compassionate choice that directly helps innocent animals by decreasing demand for animal based products. There is no need to buy products made from animal leather – it’s like your cat or dog being made into a bag. Literally no way to justify it or make sense of it whatsoever.
Second, animal agriculture is responsible for a LOT of carbon emissions and is ruining a lot of our natural environment in a big way. Vegan leather is the more sustainable option, so when you buy it you are also doing something great for the planet!
