Round-Up of PVC-Free Vegan Leather Products

If you missed my last post about the ethical and environmental concerns of both animal-derived and vegan leather, stop what you’re doing and read that first. I talked about the two most common vegan leather alternatives- one is made from PVC and one is made from PU (polyurethane), the former being one of the most polluting materials made by man. Unfortunately, PVC has made its way into a lot of vegan fashions, posing a threat to the health of both you and to the environment.
I have rounded up some brands who make vegan products without the use of PVC. Some, like Matt & Nat and Wilby, use PVC in some of their collections but not in others. I’ve made sure to identify which collections are safe.
