Our Favourite Vegan Leather Jackets
Whether you’re aiming for biker chic, an effortlessly cool Parisian ensemble or simply wanting to live out your 1960s rocker fantasy; why not do it in vegan-style with one of these faux leather jackets?
Animal products like fur, silk (read this post on vegan silk alternatives here) and leather have dominated the fashion industry for decades but as the world at large turns to more sustainable answers, there are plenty of plant-based options to make a statement with this season.
What is vegan leather?
Faux, or vegan, leather exists in many different forms, be that:
- Pleather (PVC) – close in looks to leather with low production costs
- Plant-based leathers – slightly more pricey due to it being made from natural materials including cacti, pineapples, mushrooms and corn
- Or Bioleather – like the ingenious work at Modern Meadow where they engineered yeast to grow plant-based collagen in order to produce a fully vegan leather
