Year after year, the fall season ushers in the beginning of autumn fashion. Occasionally, there are new trends to try out in your wardrobe, but a few trends return to prominence every fall. One such trend is leather. Leather blazers, jackets, bags, and other goods become the norm from the runway to the sidewalks in your community. However, this year, we’re celebrating a new type of leather in fall fashion: vegan leather.
Vegan bags are everywhere now, and for good reason: vegan leather is often easier to clean, conflict-free, and can look just as chic. If you’re curious about this new vegan leather purse and accessory trend, here’s what you should know.
What is Vegan Leather?
Vegan leather isn’t leather at all—hence it being vegan. It’s made of polyurethane, a highly customizable and manipulatable polymer which can take numerous shapes, from vegan crossbody bags to vegan diaper bags to vegan luggage.
While vegan leather isn’t real leather, it looks extremely similar and can take on many of the same styles. Plus, it’s often less expensive than real leather and is conflict-free for vegans, animal lovers, and environmental activists.
We’re happy to say that we have made the shift to producing handbags exclusively with vegan leather and non leather substitutes.
What are the Most Popular Non-Leather Substitutes?
While vegan leather, also called faux leather, is typically made of a polyurethane material, there are other non-leather substitutes that are stylish, unique, affordable, and safe for the environment.
We produce high-quality, fashionable purses and bags with numerous different non-leather substitutes including vegan leather. In fact, none of our bags are made with real leather.
Our most popular non-leather substitute materials are traditional vegan leathers, nylon materials, and vinyl materials. All of these non-leather bags are just as chic, trendy, and functional as their leather counterparts. Plus, some of our bags are machine washable, and all come in at a more affordable price tag than real leather bags.
The Benefits of Vegan Handbags
There are numerous benefits of vegan leather handbags as opposed to traditional leather. One of the foremost benefits is that vegan leather purses are animal-friendly, because they do not use actual animal products in their production. This makes them a more sustainable and animal-friendly choice for vegans and non-vegans alike.
Additionally, the harsh chemical treatments that real leather bags undergo can bedetrimental to the environment, whereas the vegan leather production process is more environmentally friendly.
Vegan leather has also been known to hold up better, especially in rain and inclement weather, which can damage real leathers.
One last benefit of this vegan alternative to leather is that it is much more affordable, meaning that vegan leather handbags and other goods are more accessible to all who enjoy chic fashion accessories, not just those with extra disposable income.
Lastly, vegan leather is just as fashionable as traditional leather, and is just as versatile.
