Vegan Fashion: Choosing Alternatives to Animal Materials in Clothing

Ever since the textile and fashion industry has been around, it has seen the widespread use of animal-derived materials such as wool, silk and leather in its products. However, using these materials has led to cruel and wasteful exploitation of these animals and the destruction of their habitats.

It also plays a major role in climate change and in polluting our atmosphere and water bodies. Thankfully, a growing number of brands and consumers are adopting cruelty-free alternative materials that are natural, versatile and long-lasting. Let’s take a closer look at the use of animal materials in fashion and their vegan and eco-friendly alternatives.
