You may have heard of ‘faux leather’, a material that mimics the look of leather without harming any animals. However, the up and coming phrase these days seems to be “vegan” leather. While these leathers may sound different, the reality is faux leather and vegan leather are actually the same thing.

What is vegan leather exactly? Going beyond the understanding that vegan leather is a substitute for animal leather, more often than not, vegan leather is created with polymers like polyurethane (PU) or polyvinyl chloride (PVC). These synthetic leathers can be found in a wide variety of fashions from shoes to handbags to jackets and almost everything in between. When shopping for vegan leather, try to buy fashions made from PU instead of PVC, as PU is a bit friendlier toward the environment because it’s more biodegradable.

 

The benefits of vegan leather are a big-win for animal rights activists. Authentic leather is produced using animal rawhides and skins. According to PETA (The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), billions of animals are killed specifically for textile manufacturing purposes every single year.1 While counter-arguments sometimes state that vegan leathers can be environmentally harsh, real leather is not fully biodegradable either. Just ask an archaeologist, and they will tell you they still find animal leathers that are thousands of years old.

 

Even if animal rights don’t particularly suit the causes you typically support, vegan leather also has the benefit of versatility. It can be created to suit many styles ranging from matte to shiny finishes. It’s also easy to care for; simply soften with a dab of vinyl conditioner and a dry cloth then you’re done! Leading designers around the globe have built entire collections around vegan leather because it’s incredibly fashion-forward. At Sole Society, some of our favorite clutches and handbags are built using beautiful vegan leather, too.

 

And yes, we are aware that there is some controversy surrounding vegan leather, but we also believe that having multiple selections allows for greater sustainability. An excess of one thing (such as only leather or only vegan leather) can have a much larger impact on our precious environment, so having different styles to choose from is always a good thing in our book!

 

Fall is the season for slouchy beanies, knit scarves, and everything cozy. Just because it’s sweater weather doesn’t mean you have to be buried in shapeless knits all season.

d.RA is for women who like to dress up without feeling overdressed. Try their flirty Mai sweater with a ruffle peplum for an elegant twist on a cozy knit.

Don’t get lost in a sea of standard crewnecks this fall. Sweater season opens up endless possibilities to build a unique, on-trend look. Whether you want a rustic finish or a clean, modern edge, there’s a cozy knit perfect for your one-of-a-kind taste.
