What is Vegan Design?

A vegan or cruelty-free product is one which does not originate from any living creature, is not an animal byproduct and is not tested on animals.  A vegan designer offers products, materials and fabrics that do not contain, harm, torture or exploit any conscious living being, human and non. 

Vegan alternatives are healthier. Animal skins and hides that are used for furniture are treated with toxic poisons & chemicals that penetrate our skins. Vegan fabrics and products are gentler, cleaner and overall healthier for newborns, babies, children & adults.

[Fur is] not relevant, it’s not sexy, it’s not fashionable, and it’s not cool.
— Stella McCartney, Designer & Activist

One of the many misconceptions that society has regarding animal skin, fur & feathers is that they are luxurious. There is nothing beautiful or sexy about wearing a coat made out of 60 tortured & electrocuted chinchillas or sitting on a couch made out of 8 beaten & slaughtered baby cows. We live in an amazing time in which technology allows for the production of beautiful, innovative and truly fabulous materials and fabrics that are not made of living creatures & do not contain poisons that are lethal to the workers in tanneries and the end user – you!

Vegan Is The New Black!

There is a growing demand from consumers worldwide to put an end to animal testing, animal derived products and healthier alternatives to enhance our well being. The community of socially conscious & health driven shoppers is only growing stronger, urging more and more businesses to offer vegan alternatives!

Vegan design acknowledges that all living creatures have emotions, feelings and should not be sacrificed or abused for society's idea of luxury.

Do you think using furs today is still modern? I don’t think it’s still modern and that’s the reason [Gucci decided to stop using fur .] It’s...out-dated.
— Marco Bizzarri, CEO of Gucci

The vegan design movement is growing at an exponential rate and we are so thrilled that you are taking a step towards saving the lives of all living creatures human & non and transforming the world.
