Ok, wtf is vegan leather

Recommended Posts

I'm sure it is just leather not made from cows....I'll accept that.... it's pleather

But who the fuck is eating it for it to be called vegan.  

I guess I just assumed vegan meant it was eaten or drank in some way.....but if I buy a fake fur....is it vegan fur?

I hate this name and it's stupid

Being vegan doesn't just refer to the vegan diet. It means not engaging in the consumption of products built on animal exploitation, such as wearing leather.

Vegan leather is probably the same material that fake leather was always made from.  Vegan’s are opposed to any animal exploitation it’s not just a diet, it’s a way of life and philosophy

Ooh, so I can get a nab's skin coat.

And when they say it's dry clean only, I'll say it was the same when he was alive.

The smell of that coat alone would kill you.

 I would be concerned more with the smell of those feet after being inside unbreathable shoes for so long 😬

Can we just all agree it’s made from vegans?

The hydes of many a nauga have been sacrificed for fashion. 

And then some knob decided to remarket everything as 'vegan leather' . 

My miniskirt was not vegan. It was made of the rarest of creatures - the dalmatian spotted nauga.

I think it’s a rebranding of synthetic leather or pleather.

Because it’s not made from real animal, it’s technically vegan, so it’s supposed to make people feel good for supporting vegan leather. But in reality, they’re actually buying rebranded flea market handbags.

Way before the pandemic, I found this little collection of cow hides in IKEA and I was like .... oh fuck thats a lot of dead cows to just throw on somebody's floor as a rug 

 

But then I was like..... cows get slaughtered every day for meat so .... is the cow hide economical in that you're not throwing pieces of dead cow away ... or are these separate rug cows that get slaughtered
