The Truth Behind Leather Goods

What is the price of fashion? Many of us do not look past the price tag and product in front of us but there is so much more we need to consider before we walk over to the till.

This recent video from PETA got me thinking

What are we really buying? Do we really want to give up our hard earned money for something that is ‘real’ when there are other options at a fraction of the price?

Faux leather can look just like real.

Faux suede stands up to weather better than the original.

Reptile skins should be left in the water.

Next time you are looking to add quality pieces to your wardrobe take a look at the tags before you walk to the till many will let you know what materials were used in the construction.

Some brands who provide animal-friendly products include;

  • STELLA MCCARTNEY
  • MELISSA MCCARTHY SEVEN7
  • DR. MARTENS
  • BRAVE GENTLEMAN
  • DELIKATE RAYNE
  • OLSENHAUS
  • ANIMAL BEHAVIOR
  • GUNAS
  • SYDNEY BROWN
  • H&M
  • FOREVER 21
  • FREE PEOPLE
