Sustainable Fashion

Everything you want to know about the sustainability of the textile and fashion industry

Leather has traditionally been used in a wide range of products similar to those used with textiles, including clothing, shoes and furniture. Unfortunately, the steps involved in its overall lifecycle, such as tanning during production, use many toxic chemicals, and there has been much emphasis on the need for less harmful, non-animal sourced alternatives. Various forms of artificial leathers have been emerging as better alternatives to answer this call; however, many of these alternatives are made of plastic and continue to have harmful impacts on human health and the environment.

Leather Alternatives

Leather alternatives represent a new frontier in sustainable fashion, where innovation is breeding creative solutions to the environmental concerns produced by one of the most notorious textiles in the fashion industry.
