Vegan Clothing Brands To Follow
1. In The Soulshine
In The Soulshine has a range of many options for your vegan-friendly closet. They offer clothing for women, men, kids, and even have accessories and bags to choose from. They use vegan inks and dyes, which are environmentally available.
Their clothing is proudly made by their Bali-based staff who are treated with respect and love. Their salaries are also above the average wage of a Bali tailor, making it clear that the production house is anything but a sweatshop. The brand prides itself on having a great employee-employer atmosphere because they know the difference it makes in the quality of their products.
Della is a woman-owned and women-run clothing business that works with talented Ghana women in creating one of a kind designs. The company understands business should be done right so they provide opportunities such as jobs and education to their staff. The brand also goes beyond the usual and allows their passionate staff to go through various skills training. Such examples are classes in micro-financing, saving, and entrepreneurship.
The brand’s collection offers a mix of clothing, accessories, and even gadget covers which feature a handmade design with a hint of personality — either through polka dots or snake-like-skin prints.
3. Brave GentleMan
Most brands create products from natural or synthetic materials but Brave GentleMan goes above and beyond and makes their business all about recycling. They use recycled plastic bottles as well as recycled cotton and polyester blends in their clothing items.
By the way, don’t be fooled by the brand’s name. Brave GentleMan is still a unisex brand at the heart of it all. So even women can rock their vegan suits and tops. The brand also has an exceptional future-leather range of accessories which aren’t animal-based. Their leather consists of PU-based microfibre which is biodegradable once placed in a landfill and soil.
Vaute is another vegan clothing brand to add to the admirable list of recyclable-using businesses. They use recycled fibers in their chic weather-proof coats and cozy sweaters. The brand is known for being the world’s first vegan fashion line and is completely against the use of animals in its business. They made the headlines during New York Fashion Week and were dubbed “one of the most innovative businesses in NYC” by BusinessInsider.
Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart, the founder of Vaute, says she was very passionate about animals even as a child. She would call makeup companies about animal testing and participated in campaigns to help save her furry friends. Fast forward to 2008, she set out to create Vaute and has been disrupting the fashion industry ever since.
