Vegan versus fashion

The vegan, trend in food, but now also very present in fashion.

What is vegan in mode:

Since the beginning of the 20th century, more and more influential people in the field of fashion are “coming out”, a social awareness begins to invade the environment. For example, Amélie Pichard (French designer) and Pamela Anderson who released a line of shoes in 2016. Animal materials are less and less in demand, the reason is simple: the planet.

The exploitation of animals for various consumption causes 15% of the greenhouse gases of the planet, whether for food or clothing.

In the fashion industry, we find more and more material excluding 100% animal materials. For example, to eliminate leather in the manufacture of handbags, the major brands use PU (polyurethane). It is a polymer used in the manufacture of several everyday materials (Lycra, windsurfing, car dashboard, head restraints, dining room chair, etc.).

Polyurethane has the advantage of being an extremely durable material, malleable, insulating, waterproof but above all, recyclable. Its environmental benefits are much smaller than other leather alternatives, such as PVC or vinyl.
