Vegan clothing is made ethically and while recognizing that animals need not be treated cruelly or be made to suffer for human vanity. Recycled or repurposed materials, organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, sustainable wood pulp fibres are some of the viable options for vegan clothing.
Vegan clothes are not just about abstaining from the utilisation of fur – though this may be the most obvious, avoidable and long despised methods of animal cruelty. It is also about avoiding materials such as leather, silk, down, animal feathers and wool.
The idea is to buy or wear nothing that was made by obtaining materials from animals. By definition, “animal product” means an item procured by keeping and breeding animals in captivity, in unnatural, harsh and crowded conditions and subjected to inhumane treatment; and even cruelty.
