VEGAN DESIGN

WHAT IS VEGAN DESIGN?

A vegan, humane or cruelty-free product is one which does not originate from any living creature, is not an animal byproduct and is not tested on animals.  

A vegan designer offers products, materials and fabrics that do not contain, harm, torture or exploit any conscious living being, human & non, nor harm our planet. Humane alternatives are healthier. Animal skins and hides that are used for furniture are treated with toxic poisons & chemicals that penetrate our skins. Vegan fabrics & products are gentler, cleaner and overall healthier for newborns, babies, children & adults.

Here’s a list of a few materials that are “vegan,” meaning they are manufactured free of any animal parts and cruelty free;

  • cotton

  • microfiber (used a lot on durable sofas, great for families)

  • polyester

  • hemp

  • sisal

  • linen

  • down alternatives(healthier in every way, especially for those who suffer with allergies)

Vegan Alternatives are environmentally friendlier than their animal based counterparts. They rely less heavily on our planets resources & produce less toxins and garbage.
