WHAT IS VEGAN DESIGN?
A vegan, humane, or cruelty-free product is one that 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;
- microfiber (used a lot on durable sofas, great for families)
- 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 the resources of our planet & produce less toxins and garbage.
