For many people, veganism is still related only to food. However, there is much more behind it. A vegan lifestyle does not exclude only products of animal origin from the diet but also avoids any form of exploitation or animal abuse, including those related to clothing production. Vegan fashion is characterized by its deep ethical commitment and cruelty-free character.

For a garment to be vegan, animal products or by-products must be avoided throughout the production process. Therefore, fashion articles made of leather or wool cannot be considered vegan even if they come from organic animal farms.

In recent years, veganism has become increasingly popular, partly because it is in vogue, but also because many people are becoming aware of our relationship with animals and how we want to treat and use them—or not use them—to meet our needs. More and more people are looking to buy vegan-certified clothing when shopping, a trend that has been expanding for some time in the cosmetics industry and that is now growing rapidly in footwear and accessories. Vegan Fashion Week, an internationally recognized biannual event featuring vegan brands, has recently taken place in Los Angeles.

If you are interested in learning more about cruelty-free fashion and adopting a vegan way of life, we recommend looking for PETA-approved and GOTS-certified apparel, as well as fabrics such as lab-grown silk or novel alternatives to leather such as Piñatex.
