Vegan leather is faux leather, often made from polyurethane (PU vegan material), a polymer that can be made to order for any designer’s whim. It can also be made from innovative and sustainable plant leather materials such as cactus, pineapple leaves, cork, apple peels, other fruit waste, and recycled plastic and used to create products that put animal skins to shame.
For example, PETA Business Friend Desserto’s vegan leather is stylish, sustainable, and made of cactus. Yes, you read that correctly!
Desserto makes beautiful vegan leather out of cactus. It is similar to leather but is actually good for the planet, good for animals, and good for your soul.
Of course this is the plant leather material we have chosen to design and make our designer vegan chelsea boots with!
