These are the most frequently asked questions about vegan leather jackets:
Vegan coats can be made from many kinds of textiles – vegan biker jackets can incorporate plant-based materials such as apple leather and pineapple leather. You’ll also find faux fur jackets and waterproof coats that can be made from recycled polyester. Most vegan coats do use a small amount of polyurethane to bond the materials together but is much more sustainable than animal-based materials like fur or leather.
Vegan jackets are ones that are 100% free from animal-based products such as leather, fur, wool, feathers, and down, to name a few. The most well-known types of vegan jackets are faux furs, vegan leather jackets (which can be made from plant-based materials) and vegan waterproof jackets and raincoats (often made from recycled fibres).
Vegan leather, like animal-based leathers, can take a few hours to dry after a heavy downpour. They can be patted down with an absorbent cloth to make them dry quicker.
Vegan leather can last a very long time with the right care. It is often made from plant-based materials such as cactus, which is generally a very hardy plant, but also other plant products like apple, grape, corn and cork to name a few. However, as with most things including both vegan and animal-derived leather, quality varies and it's important to choose the right brand – we aim to offer high-quality products from premium brands that focus on slow fashion, meaning that the product is made to last.
