The International Vegetarian Union defines veganism in two ways. First, it is a way of living to exclude all forms of cruelty and exploitation of all animals as sources of food and clothing. The other definition is that it is a dietary practice of completely staying away from animal produce like meat, fish, poultry, animal milk, and its derivatives.
At Velvety, we are constantly on the lookout for beautiful alternative materials to leather and other unsustainable materials such as plastic. These substances are unnatural, cause harm and death and poison our earth.
That’s why we were excited to discover cork. Not only does it look fantastic and last a long time, but unlike leather, plastic or microfiber, cork is 100% sustainable and environmentally friendly.
