Vegan fashion – not what you thought

Many places around the globe are well aware of global warming and some of us are even worried about the consequences it will have on many areas of our lives and the lives of our children, already in the coming years.

If the subject sounds futuristic to you, you will be surprised to hear that simple actions can change the situation from end to end. It does not even require much effort or drastic change of habits. It mostly involves awareness.

Take the field of fashion for example. Most of us choose a garment based on considerations like price, appearance, comfort and image. And if we tell you that in the power of one more consideration and simply to drive global processes that will change the fashion culture and contribute to a healthier and better world, would not you be intrigued?

In the manufacturing processes of clothing and footwear details many animal ingredients are used that cause damage (direct or cumulative) to animals. The familiar extreme examples of wearing animal fur or leather clothing illustrate the most extreme cruel aspect.

“Vegan fashion” refers to clothing and footwear items that do not contain animal ingredients. Not only killing animals causes them suffering and sometimes direct or indirect harm is created. This is answered by the term CRUELTY-FREE (without cruelty).

The following cycle refers to processes that create ecological changes. The answer is in a trend called “sustainable fashion” which advocates that the fashion industry be vegan, without cruelty and in addition maintain the environment and high social standards.

So that each of us can make small and very significant choices and make our world better and more compassionate right now.

A trend that started from a “crazy to talk” minority and environmental activists, has gained momentum and now more and more brands are joining the “VEGAN FRIENDLY” trend out of an understanding of the responsibility placed on their shoulders and identifying an opportunity to do things right in a global perspective and give them a commercial advantage. Indeed earn it honestly.

What makes a product “VEGAN FRIENDLY”?
Vegan products are products that * do not make any use * of animal materials in the production of the products.

  • There is no use of animal ingredients in the products.
  • No animal testing is performed at any stage of product development and production (“cruelty-free”).
  • There is no indirect damage to animals at any stage of product development, production and transportation.

Why are we telling you this right now?
Great question! Spring is here and summer is another second with us. This is the perfect time to talk about the right choices when it comes to the new clothing and footwear items that will accompany us this year.

Most important in the summer – flip-flops
We understood the humane advantage of vegan flip-flops. What are the benefits in terms of material properties?

  • Effect of moisture, water and salt – Most sandals and rubber slippers and those made of foamed silicone live in peace with moisture, humidity and salt and can dip and stay near water sources without being damaged.
  • Buoyancy – The buoyancy of the vegan flip-flop reduces the chance of it sinking in the water and getting lost.
  • flexibility – The vegan flip-flop is flexible and able to retain its original shape perfectly.
  • Tread comfort – The vegan ingredients are whipped and naturally their texture is bouncy and springy.
  • Weight – The vegan ingredients are light and therefore very comfortable to walk, especially in the hot and hot Israeli summer conditions.
  • Easy to clean – The synthetic materials are very easy to maintain and clean.
  • Stain resistance – Vegan flip-flops and sandals are less sensitive to contact with materials and are therefore very resistant to stains.
  • Durability over time – Vegan ingredients are durable and last longer than animal ingredients that are vulnerable and sensitive.
  • price – Most synthetic products are significantly cheaper than most leather products.

“Among women the hot fashion trend of the summer is flat sandals andSlippers In a huge variety of patterns and designs. “Explains Johnny Elbaz from the footwear brand Ipanema” Whether you like the sandals with the intersecting straps or the X sandals, a sandal with curled straps or rope-like straps, this year you can vary colors and embellishments according to mood and personal preferences. “

Can’t wait any longer? Go for it.

It’s not summer without a cool bag
The bags are our good friends, especially in the summer when we aim for a cool summer “Total Look”. As mentioned, a vegan bag is made without animal ingredients from the outer shell to the glue. But it is clear that not all cases are like that.

How do you know if a bag is vegan or not?
It is important to conduct market research and find out details about the brand. Some brands use relevant labels, but the business is still not institutionalized and common enough. So, try to read about products and understand what agenda they support and what they tell about their products.

We found quite a few declared vegan bags, including a nice selection of bags for the day and also one for evening bags, each with a unique design and a different style. It must be noted that we fell in love.

Belts – a perfect combination of practice and beauty
A belt is a super fashionable and trendy accessory and it adds color and interest to summer clothes. We see it as a means to diversify the overall look and support an approach of matching the belt to the sandals to produce a summery and light overall chic.

Admit that the selection of vegan belts on the market is still limited, especially in physical stores.

So here’s an important tip: Search the web. Whether you are interested in purchasing online or accessing a physical store, do a preliminary research and find out where you can purchase, what the prices are and what the models look like. Thank us later.

So the world is warming up, the Israeli summer is steaming and the vegan fashion trend is hot.

Be aware of the variety of choices available to you and remember that when you decide to choose vegan and contemporary fashion items, you will achieve three goals in one: a devastating look, maximum comfort and a clear conscience.
