Why real leather is better and more sustainable than vegan leather?
I tend to love real leather, but being a vegetarian myself, I had a moral issue with using leather. So, I started researching what kind of leather I could use for my work without harming animals and what I found entirely changed my perspective on leather. Once an animal has already been killed to produce food, its skin is merely a waste product that would be thrown away and therefore wasted. By using it, we are using the whole animal and not wasting this important resource. My moral issue was resolved, but myths about leather are strongly rooted in our culture, and that is why I seek to clarify this misconception. If anyone calls you Cruella Deville because of your leather purse, now you know the truth about how I source my leather!
