In the world of fashion, leather is still a very popular material. But not everyone wants to have leather in their closet. We have gone from a time when real fur was all the rage, and everyone who was anyone had a mink stole, to finding man-made options which can reproduce the look and feel of luxury without harming any animals. Leather clothes and accessories are also seeing a similar shift, with man-made, faux, or as the new buzz word calls it, vegan materials replacing the real McCoy.
When you hear the term vegan, most likely you think of a specific diet which omits any meat, dairy or egg products. But there is more to being vegan than just food. A vegan approach takes all animal products into consideration, searching for non-animal alternatives. Many fashion designers are listening to consumers who are seeking solutions to classic fashion styles and elements. Vegan Fashion gives the look and feel of leather and luxury, at a lower cost, and without harming any animals; these are clothes and accessories with a conscience.
Western-style fashion may have embraced leather for generations, but that doesn’t
mean a socially conscious cowgirl can’t find alternatives. At West Coast Cowgirl, we have you covered, especially when it comes to handbags and purses. Yes, we need a practical carry-all for our essentials, but there is nothing that says your handbag can’t have style, enhance your outfit or make a statement all its own.
Western-style handbags come in a variety of materials, and make a great fashion statement themselves. Vegan bags are a wonderful solution for the look and feel of leather, while being animal-friendly too. I invite you to check out our products at West Coast Cowgirl, where you can find a variety of jewelry at our website. Whether you are looking for a gift for that special someone or ready to treat yourself to something new, products are added regularly so be sure to check back often.
