Vegan leather jackets FAQ

What are vegan leather jackets made of?

Vegan leather jackets are made from vegan leather, rather than animal leather, and are free from all animal products (including filling like down).

Most often they are made out of polyurethane or PU leather, but some such as Sentient jackets from other vegan leathers like cactus leather.

Both are innovative and sustainable new materials made from the leftover waste from the food industry.

  1. Hello. I love your website and all your info. James&Co is an Australian brand that is worth a look (I would say that because it’s my brand!). We started as purely vegan leather jackets then accessories in 2012, then in 2018 we ditched the polyurethane used to make vegan leather because of its toxicity and used more sustainable waterbased PU and partially plant-based textiles (cactus, apple etc). Then in 2022 we ended those textiles also because they all contain plastic to some degree and now transitioning all leather-look products to 100% plantbased vegan leather MIRUM®. Starting with a bag collection. Love feedback and comments. Anne
