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 Altiir jackets are made from other vegan leathers like pineapple leather, an innovative and sustainable new material made from the leftover waste from the pineapple industry.
Where can I buy a vegan leather jacket?
You can often find faux leather jackets in clothing stores (check the labels to see what they're made out of), but the internet offers a lot more options, including buying from vegan and sustainable brands who will ensure it's a wholly vegan jacket.
