What is a vegan winter coat?
A vegan winter coat is simply one that doesn’t contain any animal fibres, such as leather, fur, cashmere or wool.
Instead, they’re made out of vegan materials such as vegan leather, cotton, faux fur, bamboo, viscose etc. Some are even made out of recycled materials!
What is a vegan wool coat? What’s it made out of?
As mentioned above, a vegan coat is one that’s made without animal products, so a vegan wool coat is one made with an alternative to wool. That might be recycled polyester, or an OEKO-Tex certified cotton made to look and drape similarly to wool, like in this coat.
How to choose a vegan coat?
First and most importantly, you need to know what kind of weather conditions you’re going to wear it in. This vegan wool coat, for example, is suitable to withstand temperatures up to -5 C / 23 F.
Perhaps you live in a warmer climate, in which case you’ll actually need a lighter jacket!
You might even need two jackets (as I always had living in the Midwest US) – one lighter coat for autumn/spring and a heavy-duty winter coat suitable for below-freezing temperatures. Or, look for a coat with a removable lining that can be used as a lighter jacket.
Secondly, consider the materials used and go for eco-friendly ones if possible. Buy the best quality you can afford, or better yet buy second hand (eBay is always a great place to pick up deals, or check your local charity shops!), to be more eco-friendly.
Consider what colour and cut you want. Do you want a classic coat like this one that will go with any outfit, a coat like this that will bring a pop of colour or an embroidered coat like this one to catch the eye?
Where to buy vegan coats?
As I mentioned before, it can be tricky finding vegan coats, since most mainstream brands seem to add wool to their blends, not to mention fur or leather trim.
Buying a vegan coat online is usually the easiest option, such as on a vegan shop like Immaculate Vegan.
