Free People’s Vegan Leather Line

This month, bohemian clothier Free People launches a new line of cruelty-free faux-leather items.


Clothing company Free People has debuted a collection of vegan leather items for those who crave a rock ‘n’ roll look without the use of animal products. Among the new items are a hooded jacket, a pleated skirt, skinny pants, and zippered shorts. The company blog features a video with several vegetarian employees of the company explaining that they created the line to achieve the look of traditional leather without compromising their cruelty-free values. “My love of fashion and being vegetarian sometimes fight each other,” one employee says. “…It’s something that I see wearing all year round, and feeling really great, and knowing that it also helps support things that I believe in, and I’m passionate about.”
