How to Dress Vegan

Choose to become vegans is a real choice of life and philosophy of thought that lead as a direct result not only not to eat anything that is guilty of “violence against nature”, but ( dare I say especially ) to make decisions 360° cruelty free.

This means, for example thinking to clothing ( element “fundamental” of our lives with food ), avoid materials such as leather, wool, silk, feathers and more.
in Italy they are beginning to arise in big cities first shops of the trendy 100% vegan and these also come the first specialized brands in clothing 100% vegan.

What are the rules and how to tell if a piece of clothing is really  cruelty free?

Which products to avoid

LEATHER and FUR

Of course the first product to be not even consider is the skin.
Everything is done with the skin is believed to be made ​​from real animal tissues, in most cases of cattle.
One would think that those animals were not killed only to use their skin, but, as might be the case, the farmer also receives a lot of money from the sale of this “part” of the animal and therefore should not be fed in any way that aspect.

Then we must also pay attention to all the different finishes that can be found in the jackets, on the shirts etc… not to mention shoes, bags etc …

Regarding the fur, well, those now should avoid them independently of the choice to be vegan or not: many animals are bred with the only purpose to be skinned for their valuable fur and too many ( if only one would be already too… ) are skinned alive.

FEATHER AND GOOSE DOWN

As the feather and goose down duvet grow back and do not require the killing of the bird, the industrial-grade production is particularly troubled by these birds. Immobilized and often sedated, their feathers are torn with violence, so much so that, after the procedure, it does not happen often that their body is full of wounds as it happens that many die from the stress suffered.

PEARLS

Although the mollusk is not killed, and it seems that the process is painless, it is still the exploitation of a living being and that’s why most of the world’s vegan avoids what for many is considered “valuable material”.

And WOOL FELT

Also in relation to this material today would be worth putting more attention regardless of vegan choices: although the animals are not killed but shorn, criticizing poor conditions in which sheep would be forced to live, especially in factory farms.
The rhythms of large production mean that the shearing does not take place with more patience and the typical cure of the tradition, but with the special machines which provide for the immobilization of sheep, sometimes with methods of momentary stunning as the electric shock.

The felt should be eliminated because it often contains wool and fur.

ARROW

Another point to ponder in a general sense: the silk is obtained from silkworm ( obviously ), but the point is this: the farmers to make the most of their production to prevent bugs to get out of the cocoon, once their first evolutionary phase.

The specimens are then burned in special furnaces when no longer needed.

How to tell if a piece of clothing is cruelty free

As for the shoes, or anything that might contain skin, be careful and check if the label is the classic symbol of animal skin, if there is, you should not buy! A kind of grid dashes indicates textiles and synthetic materials. A diamond indicates the rubber or other materials but not animals. If all 3 symbols are diamond or grid, we can buy the shoe, making sure only that there are no parts in wool ( wool is considered a tissue, then symbolized the grid ).

Search for any leather parts remains still a delicate point because today the law requires that a product should contain information 80% of it is made ​​of material, the remainder has no obligation to be specified.
For other materials… must read well the labels just as you do for the food.

alternative materials

In place of the skin can be considered the alcantara or synthetic materials such as lorica.

In place of the wool you can choose the chenille, velvet and synthetic fleece.

In place of the duvet padding is used for example Fibrefil.

In place of the silk vegetable or synthetic alternatives like viscose.
