The World Vegan Month Edit

Posted on November 14, 2014 by Noorin Khamisani | 0 comments

November is World Vegan Month. It starts with World Vegan Day on the first of the month, a day which celebrates the founding of the world’s first Vegan Society 1944.

The word ‘vegan’ was chosen by founder Donald Watson and his ‘non-dairy vegetarians’ to describe their diet.  Watson took the first and last two letters of ‘vegetarian’ to create this new word.

To show our support for our vegan customers we have created this vegan edit of our styles.  

Vegan fashion is clothing and accessories made from cruelty-free sources, i.e. no animal products were used in making the garments and no animals were harmed.  

This usually means encouraging the use of synthetic fibres which we are not fans of because they use petrochemicals in their production and will not biodegrade at the end of their life. However, our edit is focussed on our gorgeous bamboo, organic cotton and tencel styles which are both vegan friendly pieces as well as being natural sustainable fibres.











Firstly we have pieces made from a luxurious blend of bamboo and organic cotton. The versatile Batwing Tunic dress is perfect for layering from season to season and our leggings are great for the gym or the school run.

Then we have a great dress to take you from desk to dinner. Check out our Tencel Victory Dress, featured by the fab Vilda magazine in their Ultimate Vegan Capsule Wardrobe.  Tercel, also known as lyocell, is fibre made with wood pulp from sustainable tree farms in an award-winning closed-loop process that recovers or decomposes all solvents and emissions.  It is breathable and silky to the touch but is also completely biodegradable.

And last, but not least, vegan fashionista's could snap up one of the last few pairs of Satin Detail Trousers in recycled denim.    
We hope that has given our vegan and non-vegan fans some ideas!   To find out more about an animal cruelty-free lifestyle we recommend Vilda magazine.
