Vegan Shoes Just Walked In, Goodbye Jimmy Choo!
Vegan shoes?! Yes please!
The growth of veganism is no secret, and the number of vegan products on the market has exploded in recent months. Companies producing everything from food, cosmetics, and now even fashion are all jumping on the vegan bandwagon and according to global research, it’s going to be the major trend for 2018, especially in the fashion sector.
This comes as fantastic news to animal lovers all over the world, who would rather not see more than a billion animals killed each year for fashion. With the increase in popularity of vegan fabrics such, as faux leather, suede, and silks, entrepreneurs are stepping in to fill the void in cruelty-free fashion and creating a huge market. They are showing that cruelty-free, sustainable fabrics don’t have to be boring old canvas shoes or cheap sandals anymore.
A pioneer in this field is Rebecca Mink from Los Angeles, the founder of Mink Shoes. She started out in the fashion industry as a model, stylist, and designer. It was during this time that she noticed a serious lack of vegan shoes in the luxury market. She set off for Italy, with sketches in hand to try and find the perfect artisan who could help her bring her dream to life. After being turned away from sixteen factories she vowed not to give up and we sure are glad she didn’t.
Rebecca has passionately worked on her dream for over a decade and is determined to change the way people view vegan shoes in the luxury market. Mink Shoes are produced in the same factories that create prized Italian designs such as Christian Louboutin, Chanel and Jimmy Choo, all without harming animals or the planet. They are eco-friendly, free from animal products and assembled using materials from sustainable sources such as wood, cork, bamboo, non-animal glue, organic and recycled fabrics. Her vegan shoes have been tested and have stood up well against the competition made from traditional fabrics.
Rebecca is among a new wave of vegan designers who are working to change the way people view traditional fabrics.
