Top 10 leather alternatives you need to know in eco fashion

Leather has been around since the dawn of humanity, sheltering our ancestors from inclement weather and providing cozy shelters. Fast forward thousands of years, and we are still raising animals for dairy, meat, and wool. Not only that though – half of leather produced today makes up our shoes, 25% – clothing, and 15% – upholstery. A capsule wardrobe is a marriage of two things. First is a Base wardrobe – a collection of a few (up to 30) essential items of clothing that are classic in style and color that do not go out of style. The second is an Accent wardrobe – all the fun stuff that makes up your unique style – from red lace dresses, oversized plaid jackets, embroidered jeans, leopard tops, to Gothic Victorian blouses and pink joggers.

None other than the mountain of Amazon boxes towering behind her. Here I am, the sustainability champion, and there’s the evidence, loud and clear – my not-so-green secret. Cue the guilt trip, right? But wait, it’s not because I’m a total eco-fail or a shopaholic.

Ever wondered why we’re all turning into shopping pros these days? From the latest gadgets to those “can’t resist” outfits, that “Add to cart” button is like a magnet. But here’s the kicker: it’s not just us, the shoppers, who should take the heat.
