Sustainable Vegan Textiles You Should Know About

19 Comments

  1. Hi,
    Your article is an interesting read for Vegan people.
    I would love to hear your opinion on Bemberg fiber as a Vegan Textile.

  2. Great article! Thank you for your insights. I was just wondering whether you came across some sustainable fabric as an alternative to nylon for tights/pantyhose?

    1. Hi Anna, sorry just saw your comment. We personally, love the brand Bhumi, as they have a range of sustainable sourced organic cotton products including tights/leggings etc. Google them to see if their products are a good fit for you.

  3. hello! i make dolls, & was curious- you say here that soysilk can cause cancer. is this the same as soy fiber (similar to silk)?? i don’t want to buy it for doll hair, if that’s the case. thanks!

  4. Vegan fibers? Not sure why the division of plant/animal fibers are necessary. Animal fibers are grown humanely and sustainably and offer amazing diverse fibers without the use of chemicals or solvents. Check out Fiber Shed for more information.

  5. Hello Summer, thanks for a very interesting and informative article, and the link to your publication (downloaded and part-way through reading!). I’m compiling some ‘scores’ on textiles for a few talks and a journal article – I’d never heard of Peace Silk, so decided to try and find out more. I found this http://www.wormspit.com/peacesilk.htm with a few reasons why it might not be vegan-friendly. Any views?
    kind regards
    Catherine

  6. Love this post! I was wondering though, where the heck do you buy shoes?! I’ve been trying to find boots and it seems impossible to find quality vegan shoes that aren’t totally plastic. I don’t even care if they are expensive, I just want something I can feel good about purchasing. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Haley, we’re just catching up on comments from this post. We can relate to your struggles when it comes to finding quality vegan boots which are not made from plastic. To be honest, we don’t have an answer, as the technology is not quite there yet. We’ll be publishing a post in the coming weeks breaking down vegan leather, which may re-open up the conversation with Eco-Certified PU as a viable material.

  7. Thank you for a really informative article. Great read and a fantastic starting point for more research for me.

  8. Such an informative article! I was excited to learn about the pineapple textiles. So cool! I’m a sustainable fashion blogger bringing the style to sustainable fashion. I love how this industry is growing and the innovations being made.
