The general conception of being vegan is that you don’t eat animal products, but it is much more than that. When you are vegan you also don’t condone the use of any products that harmed animals in the process of them being made.
This can be difficult for most people, but some of the most common things people use harm animals. None more so than clothing, footwear, and accessories. Some people might even think that going vegan means you have to lose your sense of style, but that is not the case.
One of the easiest changes to make is to start with small things like accessories. It would be ideal if you would just stop using anything that harms animals, but even the smallest step in the right direction is better than nothing. Which is why leaf leather is awesome.
Leaf leather is pretty much what it sounds like, a substitute for leather using leaves. It can be made from all types of leaves including teak and pineapple. One of the best uses we have seen for leaf leather is when making wallets.
I dig a nice sleek wallet, something that is a big change from what most of my adult life has been like. I carried my money in a Batman wallet until I was in my mid-twenties. Now that I am more sophisticated (hardly), and manly (ever since going vegan) man, I love a good wallet.
When going out on a date I can’t whip out the Batman wallet when picking up the tab, it will give away my real identity and my crime-fighting career might be over. It was hard to pick a good looking wallet that I really like that wasn’t leather and then I found these leaf leather wallets. Tell me these bad boys don’t look as good or better than your fashionable leather wallets? If you say they don’t then you sir are a liar!
If you can get great looking products such as these and not have to harm animals, why wouldn’t you?
These wallets are made by Tree Tribe and you can see more about their Leaf Leather products here. You can also check out the video below that explains how they make their leaf leather.
One of the best things about leaf leather is that you don’t have to cut down a tree. So not only are you not harming animals you aren’t destroying our environment.
When you are in the market for a wallet next time, seriously give leaf leather a consideration.
