VEGAN COATS TO KEEP YOU WARM THIS WINTER
As a vegan fashion blogger, one of my biggest challenges is finding vegan coats. You know the drill – 2% of wool that you didn’t expect, down feathers mixed with synthetic ones, and of course finding materials such as alpaca, cashmere, silk and other animal-derived textiles in every coat that you love.
I feel you, it’s very difficult to find options that fit both your ethics and style! But thankfully, more and more companies are meeting this demand and I’ve gathered my top five favourite brands to keep you warm and cosy this winter.
Probably the most well-known company in terms of vegan coats, New-York company Vaute uses 100% vegan and cruelty-free materials, recycled fibers and high-tech to create their beautiful designs. Offering dressy, snow-proof, waxed, mens and unisex coats, this is a must for someone who is new to the vegan game and is looking to invest in their first vegan coat to last many years.
Exclusively for women, this French vegan brand has ventured itself in the coat market since May this year and they’ve gotten a great deal of attention. Suitable for any shape or size, Magnethik offers classic tailored coats with colours such as grey, black and oatmeal. Watch this space for more models coming soon!
