THE CREATIVE JOURNAL

Whether it's for environmental or ethical reasons, more + more people are seeking alternatives to leather in the fashion space.  The term 'vegan leather' has gained in popularity as a result.  What does this mean, what are the options, is it better or worse for the environment?  For Sans Beast, ethics will always be a fundamental element of this conversation - we don't believe animals should suffer for our fashion choices - however for many, it's a bigger conversation around the environment + finite resources, that resonates.  We attempt to offer some insight on this subject in this blog post.

It's Fashion Revolution 2022 week, a global event that was conceptualised after the horror of the Rana Plaza collapse in 2013.  The aim has been to bring attention + respect to workers + the planet.  The movement has gone from strength to strength every year + we are so happy to show you who's behind our bags.  We could not do what we do without our manufacturing partners + this is an ode to them:  the fabric makers, hardware builders + manufacturing teams that bring our collections to life.
