Sourcing materials is a major part of creating our vegan handbag collections at Sans Beast. With our core mission to use no animal products, we take a look at the range of biobased + manmade materials currently available for non leather handbags, and talk you through some of the issues in selecting the right materials. Cost, minimums, freight + commercial availability are all factors that come into play when we're compiling our wishlist for new collections.
We recently chatted to Sian Murray, co-founder of Pleasant State - the Sunshine Coast based startup, focused on revolutionising the cleaning products space, with earth friendly solutions. They're cruelty free, locally made + incredibly committed to their vision. Read on to learn about this dynamic duo + what they've got planned for getting your home clean, sans toxic chemicals.
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.
