We chatted with vegan brand 88 for the latest scoop in vegan fashion. the first thing we wanted to know is, “Why vegan?”. Vegan fashion is loosely described by PETA as “cruetly-free” fashion. In other words, no animals were killed, harmed, or tested on in the manufacturing or production of the product. The idea of “cruelty-free” fashion is admirable. In a world saturated with textiles, prints, and other leather-like materials we were curious about why 88 elected to sell vegan handbags; exclusively.
We wanted to know, “What was it that compelled 88 to form as a vegan leather accessories brand?”… And then we couldn’t help but wonder, “What are some veganism ideas/beliefs/practices that the founder of 88 upholds?”.
The founder of 88 is a life long vegetarian and believes the environment would benefit from the reduction of factory farming. With a background in manufacturing handbags for several brands world-wide, he had the idea to create beautiful affordable bags without having to use animals.
