Vegan leather, all you want right?
Vegan leather is hot and happening. Years ago, all the great designers slowly started promoting vegan leather. People don’t know much about it. What exactly is vegan leather and why is it so popular? We had the same questions as you and we were getting more and more curious. We were bold and did some research. This was a very interesting research and we still talk about it. We are very enthusiastic; vegan leather is amazing! Especially now. We decided to design a few special vegan models. We are looking forward to your opinion about the vegan leather. However, first we will explain you more about the vegan leather process.
The term vegan
First of all, what does the word vegan mean? And why the name vegan ‘leather’? leather is not really a vegan product. You can hardly ignore it nowadays. Veganism, also called began for short, is extremely popular. Vegan restaurants are everywhere and a lot of food brands have special vegan products. Veganism (vegan) is a lifestyle that gives up exploitation and cruelty to animals. For example, animals that are used for food and clothing. Vegans follow a plant-based lifestyle. In the beginning the vegan lifestyle wasn’t keeping many people busy. However, we find it interesting to delve further into new worlds and possibilities. Blundstone is a brand that wants to develop continuously. We only work with products of good quality.
The vegan leather process
Vegan; no animals involved. Vegan leather often consists of synthetic materials such as polyester and polyurethane. Nowadays there are also designers who are busy with special hemp leather. Not much is known about this yet. The ‘old’ image of artificial leather is a thing of the past. Vegan leather feels soft and looks like real leather. The material is made of high-quality products and lasts a long time. These points are very important for Blundstone.
The ‘original’ model is the first model within the brand Blundstone that will also be designed as a vegan model. The name original stands for an original pair of high quality Blundstone Chelsea boots. Blundstone has attention for every detail. More than 50 years ago, the original model was designed and produced for the first time. The original model is made on a narrower last than, for example, the classic model. Both models are also the best-selling models within the Blundstone family. In the beginning the original Chelsea boots were worn by people who were working in heavy physical industries. This has quickly made a switch. Nowadays everyone wears the original Chelsea boot model. Police, businessmen and big fashion icons they all wear these beautiful Chelsea boots. Blundstones Chelsea boots are made of smooth leather, nubuck, suede and recently also vegan leather.
