Belts

In addition to clothing, outerwear and footwear, many accessories like belts are often found to be made of animal by-products. The great thing is: whether you previously preferred leather, suede, snake skin, crocodile or silk, there are wonderful options that outweigh these "materials" in both unnecessary cruelty to animals and price. Vegan fashion is more than just hemp and bamboo after all—although those are great, too (particularly for sustainability). But today, there are also quality faux leathers, faux reptile, and some cool details and fabrics to trade off into your wardrobe... and who really wants to wear dead animals around their waist anyway?
