Vegan Clothing for Those Who Care 100%

So I am a self confessed wanna be vegan…. I passionately care about the environment, products I use, items I wear yet sadly I can fail on so many accounts when it comes to being 100% vegan. BUT, I am sure many of you will disagree with my concept, that 99% effort is better than no effort at all.
You see being vegan goes right down to checking the products wrapper ingredients and even the method of manufacturing and it is a true challenge to identify where the recyclable carton was manufactured that contains your vegan juice…. so you see my dilemma, maybe you now agree 99% is better than 0%.

Clothing is the first area I looked at when I was considering embarking on my vegan journey, primarily as at that time I owned a up-cycled clothing business where I used to turn pre-loved garments into different items of clothing; for example a wedding dress turned into a corset top, two bed pillows, a lampshade and the lining for a dress. So when I was creating these new items, I noticed that many of my clients who came with up-cycle ideas were handing me ethically sourced clothing and in some cases vegan.

So back to my main reason for this blog post…. to save you some searching on the internet I have listed some items that can boost your wardrobe and start you on your journey towards vegan living.
