As consumers become increasingly conscious of their fashion choices, the industry is scrambling to switch to more animal-free and vegan leather to retain their share in the quickly shifting market.
According to a recent report, the global vegan leather sector will balloon to US$89 billion by 2025, with the majority of the growth led by Asia-Pacific. But it isn’t just animal welfare that brands have to consider – consumers are now demanding sustainable alternatives too, which means that decades of using petroleum-based plastic superficial leathers are now out of fashion, while emerging new plant-based leathers are in.
Pinogreen is one of the natural vegan leather supplier that emerged as an alternative to PU and PVC, which are plastic and petroleum-based alternatives widely used in animal-free products.
Our pineapple leather is a perfect alternative to substitute for cattle, sheep, pig or goat skin. It’s vegan leather! Every year we produce about 10,000 yards of vegan leather, which means more than 15,000 innocent animals have been saved from being skinned.
Moreover the manufacturing process of vegan leather is much more eco-friendly than those in creating animal leather. Plant cellulose is much simpler to work with than the animal proteins in composition and treatment.
