like vegan food, is any garment made without animal products. Some things may seem obvious (like leather and suede), but vegan materials also exclude anything obtained through animal exploitation. Toad&Co’s vegan clothing avoids materials like silk, fur, feathers, angora, and down. Instead, we make vegan-friendly clothes out of plant-based and man-made fibers. Our vegan clothing is the perfect marriage between ethical clothing practices and eco-friendly apparel. And there is no lack of choice; tons of sustainable and recycled fibers make the cut (lookin’ at you Tencel®). So next time someone asks, “what are vegan clothes?” you can point to your Toad&Co threads and give them the rundown.
Don't take it just from us.
“We’ve seen a surge of high-performing vegan fabrics that are the perfect combination of soft and sustainable. Like other vegan fabrics, organic cotton is easier to clean than wool, faster drying, and softer to the touch. Check out Toad&Co’s Rosemarie Dress, a blend of organic cotton and Tencel.” - PETA
So what fabrics are considered vegan? It’s a lot of information to navigate, but don’t fret - we’re here to help. Take a look at our quick list of fabrics that are vegan versus not vegan. Please keep in mind this is not an exhaustive list, and does not take into account dyes or other fabric treatments - but it is a great place to start.
Choosing sustainability isn't the easy route, it's the only route.
The apparel industry is the fourth largest polluter of air and water on Earth. The solution? Go sustainable, or go nude. Minimizing our environmental impact and helping clean up the apparel industry is an integral part of our business ethos.
