Leather Free Clothing

There is no reason to wear the skin of a dead cow or any animal, when there are so many alternatives!

If you don’t know already, find out what’s so wrong with leather.

At ALV, we are against all forms of exploitation. For this reason, the vegan products listed here are all made ethically, considering the well being of those who made them. Products manufactured ethically are more expensive, because people are being paid a fair wage.

Keep scrolling too, to see what Animal Liberation Victoria thinks of vegan second hand shopping – a more affordable, and very sustainable option.

Please note: note all brands are completely vegan, unless stated. We have done this so as to present the best ethical and vegan garments available on the market.

Second Hand Treasures!

Animal Liberation Victoria also endorses the (more affordable!) buying of second hand and vintage vegan ‘leather’ products, which have already been created from man made materials. Have a look in your local thrift store, vintage store, or on online secondhand stores like ASOS Marketplace, Depop and thredUP!

We’ve selected some second hand shoes found through searching ‘vegan leather’ on Depop, to inspire your hunt, below. When you hunt, make sure to ask the seller to send you a picture of the material content tag!
