Get Started

“Wait, What? This is Vegan?”

That’s what everyone asks, sooner or later, when browsing the Kind Style Shop website – and the answer is always “yes!” We hand-select all the socially responsible items in our inventory from trusted brands that only offer high-quality products. Each and every one is 100% vegan – animal-free and cruelty-free – without sacrificing any of the style or feel, and many are made from sustainable materials.

Faux/Vegan Leather

The faux or vegan leather bags on our site are made from PU (polyurethane), eco-polyurethane, synthetic microfiber or ultra-suede. Polyurethane is a greener alternative to both PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and leather, offering impressive versatility and leaving behind no byproducts. Our vendors are constantly working to source new, greener materials.

To clean: Minor marks and smudges can be wiped with a baby wipe or wet cloth. Or spot clean with lukewarm water and a mild soap or detergent.

Cork Leather

Cork leather is waterproof, stain-resistant, lightweight (three times lighter than animal leather!) and easy to maintain. This eco-friendly material is considered sustainable because only the bark of the tree is detached to harvest the cork; the tree is not cut down.

To clean: Gently wipe with a clean, damp cloth. Mild soap can be added to the cloth as needed.

Piñatex

Piñatex is an exciting, innovative material made from the fibers of pineapple leaves. The fibers used are actually the byproduct of the pineapple harvest, so no additional resources are used to produce them. Piñatex resembles textured leather and is lightweight, soft, durable and eco-friendly.

Freedom Leather

Freedom Leather is a proprietary formula that provides an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional vegan leather. This special material is made of 100% silicone, a unique, non-plastic, non-petroleum based material admired for its sustainability qualities. In its raw form, it is one of the most common elements found in nature: quartz sand. It requires less water, raw material and electricity to produce compared to traditional PU or PVC materials. Freedom Leather is highly durable, as well as resistant to abrasion, stain, high humidity and light aging. It is also hypo-allergenic, vegan, environmentally friendly and recyclable.

To clean: Wipe with a clean cloth or sponge and water only. No chemicals should be used.

Peace-Suede

Peace-Suede is made from a patented raw material with a blend of recycled polyamide and recycled PU. The fabric’s exclusive formula looks and feels like suede but provides more durability, tenacity, elasticity, resilience and stain resistance. It does not contain any PVC. The dyes are all water-based, and the material is hypo-allergenic and non-toxic. Peace Suede is stain-, scratch- and water-resistant.

To clean: Gently wipe with a clean cloth and water only. No chemicals should be used.

Apple Leather

Apple leather is made from the remains of harvested apples; the apple seeds, cores and peels are re-worked to create a durable, leather-like material. The production process is eco-friendly and non-toxic. Apple leather is strong, breathable, UV-resistant, hypoallergenic and 100% biodegradable. It’s also PU- and PVC-free.

To clean: Gently wipe with a clean, dry sponge. If necessary, a damp sponge may be used.
