About Kind

At Kind Style Shop we offer a guilt-free shopping experience where you no longer have to choose between your love of fashion and your love of animals. We carefully curate our collection from trusted brands from around the world that offer only high-quality products. Our styles are 100% vegan, proving you can have style and be kind!

“Wait, what? This is vegan?”
That is the question most people ask when clicking through our site and the answer is always the same “Yes, yes, it is!”
Who says animal-free, cruelty-free fashion has to be dull or the feel of plastic...  not here, that’s for sure!  We hand select each bag, from trusted brands that offer only great quality bags, so you can feel confident shopping our collection.

“So, what is the material?”
There are many materials that can be used instead of using animals. Canvas, cork, nylon, netting, velvet, paper, faux or vegan leather and even pineapple leaves ("Did you say pineapple leaves?" We know, we had the same reaction! See more below).

Faux or 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 (vinyl) and leather. Our vendors are constantly working to source new, greener materials.

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

Cork Leather:
Cork Leather is waterproof, stain resistant, lightweight (3x 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 Cork Oak 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™ is an exciting new, innovative material made from the fibers of pineapple leaves. The fibers used are actually the by-product of the pineapple harvest so no additional resources are used to produce the fibers. Piñatex™ resembles textured leather and is lightweight, soft and durable.

INTRODUCING Freedom Leather:
Freedom Leather is a proprietary formula that is 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 abrasion, stain, high humidity, light aging resistant. It is 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 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.

The production process is eco-friendly and non-toxic. Apple Leather is strong, breathable, UV resistant, hypoallergenic and 100% biodegradable. and is PU and PVC free.
