Since day one, our styles have been vegan. We meticulously research the brands we work with before adding them to our core collection (learn more about Our Values and how they inform our buying process).
"Vegan" is one of our values. Every garment and item we stock is made with no harm to animals. Up until recently, vegan wardrobes were full of plastic-heavy alternatives to leather and wool, but our customers don't have to choose between animal rights and protecting the environment. The demand for vegan fashion motivates our brands to create eco-friendly alternatives to animal-derived materials. At treen, vegan-inspired bio plastics are beginning to dominate our collection—from Flamingos Life's use of corn, Angela Roi's use of cacti to Thinking Mu's use of hemp.
We wanted to shine the spotlight on our brands that are creating low carbon, animal-free alternatives to leather and wool. These styles will be in your wardrobe for the rest of your life—a testament to their quality and attention-to-detail.
Hemp Shiva Long Sleeve T-shirt
This long-sleeve is made from hemp and organic cotton. Organic hemp is one of the most sustainable crops. Dubbed the plant of the future, it grows 4 meters in just 4 months with almost no water. It has so many uses, like becoming durable, warm clothing due to the varying weights available. A fantastic animal-free wool alternative.
Traci Boxy Faux Fur Coat
Approximately 30 plastic bottles are used to make one of these faux fur coats. These plastic bottles would otherwise end up in landfill or the ocean. The result is the most realistic, sumptuous coat that's animal-free.
Handmade in Spain, these sneakers are made with corn waste, bamboo, organic cotton and natural rubber. This corn waste material has passed the most important quality standards. It’s gone through flexion tests and is actually more durable than leather. A win for animal-free alternatives!
