What is Vegan Leather?
Vegan leathers are plant-based leathers often made from fallen leaves, fruit waste, cork, or recycled plastics, crafting a final product that puts animal skins to shame. Being made from a sustainable raw material doesn't mean it encompasses quality or can't compete with animal skin. The quality of the vegan products has far exceeded expectations, as the unique process crafting young leaves with light shades on a product gives each piece its own uniqueness and individuality.
Veganism not only cares about the treatment of animals, but it also cares about environmental friendliness by engaging in tasks that will have a great impact on the sustainable resources of future generations. Thamon's vegan bags and accessories, are made with extremely high-quality materials and precision craftsmanship on every handmade product they offer. The company’s goal and mission is to dedicate themselves to create higher quality products that can be a better alternative to animal based products.
Each piece is created using fallen leaves that are collected by the local community. Then checked by hand to make sure they are of the highest quality. Once the leaves are selected each piece is dyed and treated with an environmentally friendly polymer to restore and enhance it.
Every piece is attentively crafted by proficient artisans and professional craftsmen with more than 20 years of experience. The work provides a fair income to the communities involved allowing them to provide for their precious families.
