What is Vegan Leather?

31 Oct

LVL Pounches are one of many items now being made from vegan leather.

The team at Pop! Promos has expanded their line of products with in a number of creative ideas made from Vegan Leather of LVL. These are Pop! Promos items, so of course expect lots of color, lots of fun, but what exactly is meant by Vegan Leather? I asked.

The term vegan leather is one that is relatively new to the promotional products industry. Simply put, vegan leather is a sustainable and ethical alternative to traditional leather. Most vegan leather is made using plastic-based polyvinyl chloride or polyurethane materials. In the past, the term “pleather” (plastic leather) was used because of the makeup of the base materials.

While it’s acknowledged that the use of plastics still has drawbacks, in comparison to the resources and waste output of creating leather, it still creates less of an environmental impact, in addition to being cruelty free.

Vegan leather also offers the consumer a durable, high-quality material which can be decorated in a number of exciting and versatile ways. From full-color detailed imagery to solid patterns, vegan leather is an excellent canvas for branding opportunities!

Low Maintenance: In addition to being stylish, the crosshatch texture of LVL products is easier to wipe clean than traditional pebbled leather, so your full-color designs will stay brighter and last longer.

Luxurious Feel: The LVL Line is crafted with high-quality vegan leather with a fashionable crosshatch texture. Modeled after traditional Saffiano leather, the elevated, dimensional texture of our vegan leather feels just as luxurious as it looks.

Cruelty Free: Made from durable crossline PVC, the entire LVL Line offers an animal-free, ethical alternative to your favorite leather goods, with the added bonus of full-color customization possibilities at an attractive price.

If you are interested in these products to promote your own business, or if you wish to see some samples, email info@proformagreen.com for information and pricing.

And as always, if you really want to do something sustainable, do not buy promotional products. All products are consumption at one level or another. So if you must buy, 1) Buy local (i.e. made in USA), 2) Buy useful, long lasting items, 3) Buy sustainable/recycled/recyclable products if possible.
