When did you last breathe some fresh air in the rain or smelt the earth? Are you able to reminisce about the petrichor yet? 

Well, here’s a magical, lavish sofa that is nothing less than an ode to nature - the vegan leather sofa!

Cruelty free sofa: A vegan leather couch is made from synthetic materials designed to mimic the look and feel of genuine leather, without using animal-derived components. 

Aesthetic Design: The sofa serves the same functions as traditional leather ones, providing seating comfort and aesthetic appeal to homes, offices, and public spaces. 

Sustainability: It offers a cruelty free, vegan, and moderately sustainable alternative for conscious consumers who avoid animal products. While the extent of sustainability depends on the material used as a replacement to leather, all alternatives do come with reduced animal exploitation and environmental impact over the conventional leather furniture.

  1. Conventional foam is non-biodegradable. So, when a foam-filled mattress or a sofa is discarded at any point, it goes straight to the landfill where the foam prevails and doesn’t decompose.
  2. Any PVCs used in such sofas as an alternative to leather do pose some threat to the environment, and are not entirely sustainable options.

While our picks for a vegan leather sofa are not perfect in sustainability, they are still a step in the right direction, and surely many steps in terms of marvelous style.
