Vegan / Vegetarian Discussion - All Things Veg*n Forum

Ok so I've been going back in forth about this question. I really wanna buy a purse from a etsy shop/seller kittycoutureboutique. The bags are vegan leather but look very much like real leather if that giving the wrong impression to someone who does not know I am vegan and the bag is not made of animal that wearing leather is ok? I stopped wearing leather about 5 years ago for ethical reason and have not found an alternative since but what do you guy think?

    I'm not sure if people notice these things much but if they get on your case it could be a good opportunity to educate people as to the alternitives to leather.

    Is faux-leather any different to faux-fur? Both are animal friendly alternitives.

    I don't have issues with wearing faux leather. It actually gives me an opportunity to share an alternative! People comment on my purse or shoes; I don't hesitate to say it is not "real" leather. They are often fascinated and impressed that it looks so real!
