Nōskin is the new PETA-approved brand slinging high-quality vegan shoes and garments
Spring has sprung, friends, and you know what that calls for – a wardrobe refresh. A decluttering of the closet is good for the soul and once you’ve dropped those bags of unwanted clothes to your local op-shop, you may get the urge to replace what has been Marie Kondo’d. To reduce your carbon footprint this time around, it would be wise to shop a bit more sustainably and choose to buy ethical where you can. Helping you to do just that is vegan, PETA-approved clothing brand Nōskin, which is selling everything from Japanese selvedge denim to hemp clothing and leather-alternative shoes.
Nōskin is the outcome of a trio of mates banding together –founders Jai, Ash and Tony – with a shared objective to change the perception of ethical and vegan clothing. Starting with a goal to produce high-quality vegan shoes and garments, the ultimate vision for Nōskin evolved to create durable, ethical designs with no compromise to aesthetics or style. In lesser words, cruelty-free gear that people can still look hot as heck in. After designing its first product collection last year (aka the year that shall not be named), Nōskin now sets the gold standard for quality across ethical fashion pieces like vegan footwear, Japanese selvedge denim and hemp clothing. The brand even bares the ‘PETA Approved Vegan’ accreditation – which means that Nōskin and its manufacturers all commit to producing products that do no harm to animals.
For those itching to add to their wardrobe, you can currently snag goodies like classic stonewashed denim jeans made from premium Japanese Kaihara Indigo selvedge, a traditional chore coat made from hemp, vegan combat boots (so you can live out your Daria dreams), an organic cotton t-shirt and 1950s-style athletic sneakers. As part of its commitment to sustainability, Nōskin designs its products to last as long as possible, with the hope that one day Nōskin garb will be found on the racks at vintage stores, so a whole new generation of sustainable-fashion lovers can sport the cruelty-free attire.
