Hottest vegan fashions roundup 2019
Why is vegan fashion so important? You might think avoiding leather, wool, fur, snakeskin, and other animal products was enough. But if your commitment to veganism comes with a dedication to doing your very best for the planet and for your body, then every thread you put on becomes a way to show that commitment.
Luckily, VeganNation is here to help you out, showcasing some of the coolest innovations in vegan fashion for 2019 in this roundup of seven partners who are showing their creativity in this area.
Shoes & Beyond
As VP Sales and Business Development in the international market, Liat found herself needing to dress the part, but it was a challenge since she’s a vegan — especially when it came to finding great shoes that didn’t look too clunky. That’s why she started her Tel Aviv business, Shanili, where she’s combining two of her loves — her love of animals and fashion — to create the shoes she dreamed of wearing in the corporate world. Shanili’s motto is “Live Fashion, Walk Compassion,” offering gorgeous high-fashion shoes you’d swear were leather for men and ladies. The store also offers a range of trendy accessories — check it all out at https://shanili.com/en
Veganism starts at birth, and for the littlest ones in your life, you’ll definitely want to know about Goolibaby, shoes that look as adorable as the leather ones you can find everywhere, with one huge difference — they’re made out of environment-friendly cotton with textured non-slip rubber soles to keep kids safe. Available in baby to toddler sizes, some with personalization, this is another business created by a mom who couldn’t find products to suit her lifestyle, so she started creating them, focusing on creating products that are friendly to the environment, animal cruelty free, and fair-trade based. Goolibaby also sells a variety of textile-based nursery décor. Find it at https://www.goolibaby.com/
Gurus flip flops are already making waves abroad, and now they’ve come to Israel. These natural sandals, available in a delicious buffet of bright colors and color combos, stand out for their distinctive “toe-button” design that helps keep them firmly in place. All the natural rubber used in Gurus flip flops is sustainably sourced from family farms in Kerala, India. In fact, a portion of the profits goes toward planting new trees on partner farms back in India, so you’re actually benefiting the environment along with an ethical business every time you buy a pair. Check out their fresh designs for Summer 2019 here: https://www.gurusisrael.co.il/

Just when you thought you’d seen everything cork can do (see above!), there’s even more in store from Spapla, an awesomely fun name that comes from Italian. You’ll find a huge range of décor items here, all fashioned by co-creators Danna and Efi Sabo in flexible, natural-grain cork. From cushions to coasters, wine tags to storage baskets, lamps, clocks, tissue boxes, and more. There’s also a great range of fashion accessories, and it’s all made by hand in their own studio.
