Create a brand with products that are 100% unisex, ethical, Vegan, stylish & chic and appeal to not just the Vegan market but to everyone.

“The fashion accessories industry is forever evolving and new styles and designs are appearing constantly in mid-price range brands. One thing we haven’t seen yet, is a brand utilise a completely natural product that has the same tendencies as leather, yet is more robust, cruelty free and uses less CO2 in manufacture.”
