These quality vegan wallets are all made with kinder and more eco-friendly alternatives to leather. It’s not true that leather is a by-product of the meat industry. It’s usually a separate industry with high pollution rates for tanning – and most items are made in countries with little or no animal welfare laws (even the designer brands).
