We ❤ to give the gift of cruelty-free fashion as much as we love to wear it!
With a growing awareness of the increase of pollution, deforestation, global warming, resource depletion, and animal cruelty the holidays offer one of the greatest opportunities to lead by example by giving cruelty-free fashion that is stylish, thought-provoking, and inspiring to everyone on your holiday list!
From A to Z, we’ve assembled an exhaustive list of fabrics, materials, and textiles. “V” indicates vegan, “N” for non-vegan, and “N/V” are materials that can be made of both vegan and non-vegan materials (potentially requiring a little extra research to make sure no animals were harmed!).
What happens when you get vegan friends together to make a video? (Spoiler!) Awesome sauce!!
Enticed by a mysterious invitation promising fun, fashion, and fame, four strangers came together at a secret location in the heart of Downtown Denver. They knew they would star in a video. They knew they would be outfitted with designer cruelty-free fashions. But little did they know...
Occupying the 8th position in the Chinese Zodiac, the sheep (goat, or ram) is among the animals that people like most, symbolizing such character traits as creativity, intelligence, dependability, and calmness. They are gentle, sensitive animals who are emotionally complex and highly intelligent.

Most leather comes from the skin of animals raised for meat. Contrary to popular belief, animal skins (along with wool, fur, feathers) are not the byproduct of the meat industry. In fact, a cow’s skin can be the most profitable portion of the cow’s body, making up half of all profits of slaughterhouses that process cattle. Leather is a not a by-product, it is a co-product. This means that leather helps make the meat industry—and animal farming—profitable, which is destroying the planet.
We recently had the pleasure of connecting with Vegansaurus!, one of the most popular vegan lifestyle blogs, covering food, politics, and vegan news. Founded in 2008 now with over 32,000 Twitter followers, over 85,000 Facebook fans, over 10,000 followers on Tumblr, and referenced in numerous forums, such as the New York Times, VegNews, and the Huffington Post to name a few, Vegansaurus! has become an authority on all-things related to veganism!
So naturally, we jumped at the chance to talk with them to share more about our passions, our mission, how we carefully select the products we carry, and the vegan inspirations that drive The Compassionate Closet.
