You can view vegan shoes and sustainable clothing in two ways. The first one is honestly produced clothing where the footprint is minimalized. You also have ‘good quality’ clothing. We think both are important when choosing clothes. Thus, here’s a list of 10 fair clothing stores for you.
12 Sustainable Clothing Stores in Amsterdam
What are vegan shoes and vegan Clothing?
Shoes and clothing that are created from a perspective that takes the best possible solution for the people, planet and animals. In short this means, animal free shoes and clothing. Vegan shoe brands mostly use vegan leather for their shoes. Recycled nylons, rubber, cardboard, organic hemp and cork are also often used ingredients. The replacement of those products ensures that, no animals will be hurt during the production. Most of those vegan shoes and clothing are also fair trade. Below you will find an overview of our favorite vegan shoes and clothing stores in Amsterdam.
