As a PETA Business Friend, all Ivy & Fig products carry the PETA Approved Vegan stamp of approval. Our bags and wallets are all made with the finest vegan leather so that you can be sure that no animals were harmed in the process.
You'll often hear people joke and say, "oh, you mean plastic," but we always like to respond, "yeah, you know, instead of being made of dead animals." Vegan leather is a layer of polyurethane with a synthetic surface on it that can be customized to mimic any traditional material. The back of the polyurethane is covered with a thin fabric so that it has a similar texture to the rough side of traditional leather. You get the style you love with a durable, cruelty-free material you'll be proud of.
There are many variables in the quality of vegan leather and it's important that you understand why the NEW Ivy & Fig collections are going to feel different than you might be used to from other faux leather products.
We carefully selected the materials to be used in our products to make sure they were able to stand up to whatever you throw at them.
