What Is Texon Vogue and How Does It Help the Environment?

Texon Vogue - Vegan Leather Alternative

At Kula Bags, we use Texon Vogue to create one of a kind, stylish and long-lasting sustainable bags. If you've never heard of Texon Vogue before, this post is for you. We're sharing why we love Texon Vogue and the reasons you should too.

What Is Texon Vogue?

Texon Vogue is an environmentally friendly man-made material. Created from paper, Texon Vogue is extremely versatile whilst remaining eco and animal friendly. The sturdy nature of the material makes it a popular sustainable alternative to leather. Compared to leather, Texon Vogue has a significantly lower carbon footprint with the same durable and stylish qualities, which makes it the perfect material for all of our Vegan Backpacks and Bags.

How Does Texon Vogue Help the Environment?

Texon is dedicated to creating and supplying “high quality, high performance, sustainable material solutions.” Their Texon Vogue material is Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) accredited and is Oeko-Tex certified. At Kula, we’re passionate about working with leading manufacturers in the sustainability industry, which is why we use Texon Vogue for all of our Vegan Bags. Their ethos aligns with ours, and they have the credentials to prove their commitment to eco-friendly and ethical practices.

Alternative to Leather

Leather manufacturing is a toxic cycle that continues to have a profoundly harmful impact on the environment. One of the reasons Texon Vogue is so popular is because it's a viable alternative to leather. In comparison to other leather alternatives, Texon Vogue attains the same durability and strength as animal leather. By not using leather, we can stop the killing of innocent animals, save water, protect habitats, and provide safer working conditions for employees.

Durable Design

Texon Vogue is a robust material that will stand the test of time. The heavy-duty structure means it can easily transport weighty goods. Its washable quality means you don't have to worry about dirt and stains. A Texon Vogue bag is appropriate for every day, no matter what you're up to! Say goodbye to yearly handbag replacements; a Kula bag made using Texon Vogue is designed to last, reducing unnecessary waste and saving you money.

Zero Waste By 2025 Initiative

As a brand, we are continuously adapting and developing new ways to be as environmentally friendly as possible, and we value other brands that do the same. We're proud to use Texon for our products. Texon aims to be 100% zero waste by 2025. Alongside this, they want to reduce their carbon footprint further, protect raw materials, increase recycling across the company and reduce water wastage. We're excited to see where this journey takes them as we continue to evolve and implement further sustainable initiatives across the Kula brand.
