Ministry of Tomorrow says its new vegan bag line is 'fashion to live for': made ethically and without animal products.
The smart and versatile bags are handmade in Nairobi, Kenya in what Ministry of Tomorrow says is a 'fair wage, eco-factory'. They're made with Italian and Japanese vegan leather fabrics, with linings of certified organic and fair trade canvas, sourced from India.
The brand says the interior's design is inspired by Maasai warriors and is all part of 'a statement that says we are fighting back', says Julian Prolman, Founder and President of Ministry of Tomorrow.
He comments: "We want to see an end to the 'fashion to die for' scenario that has sadly become a societal norm, where animals are killed for our pleasure, in a barbaric perception of luxury that literally costs an arm and a leg. We believe it is morally corrupt to produce garments and accessories at the expense of animals and nature.
"As an alternative, we promote 'fashion to live for' and use this stand as a vehicle for activism that contributes to a movement to end the needless suffering of animals."
