If you avoid fur, leather, feathers, and wool in your outerwear – you know winter coat shopping isn’t always the easiest. Just when you find a fur-less hooded coat – you find it’s 3% wool (a vegans lament!) Well, we are taking the guess work out of the job for you with an entire pinterest board devoted to our eco vegan winter outerwear finds! OBVIOUSLY — the greenest, most Eco-conscious coat is wearing the one you already own, swap from a friend, or vintage/ ebay/ used — but if your ethics land more towards animal-free fibers than landfills and overconsumerism — here are our current favorites for the coming chill.
Little Red Riding hood chic — what is sexy, organic red moleskin, and classic for day to night? This Vaute Couture number, like everything from Vaute, is eco, handmade, and crueltyfree;
Welcome back the 70’s in this rocker meets hippy faux fur number from Free People;
Give off when- Twiggy- met- Holly Golightly in this faux sweetie. Often we take umbrance with faux fur – thinking it looks too authentic and sends a bad message — but with this baby and her pink fluffiness, it’s more kitsch than serious fur hag. Plus – never forget your NO FUR pin!
Are you more puffy coat than faux fur? This lightweight puffer has enough room underneath for sweaters and hoodies, and looks feminine – not bulky.
3 from Naketano — because we can’t actually decide which is the greatest as these coats are some of the warmest winter coats we’ve ever owned. And the details are endless — zippers, buttons, faux fur on the inside, special seams — places you’d never imagine. From a eco-vegan company in Germany. All available at zalando.co.uk priced between 110-150 pounds. More than worth the international shipping. UPDATE: NAKETANO IS NOW AVAILABLE STATESIDE ON AMAZON.COM – CLICK HERE FOR THE RANGE THEY OFFER FOR ORDER
Perfect for a night at the theater, or a casual date – this vegan fairtrade coat is a brilliant shape, with over-size lapels and with a slight cocoon shape, it is super-flattering and cozy.
River Island also has 3 vegan coats we are coveting. They aren’t overtly eco (meaning no organic materials or handmade using fair trade materials or small company ethics as far as we know) but they are vegan and well-priced. We love these 3;
Prairie Underground, in Seattle, is the brain child of two eco designing women, Davora Lindner and Camilla Eckersley who use all organic and recycled materials in their designs. We love this swingy raincoat.
Sweater coat not made from wool? Gotcha! Patagonia offers one made from recycled fibers!
Even better from Patagonia – this two in one coat!! The Vosque Parka is a casual 3-in-1 coat with a nylon/polyester blend shell that has a tweedy look; the nylon ripstop zip-out liner is insulated with 100-g Thermogreen® 100% polyester (90% recycled). And available in 4 colorways!
