Vegan & Vegetarian Cover Options for all albums

Trying to find wedding albums that are animal-free can be confusing as leather, pleather, leatherette, “non-leather” and “vegan leather” are bandied about freely by many album makers, without necessarily providing the definitions they are using. I am committed to offering a wide number of options for my vegetarian and vegan clients, and this guide is to make it easier for you to get straight to the options that are right for you.

Within my website, the following definitions will be used:

  • Leather – material sourced in some way from animal hide
  • Vegan Leather – material mimicking leather without using any animal products or PVC
  • Pleather – material mimicking leather without using any animal products that may contain PVC.

All faux leathers for these albums are vegan leather. The Skinny Basic has no animal leather options, but does have silk and mohair that vegans may wish to avoid.

Vegan options:

  • Garbo (faux suede finish)
  • Eclectic Looks (black patent, metallic-look and faux reptile finishes)
  • Paraphernalia (heavy fabrics)
  • Middle Earth (faux textured/”ostrich” suede finish) collection
