Even big luxury brands have embraced the idea, investing considerable interest in making vegan clothing lines. Unfortunately, luxurious or not, vegan clothing isn’t cheap.

The vegan lifestyle has found plenty of resistance on the road. Capable companies in industries like leather, fur, wool, exotic wood and meat, and precious gems have always invested in the perennial fight against the more conscious alternative.

Nevertheless, this is now something from the past and we must thank cork. This marvellous material...
