What is the difference between faux leather and vegan leather?
Well, if so, then read on!
As someone who is very interested in all things fashion, this topic is super interesting to me. So let’s get into what they are exactly!
The easiest way to tell apart faux vs vegan leather would be by touch; faux feels like smooth plastic while vegan feels like suede or soft cotton.
Lets start with the definition of each type.
Vegan Leather is a synthetic material that resembles real leather in both appearance and texture but does not use any animal products during production.
Vegan leather comes from natural materials such as wood pulp or recycled polyester,
Vegan leather is more sustainable as there are no harmful chemicals released into nature if disposed of improperly.
Faux leather is an animal-friendly alternative to genuine leather. It is typically made from polyurethane or PVC (polyvinyl chloride). A petroleum product.
Faux leather is a type of plastic that can be recycled with other plastics in order to save energy and reduce pollution when creating new faux leather pieces.
However, because these types of plastics cannot be broken down into their original components by natural processes such as sunlight or bacteria they will never go away completely. It also requires an enormous amount of water to make it and releases hazardous substances when burned, making it not environmentally friendly
If you’re looking for an alternative to real animal skin, then vegan may be the way to go! On the other hand, if you’re just looking for affordable and stylish options that don’t harm animals in any way then check out faux products.
The argument for real leather……
The bulk of the hides used in fashion are a byproduct of cattle raised for beef production. Regardless of chemicals used in the leather tanning process, real leather may still have an edge over both of the above. Read more here

I had such a lovely time at The Adolphus Hotel in Dallas. There were tables of ladies chatting, children learning this lovely ritual and gentlemen enjoying their tea.
Consider tea for the holidays with your whole family. It makes a great tradition.
Exquisitely executed, Tea at The Adolphus is served in the beautiful French Room dining room. A storied tradition, the tea service is filled with delight and surprise, from the menu curated by our culinary team to the custom china.
During each sitting, guests can enjoy a three-course menu of tea sandwiches, scones and pastries paired with loose leaf teas from local purveyor, Zatki, who creates a special tea blend just for The Adolphus.
Both the green tea and the black tea were so expertly chosen and brewed. They were delicious and smooth as silk.
Our champagne wishes and caviar dreams came true during our tea service. We enjoyed Regis Ova Siberian Reserve Caviar. Its clean and lightly creamy taste is perfect to enjoy on its own which we did or add buckwheat blinis with crème fraîche and shaved yolk and all the other toppings which we also did.
Often the phrases “afternoon tea” and “high tea” are used interchangeably as many mistakenly believe that there is no difference. Both tea traditions are steeped in British history and the differences, subtle as they may be, are a direct result of their origins.
The origins of afternoon tea show clearly it was the preserve of the rich in the 19th century. For workers in the newly industrialized Britain, tea time had to wait until after work. By that hour, tea was generally served with heartier dishes which were substantially more than just tea and cakes.
