If you’re an animal lover like me, you’re always happy to hear designers jumping on the cruelty-free band wagon or at least starting a line that might inspire others to do the same. Now, when it comes to the prices they charge for non-leather goods, they should start pricing them a bit lower so it would entice people to be drawn not only to the design, but to its great price. People usually aim to buy leather because they find value in it lasting longer. Although faux fibers are inexpensive to produce, it’s the designers name that drives up the price.
