Hardgraft Goes Eco-Friendly with Its Handsome Vegan-Made Collection

Hardgraft is one of the more respectable leather goods manufacturers around, having consistently implemented a high level of craftsmanship into its sprawling catalog of gear. But given that animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change, the brand has decided to veer from genuine leather for its latest collection and release an array of its most popular products crafted from plant-based material.

The leather substitute used in the new Vegan Alternative Range is meticulously made to match the existing colors in Hardgraft’s catalog. This unique, lab-made textile is crafted from renewable plant-based biomass that gradually bio-degrades, diminishing the need to use genuine leather moving forward. For an added touch of luxury, each accessory is finished off with the unmistakable Italian Saffiano cross-hatch motif.

Choices in the collection include the brand’s beloved Well-Rounded Backpack; a functional, sleek backpack equipped with a handy zipped laptop pocket and rounded out with a scratch-resistant nylon zipper. Next, the Overhead Holdall Bag is ideal as a carry-on or weekend bag, offering a spacious interior and a pair of zipped pockets, as well as a removable shoulder strap for comfort’s sake. In addition to this notable pair, other accessories include the chic Collector’s Watch Case and Quintessence Pack.

There’s no need to skimp on style or quality just because you aren’t buying real leather, and one of the best leather goods brands in the business has proven it here. Hardgraft’s Vegan Alternative Range is available on its website now, priced from $335.

Purchase: $335+
