@mikipassport what up fam. Love what your doing but how can I as a vegan support. Hopefully you can come across another material like these guys so we the non leather wearers can support the homie.

@thediscerningbrute

@thediscerningbrute
@zeitgeistspublishing there is s reason for every cent. Happy to share the story of our supply chain, but to summarize: workers are paid fairly, environmentally certified, costly high-performance materials are invested in. Designers and part-timers are paid. There is no way to make "affordable" fashion without cutting corners or harming people or animals. I wish it weren't so but this is the cost of not producing in sweatshops or in mass volumes in cheap, crappy materials :( but the good news is that our customers invest in a value chain they want to see flourish and in long-lasting items that make cheap, fast fashion unnecessary. I know not everyone can afford it, but that doesn't justify exploring workers or using cheap, poor quality materials.

@zeitgeistspublishing

@zeitgeistspublishing
@thediscerningbrute Thanks for your time and words. I totally support your vision and I do agree 100% with everything you summarize. Of course I do compare prices with similar companies like novacas, vegetarian shoes, good guys and more to mention. I understand your range/ run is way lower then these companies and therefor more exclusive. Please understand I don't want to bring your company down and support it always. You do make a change.... Again thanks for the time to write

It's #earthday. Instead of seeing images of cars and smokestacks, you should be seeing images like this (shot by @weanimals). The global demand for wool has resulted in a BILLION #sheep on the planet that we bred to be here. Land. Water. #Methane. #CO2. Energy. Waste. The livestock industries represent the single-greatest cause of the worst environmental problems. Wool is not sustainable. Go #vegan. #veganfashion

Spent some time with artist #WaltonFord today at his studio in #NYC. We hung out and chatted about being obsessed with the history of animal representation as well as my forthcoming 'Fashion Animals' book. This man is one of the most incredible painters whose work highlights animals' dignity and complexity. The piece in the background is one in a series about a #panther who escaped from a #Zurich zoo in the 1930s.

Nonhumans surely? We are also animals

@thediscerningbrute

@davidbbellamy I always thought humans were minerals! πŸ˜… He paints mostly nonhuman animals. I'm using the colloquial meaning of animal.

@davidbbellamy

@davidbbellamy
I know but the continuation of the human vs animals divide perpetuates our false consciousness and self granted faux entitlement in relation to our next door neighbour Earthlings. In my opinion our not owning up to the fact that we are animals and that to understand them we need only look at how we would feel in their situations ... entrenches human animal cruelty to nonhuman animals. I think use of the term nonhuman animals is a solution πŸ‘

#leather subsidizes the slaughter industries. It's not a "byproduct". They're not simply making use of "waste". In fact, leather represents the most economically significant aspect of the slaughter industries, while meat is not always as profitable, as Kate Carter of @guardianfashion pointed out. Let's make sure to clarify this point anytime we hear someone say that leather is a byproduct. If anything, meat is the byproduct. πŸ’‘ photo by the incredible Jo-Anne McArthur of @weanimals

@thediscerningbrute I like your shoes, but I'm iffy in buying shoes clothes online for the simple fact that if it doesn't fit it usually a hassle to get it fixed. Do you have any recommendations on places in Bay Area CA. I know based in NY, but maybe you know some good shops here in cal that have your products.

People who buy into it, vote for fur. They be like. "I'm supporting animals being harmed by buying this" i used to get mad, and inside i'm on fire- seeing someone with fur. Now I just say: "oh no", whyyy? You are to beautiful to wear fur." Makes people think and respond different. Otherwise their ego will be speaking..
