Whether for yourself or as a gift, you can buy any of these vegan men's wallets assured that they're free of animal-derived materials and by-products.
What is a ‘Vegan’ Men’s Wallet?
Quite simply, a vegan wallet is just like a regular wallet, only made from materials that are considered cruelty-free, rather than from animal-derived materials, such as leather or crocodile skin. Much like their non-vegan counterparts, they can be used for casual or dressed up occasions, and they can carry around your cards and cash; the only difference is that they’re in better taste.
What materials are used?
Vegan wallets can be made from a wide-variety of materials that are considered cruelty-free and vegan, including (but not limited to):
- MuSkin (mushroom-based ‘leathery’ material)
- Faux Suede (or “Suedette”)
- Funky recycled materials such as tires, inner tubes, seat belts and hoses!
- Faux Leather (sometimes known as “Leatherette” or “Pleather”)
Please Note: Faux leather can be made from PVC, microfibre, recycled plastic, recycled PET polyester, degradable polyurethane and many others.
Why buy a wallet that’s vegan?
As consumers, we tend not to consider where the materials used to make our wallets, shoes or clothes come from when we’re making a purchase; we seem most concerned with the look, the feel, and the price of the item. But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll find that there’s a very real and very painful cost to many of the materials used in these everyday items; animals need their skin more than we need their skin, and sometimes it’s taken from them in unspeakably cruel ways. Buying a vegan-friendly wallet is buying an animal-friendly wallet.
Does one wallet make a difference?
Does it ever! Here’s how it works; when you buy a vegan wallet (or any other ‘vegan’ product), you’re telling manufacturers, designers and retailers that there’s a growing market for animal-friendly products. Revenue coming in from these products will help support the product line, so in turn, more of them will be made. Demand fuels supply.
This works two ways; the more vegan products leaving retail shelves, the less animal-derived products leaving shelves. Companies start to get the message that the market for cruelty-derived products is shrinking, and the market for cruelty-free products is growing. Lack of demand fuels lack of supply.
Are vegan men’s wallets more expensive?
In general no, but it really depends on the wallet. Just like their non-vegan counterparts, vegan wallets come from different designers and brands, are sold at different stores, and can be made from many different materials. Just like those made from animal-derived materials, the prices of vegan wallets can vary dramatically.
What companies make them?
There are basically 2 types of companies that make vegan wallets for men; there are those that make leather wallets and offer a vegan line to appeal to the conscientious consumer, and then there are companies that exclusively make vegan products, whether ‘accidentally’, or for ethical or business reasons. Some companies that are entirely vegan-friendly include:
- Matt & Nat
- Alchemy Goods
- The Vegan Collection
How do you choose which companies to list?
Our process is pretty simple actually. We keep a growing list of companies that we find through social media, by word of mouth, and by other means, whose entire line of men’s wallets seems to be vegan-friendly.
We then contact those companies to double-check that they don’t use any animal-derived materials in the production of their wallets. Then, we check to see if they sell their products on Amazon. Finally, if they assure us their wallets are vegan-friendly and they sell them on Amazon, we list them here for your convenience.
Why don’t you list vegan wallets from non-vegan companies?
While we feel that it’s important for non-vegan companies to listen to the market and offer animal-friendly alternatives to their traditional product lines, we also tend to have a tough time getting many of these companies to answer our questions with regard to the materials used for these wallets. If we can’t be confident that we’re getting accurate and complete information from a company, we won’t list their products.
