Katie Kismet's Eco-Friendly, Vegan Leather Alternatives

Customization Product News Sustainability

In keeping with my ongoing sustainability efforts, I've been on a continuous hunt for stellar leather alternatives for the Katie Kismet bolo ties and Torus designs that use leather cord. 

While I like the look and feel of the leather I use for our bolo ties and Torus styles, I recognize there's a growing movement away from leather goods. I feel this externally when customers ask me if I have a non-leather option (as happens often in Austin), and I feel it internally from both environmental and animal-lover perspectives.

Hit me with the options!

I've not yet found the "perfect leather substitute" but I have finally found great alternatives that work well with the Katie Kismet styles. There are two kinds of leather alternatives to choose from:

  • Biodegradable cotton, which is a soft, cottony-feeling cord, and
  • Vegan leather, a vegetable-dyed cotton cord with a finish that looks and feels more like actual leather
