Holiday Gift Guide: Vegan Friendly
Posted on December 13, 2011 by Rachel Rector
For a strict vegan, scrutinizing labels for animal ingredients is second nature. Many opt against buying silk, wool, leather, fur and feathers, all of which are derived from animals. Show your love to a compassionate vegan by taking the time to verify the fiber content of lingerie before purchasing. As Lille’s resident vegan, I’ve taken some of the guesswork out of shopping for the vegan in your life with this handy little gift guide!
Designer darling and lifelong vegetarian Stella McCartney uses alternatives to leather and fur in her designs (though she does occasionally use silk) and also promotes animal rights through organizations like PETA and many others. You’ll be sure to impress your favorite vegan by choosing Stella McCartney’s beautiful and animal fiber free Jane Snuggling Underwire Bra, Marguerite Riding Soft Bra, or Madeleine Celebrating Bustier, which is made of eco-friendly bamboo.
In a world of luxurious silk chemises, a vegan gal can sometimes feel left out, but plenty of beautiful options are available at Lille. I adore the Art Deco inspired details of the Timeless Chemise by La Perla, the soft and comfortable babydoll appeal of Eberjey’s Colette Chemise and the effortless sexiness of the Whisper V-Neck Slip from Only Hearts.
Of course, we have many, many more vegan friendly lingerie options – so don’t hesitate to ask us the fiber content. We’re here to help!
