Texon gains Vegan Society certification for Vogue material

Texon Vogue is a durable, practical, washable, cellulose-based material that is used by brands to create products including jeans labels, bags and accessories.

Recognised as a versatile alternative to leather, and available in a range of colours, thicknesses and finishes, Texon Vogue is now verified by The Vegan Society, an international standard that is used to authenticate vegan products worldwide.

The certification of Texon Vogue will give users of the cellulose-based solution absolute confidence that the material and its ingredients do not and have not involved the use of any animal product, by product or derivative, and do not or have not involved testing of any sort on animals, Texon explains.

“This is an important milestone in the history of Texon Vogue – which is used across an array of consumer and fashion applications. Made from 100% cellulose fibre, Texon Vogue is manufactured using efficient, eco-friendly production and finishing methods,” says Holger Hoffmann, general manager Texon Germany and France and director, exports at Texon. “As demand for Texon Vogue continues to grow, we are delighted that we can now officially brand the range ‘vegan friendly’. The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark is a powerful symbol that’s instantly recognised by consumers worldwide. It is great to be able to use this hallmark of quality, which reinforces our diligence, our ethics and our commitment to creating products that have minimal impact on the environment and the world around us.”

Texon Vogue joins a list of more than 58,000 products worldwide that have been registered by The Vegan Society. To achieve its certification, the team at Texon had to complete a series of in-depth audits, disclosing all raw materials and processing chemicals used in the manufacture of Texon Vogue. Texon’s suppliers and their partners were also involved in the certification process, providing evidence and assurances that the ingredients they produce and the raw materials they source for use in Texon Vogue are also vegan friendly.

Texon has previously been recognised with a Gold level Material Health Certificate from the Cradle to Cradle (C2C) Products Innovation Institute for its Texon Vogue Sahara material.
