Blog: Esprit launches vegan hantags

Katie Smith | 30 July 2014

Hong Kong-listed fashion brand Esprit is introducing vegan hangtags, in a bid to increase transparency in textile labelling and better inform conscious consumers.

Working with animal rights campaign group PETA, Esprit is piloting the vegan hangtag for its vegan shoes, and considering extending the programme in the future.

The PETA approved vegan shoes, which are made from eco-friendly faux leather and canvas, are available at select Esprit stores in Europe and online.

Esprit was last year awarded the PETA Vegan Fashion Award for its vegan trainer.
