By offering vegan products, we respect the values ​​of our customers. We have PETA certification, which confirms that no animals have been harmed in the design of our products.

In addition, we use polyurethane vegan leather where many of our competitors use PVC, which is much more harmful to the environment.

This kind of material would be biodegradable, therefore excellent for our beautiful planet.
