PETAUK_VHA_Logo_1-1-420x420As demand for compassionate and sustainable homeware grows – in line with soaring interest in vegan living – the PETA Vegan Homeware Awards celebrate the best designs and innovations for a cruelty-free home.

 
Rockett St George has won Best Vegan Sofa for its vintage faux-cowhide design, Debenhams is recognised for its innovative microfibre technology in the Best Down-Free Bedding category, the Best Silk-Free Sheets award goes to Habitat for its luxe Egyptian cotton Sateen range, and Ikea has taken the Best Faux-Sheepskin Rug award for its soft and warm Tejn rug. Other winners include Šimon Kern, who received the Innovation Award for his Beleaf Chair – made from recycled leaves and bio-resin – and vegan interior designer Emily Turnbull, who took home the Influencer Award.

 
PETA Director Elisa Allen, says, “Home is where the heart is – and compassionate consumers are driving the demand for beautiful vegan homeware. Forward-thinking designers are experimenting with sustainable and cutting-edge vegan materials and offering a great variety of cruelty-free choices to suit every home and budget.”

 
In addition to being kinder to animals, vegan fabrics – natural or synthetic – have an environmental footprint that is minor compared to the devastation caused by factory farming and the chemicals that must be used to prevent animal-derived materials from decomposing in people’s homes.
