Leather or vegan?

Genderfree Genderfree
There are lots of different types of cuffs/BDSM items out there... a lot of the expensive ones are often made out of leather. So I am wondering; if it was in your price range, would you get a leather item, or a comparable quality vegan item?

Is this an ethical reason, or is there another reason behind it?

Personally i try to go for good quality vegan items. Although i do not have a vegan diet, i do my best to buy only non-animal tested/cruelty free products, which includes hair, body and face wash as well as lubes. I also do my best to stay away from companies who partake in animal testing (although that becomes very hard to do). The only time i indulge in products that are made form animals (like leather) it is something thrifted/vintage that is gifted/given to me.

Real leather. You're not saving any cows buying vegan. >.> May as well put the skins to use rather than throw them out.

Always vegan. Animal skins aren't mine to use, they belong to the animal!
