nat-2's 'Funghi Line' was recently launched as a high-end, vegan footwear selection made from real tree fungus. This innovative, animal-free material is combined with other natural ones, including "eco-cotton frottee, microfibre suede from recycled PET bottles, real cork insoles and real rubber outsoles."

The "mushroom leather" sneakers are said to have an unbelievably soft feel and a vintage look that will appeal to many style-conscious consumers.

In the same way that many consumers are now taking a more ethical approach to eating through plant-based products, people are also examining other aspects of their lifestyle, especially when it comes to fashion. As such, a number of designers are now launching sustainable, vegan apparel and accessory pieces made with alternative kinds of leather.
