KD New York is introducing Vegetable Cashmere on Kickstarter as a collection of vegan cashmere apparel that can be worn as a cruelty-free and plant-based alternative to traditional cashmere products that are made with animal fiber. The brand has decades of experience in creating athleisure and spent years refining its Vegetable Cashmere—according to KD New York, "secret is in the knitting."
The luxurious material is not just plant-based but also natural and biodegradable, with an appearance and texture that perfectly resembles traditional cashmere. The Vegetable Cashmere Collection introduces 13 styles that are made with yarn spun from soy protein by-products that are repurposed from the making of tofu. These elegant and eco-friendly styles include pieces like camisole tops, leg warmers, t-shirts and more.
