Sustainable & Vegan: Veshin Looks To ‘Rewrite’ Fashion Industry In China With New Ethical Factory

“People just need to be shown how things in China are made. His transparency tactics will hopefully reverse a lot of that mindset.” 

“According to Euromonitor International, prior to COVID-19, China’s vegan food market is estimated to be worth nearly US$12 billion by 2023; the outbreak will likely have accelerated this”

“It’s not a rebrand and nor is Veshin a startup in the traditional sense. What it is, is something entirely new, self-aware and aimed squarely at redefining sustainable manufacturing in Asia.”

“New sustainable fashion manufacturer aims to transform the global fashion industry. Veshin starts this revolution by making vegan handbags and accessories.”

“…and through our F.A.K.E. Movement community, connected us to Joey Pringle, Co-Founder of Veshin Factory, a development & production facility who specializes in vegan bags made of pineapples, cacti, apples, and soon, mushrooms”

“In contrast to the conventional fashion industries, a major part in China, Veshin commits to use only vegan materials like plant-based leather, regenerated nylon, OEKO TEX-certified recycled polyester, organic cotton and Tencel lyocell for its purses, luggage and wallets.”
