Stop Shopping Wool: The Future of Fabrics is Eco-Friendly and Vegan

Forget wool. If you are looking for Eco-friendly fabrics, there are plenty of other choices. It is not a necessity to exploit sheep to make highly technical and beautiful clothing.

Luckily there are already tons of Eco-friendly vegan fabrics to choose from. No need to buy wool or other animal-derived materials. Many clothing are opting for them now instead of wool, including Panaprium. Here are some of the better cruelty-free fabrics to wear:



Linen is textile made from flax plant. The flax fiber is very durable, absorbent, strong and quick-drying, much faster than cotton. In hot and humid weather, linen is often preferred to other organic fabrics. It stays exceptionally cool and fresh as it releases moisture into the air effortlessly.
