Deadly Ponies presents a new vegan-friendly collection
Much to a delight, Deadly Ponies has just released a new ethically-minded collection, created from a plant-based textile innovation that is vegan-friendly leather. The capsule collection, named Cactus, is sourced from an organic cactus plantation in Mexico. With two years in the making, the material is a by-product of the pharmaceutical industry, using only natural rainfall and the sun as energy sources.
