Gallery: 10 Cruelty-Free Faux-Snakeski...

TOEING THE LINE

A cobalt toe-cap makes a bold statement on the faux-snakeskin "Nora" ballet flat by Cri de Coeur, a vegan-friendly shoe label that uses such cruelty-free materials as low-VOC polyurethane, 100 percent recycled Ultrasuede (derived from post-industrial polyester), and reclaimed wooden soles.

TROMPE L’OEIL

Stella McCartney’s scaly blouse only looks like snake leather. It’s actually made from 100 percent cotton jersey, which the vegan designer cut to create a wide boatneck, draped cap sleeves, and ruching at the hip that (kinda, sorta) resembles molting skin.

HIT OR HISS?

If you have to walk a mile in someone’s shoes, they might as well be these handcrafted Argentinean alpargatas by Pauline in Love. Besides packing plenty of style, these on-trend foot-cozies also support ethical labor through the Working World, a nonprofit that helps local craftspeople and independent factory owners bring their products to a larger market.

ORIGINAL SIN

Made from repurposed truck tarpaulins, Freitag’s “Hind” shopper comprises 648 pieces, laboriously hand-knotted to scaly effect. Another fun fact? The bag gets its name from Ella Cora Hind, western Canada’s first female journalist—a tangential nod, according to the Swiss manufacturer, to the serpent that made an apple-chomper out of Eve.
