Texon Vogue, the popular cellulose nonwoven material, has been certified by The Vegan Society and can now carry the Vegan Trademark.

Texon Vogue is a durable, practical, washable, cellulose-based material that is widely used by brands to create products including bags and accessories, jeans labels, book bindings, stationery, luggage tags and more. It has long been recognised as a versatile alternative to leather and is available in a range of colours, thickness and finishes.

The certification give users of the material absolute confidence that its ingredients have not involved the use of any animal product, by product or derivative, and have not involved testing of any sort on animals.

“This is an important milestone in the history of Texon Vogue which is used across an array of consumer and fashion applications,” said Holger Hoffmann, general manager of Texon Germany and France and director of exports. “Made from 100% cellulose fibre, Texon Vogue is manufactured using efficient, eco-friendly production and finishing methods. As demand for it continues to grow, we are delighted that we can now officially brand the range ‘vegan friendly’. The Vegan Society’s Vegan Trademark is a powerful symbol that’s instantly recognised by consumers worldwide. It is great to be able to use this hallmark of quality.”

Texon Vogue joins a list of more than 58,000 products worldwide that have been registered by The Vegan Society. To achieve its certification, the team at Texon had to complete a series of in-depth audits, disclosing all raw materials and processing chemicals used in its manufacture. Texon’s suppliers and their partners were also involved in the certification process.
