Looking for a warm vegan coat for winter this year? In this guide, I share some of the best vegan parka brands for women and men in 2021.
Whether you’re looking for a vegan parka with a faux-fur trim and prefer a longer length, or you need one that’s waterproof or to wear in below-freezing temperatures, there’s something for you in this list, no matter your budget.
Most warm parka coats are insulated with down feather often derived from the painful and cruel process of live-plucking geese and ducks. Thankfully there are more humane and animal-free down alternatives on the market. Some are even more environmentally-friendly than the animal version, like insulation made from recycled plastic bottles!
There are also some eco-fashion labels that use recycled down made from recycled fill from down comforters and pillows. I love the idea of taking something that would have gone to the landfill and giving it another life. But some vegans don’t feel comfortable wearing clothes that contain any animal products whatsoever, so in this post, I’m sharing some vegan parka options made without any animal materials.
QUICK TIP: Animal materials to look out for in winter coats include down, fur, leather, wool, suede, shearling lining.
