FOReT wins Vegan Fashion Award 2022 by Peta

Mumbai: Vegan-friendly fashion brand FOReT has won the best vegan wallet at the 2022 Vegan Fashion Award by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) India, which honours cruelty-free clothing, accessories, and jewellery.

The brand was awarded for exhibiting cutting-edge innovation and sustainability in contemporary fashion. FOReT’s products are handmade using genuine & luxurious cork material, with great attention to craftsmanship and design.

Created with the ethos of simplicity, diversity, and sustainability, FOReT's products—including trendy wallets, laptop bags, handbags, and jewellery—are timeless and bold fashion statements. At the same time, they promote natural fibres that are earth-friendly and are not sourced from animals.

Commenting on the win, FOReT's founder Supriya Shirsat Satam said, "As India’s first brand to launch jewellery and handbags from a resourceful plant-based material, Cork, we are thrilled to accept the Vegan Fashion Award from Peta. Cork has been popularly known only for its use as a wine stopper; however, at FOReT, we have repurposed the upcycled cork bark to create exclusive and elegant jewellery and handbags. Upcycled banana bark is another key material celebrated in our handbags. Our primary focus is to design our products such that they celebrate the texture of plant-based materials while creating a visually appealing fashion product. The award brings us closer to achieving our mission of creating a new narrative where vegan fashion is not chosen as an alternative, but as a primary fashion choice."
