Interestingly, creating a vegan collection was a topic of debate amongst the Qwstion team some of whom argue that,

“The cowhides we’ve been using to make the parts of our bags that are exposed to the most wear and tear are essentially a bi-product of food manufacturing. This informs the nose-to-tail argument that if we already eat meat, we shouldn’t let other animal parts go to waste.”

“But where we all agree within our team, is that avoiding plastic should remain our top priority. As we embark on the next phase in our ever-evolving sustainability mission, we want to keep improving, questioning our current solutions and exploring ways to create products that are at once sustainable, functional and vegan.” Says Qwstion.
