Bentley’s loyalists are spread out across the globe, and that includes vegans too. So what do you do when you’re in love with those uber-luxury road rulers but can’t stand the idea of reclining in leather upholstered seats? You influence Bentley to explore options. Affluent vegan Bentley enthusiasts have done just that and now Bentley’s Mulliner department is testing some unique interior solutions for its vegan clientele. So they’re playing around with innovative options such as Protein, Mushroom and Jellyfish substitutes- each as classy as its animal skinned counterparts. Protein leather, also known as Pleather is made from oil in the form of plastic, either PVC or polyurethane, whereas Mushroom leather or Muskin is biodegradable leather extracted from mushroom caps and tanned using chemical free methods. Jellyfish material is another biosynthetic compound that will be used to produce the legendary car’s all-vegan interior. We do wonder, though, why jellyfish aren’t being considered part of the animal kingdom. That’s some luxe ‘food’ for thought!
