Our Namesake -Rebecca Mink-
"I wake up everyday with overflowing passion! 21 years ago I started studying vegan leather to create my first luxury vegan shoe collection. I am thrilled to now be inventing our own vegan leather to produce our gorgeous Italian made shoes and accessories
Redefining an innovative way to express fashion without harming animals, people or the planet is my lifework. I founded MINK and my quest to push the boundaries of what it means to be a luxury vegan brand. Thinking of today and tomorrow. Creating beautiful and sustainable products without compromise.
In 2021 the best brands in the world should absolutely be sustainable to be fashionable. ”
- Rebecca Mink
