All that had to “get with the suffering” (away from beings), should not appear in the vegan house!
By the way, this applies not only to major things like leather sofa — denied even such things as handles from horns of dead animals, leather tabs on towels. Instead of feather pillows — hollofayber and analogues, instead of woolen carpets, linen and bamboo. And fur may be synthetic.
