How Cowhide Contributes to Eco-friendly Fashion

The Sustainability Factor

As our world becomes more aware of the environmental impact we cause, sustainable living has taken centre stage. In the fashion industry, which has for years been considered one of the biggest contributors to environmental damage, the trend toward eco-friendly materials and practices has exploded. One material that is making an increasingly noticeable appearance on the eco-fashion stage is cowhide. At Bethany Rae UK, a Dorset-based company, we're showcasing how cowhide clothing and accessories are helping to turn the tide for eco-conscious fashion.

  • Women’s Wear

Cowhide, the outer skin, and hair of a cow is a by-product of the meat and dairy industry. Using cowhide, rather than allowing it to go to waste, makes a strong statement for sustainable and resourceful fashion practices. It's not just about recycling, though; cowhide also boasts longevity and durability that outclasses many other materials, making it an investment in a sustainable fashion that pays dividends over time.

Our selection of women's cowhide belts illustrates this durability beautifully. Crafted with care and attention to detail, these belts offer not only an eco-friendly fashion choice but also an accessory that will stand the test of time. The natural, unique patterns found on each piece of cowhide mean that every belt we produce is a one-of-a-kind statement of both style and sustainability.

  • Cowhide Travel Bags

The cowhide trend goes beyond clothing. With the rise in travel becoming more eco-conscious, our cowhide travel bags are becoming increasingly popular. These bags, crafted from high-quality cowhide, are designed to withstand the rigours of travel, all while showcasing a unique style and commitment to environmentally friendly practices. Each cowhide travel bag is a testament to the beauty of natural materials and the power of sustainable fashion.

  • Cowhide Handbags

Our cowhide handbags also embody this ethos. Each cowhide handbag is a unique piece of functional art, imbued with a rugged elegance that sets it apart from its synthetic counterparts. The natural, rugged texture of the cowhide, combined with its durability, creates a handbag that not only makes a style statement but also serves as a practical, long-lasting investment.

In a world where 'fast fashion' has led to environmental damage and excessive waste, choosing cowhide is a powerful statement in favour of sustainability. Each piece of cowhide clothing, from our women's cowhide belts to our cowhide travel bags, is an opportunity to choose a product that reduces waste, lasts longer, and showcases the beauty of natural materials.

  • Natural Colours and Patterns

There's an enduring beauty to cowhide, and its use in fashion taps into a trend that honours nature and sustainability. Its natural colour variations, patterns, and textures lend themselves well to a variety of styles, making cowhide a versatile material for any wardrobe.

At Bethany Rae UK, we are proud to be part of the movement towards sustainable fashion. By choosing our cowhide products, our customers are not only making a statement of style but also of responsibility towards the environment. Each cowhide belt, travel bag, or handbag that we produce is a step towards a more sustainable and stylish future.


In conclusion, cowhide contributes to eco-friendly fashion in meaningful ways. It makes use of a by-product that would otherwise go to waste, provides durable products that withstand the test of time, and offers an entirely unique aesthetic that celebrates the beauty of nature. As the fashion industry continues to evolve towards more sustainable practices, cowhide will continue to be an important part of this movement.

We, at Bethany Rae UK, are committed to providing high-quality, sustainable fashion options for our customers. In cowhide, we've found a material that embodies our values and allows us to create stunning, durable products that our customers can be proud to wear. From women's cowhide belts to cowhide travel bags and Rucksacks, we're proud to bring cowhide to the forefront of eco-friendly fashion.
