Now we offer a loving alternative to animal products. It looks like the suede used by so many jewelry artisans, but this is a thoughtful, vegan choice to do something less harmful to our environment. It is durable and adaptable to many projects where leather cording is called for. Sam uses it with Ultrasuede in Tricks to Looming and Bead Weaving and we also used it in Gypsy Bracelet.
Design Hint: Compassion leather is easy to knot, but we do not recommend it for jewelry with adjustable knots; it does not have the slide-factor that real leather has. To close it off at the end, we recommend an overhand knot.
