“Everyone should take this course. Not only as business owners or interior designers but as human beings.”


“I couldn’t thank Deborah DiMare enough for making this course available to interior design professionals like myself and in business in general.”


Raquel Pompa
Tenille Wood

“ is an excellent resource to learn about the issues of animal cruelty in the textiles industry and to learn about high quality animal-free alternative products.”


“By taking this course you will become aware of the truly cruel and inhumane practices that occur just to get product...that we could easily live without. In today's interior design product offerings, there are tons of fantastic cruelty-free alternatives. ”


Chloe Bullock

“ is a wonderful organization that focuses on highlighting and educating us about the animal suffering involved in the interior and fashion industries. The course also provides cruelty free alternative resources that can be bought instead.”


“I am so glad I chose the ™ Certification course. I think it is important for anyone who has the power to choose products for themselves or others to know the truth behind where each product is from and how many other options are so easily available. It is our responsibility as designers to make these right decisions and educate our clients about these choices. ”



“The Vegan Design 101 Class enlightened me. All of the items covered were very real. The program brought more awareness on the process, to own animal products produced by companies for financial gain. Animals suffer around the clock for companies and individuals to profit. You can’t sleep at night knowing this is happening. It has to STOP and we all have to wake up and make change.”


“The course is an eye-opening experience in more ways than one: first, as an informational and educational guide to the treatment of animals in the leather, fur, and other industries; and second, as a resource to let designers and others know that there are alternatives to furs and skins available that can accomplish design goals without endangering the animals who cannot speak for themselves. ”



“ is passionate about educating others and wanting to change the (luxury) market for interiors and design.”


“The cruelty free market is the future. New generations are more socially conscious. Our business has grown tremendously & offering cruelty-free alternatives in addition to our regular services. I highly recommend the course.”

Yulin Dog Festival

Nearly 1 billion animals are killed yearly for the skins & hides industries. The impact is horrific.  

  • Animals are raised to be slaughtered in unimaginable, torturous ways The pollution created by the skins & hides industries is enormous and has tremendous global impact.
  • Workers are also victims. They are desperate and work in dangerous, deplorable conditions. The chemicals and toxins used in these industries poison workers and surrounding villages & towns
  • The end user, YOU, the consumer, are surrounding yourself & your loved ones with poison soaked fabrics that are absorbed in to our skin & bodies.  

But change is happening. The world is making noise and joining the humane movement. Why haven’t you?
