Many people still turn a blind eye to the horror brought about by the existence of leather production. Animals are caught in the middle of this profit-driven industry and are continuously slaughtered for their skin. Bryan Pereira wants to join the cause of putting an end to this type of business.
Unfortunately, some countries still don’t have any animal welfare laws and continue to condone the killings and have appalling track records of animal cruelty. Millions of these animals, mostly cattle, undergo a lot of testing and factory farming to feed the sinful needs of the leather industry.
Bryan is launching a new luxury leather fashion brand called Designers Leather. The company will focus on releasing products that are 100% plant-based leather. They aim to produce merchandise that will purely be made out of plants, but still have the qualities of real leather. The products will range from luxury wallets, caps, shirts, and sneakers.
Currently, his team is conducting experiments to test out different plants to know what would be suited to become their primary material for the luxury items.
Bryan co-founded the company with his wife, Amanda Silva, and they want to help save animals by investing entirely in making vegan leather. They want to make a difference in the industry somehow and urge consumers to purchase clothes and other products that use plant-based alternatives for real leather.
Aside from promoting the welfare of animals, Bryan and Amanda are also committed to helping indigent children. Twenty percent of their profits will go to different charities helping impoverished children in Sri Lanka, India, Philippines, Indonesia, and other countries. They also want to build schools in poor communities to offer children the right to learn.
Both Bryan and his wife have their heart in the right place and are focused on promoting good causes. Amanda Silva is a career-woman and has a well-rounded personality. She is one of the leading supermodels in Sri Lanka. She is also a dancer, an actress, and a celebrity who has won many awards around the globe.
Since the company is set to launch around July or August, Bryan is busy making music in the meantime. Aside from being an entrepreneur and investor, he is also known as a pop and country singer-songwriter from Sri Lanka.
Bryan is a verified Spotify artist and has a Youtube channel. He did a lot of acoustic song covers, which are all available in this YouTube playlist, before writing and releasing his songs. He recently released his single called “Marry Me,” which is a perfect mix of his country and pop style. The song was written by Bryan and was produced with the help of Billboard producer Taylor Franklyn, an opportunity that not all emerging artists get to achieve.
Bryan hopes to inspire the people from the music, modeling, and fashion industry to speak up and extend compassion to different causes. He also encourages people to be more conscious about using different products that may bring harm to animals.
