Non-leather alternative for simple snap bracelets

Recommended Posts

First of all, sorry for the potentially sacrilegious thread!

I make a lot of embellished snap bracelets and there's a demand for a non-leather alternative. I'm using 5/6 oz leather and want a non-leather/vegan alternative synthetic substitute. I'm die cutting these out and embellishing them with different shapes/sizes of round spots. I also emboss a small logo between the male snap parts but would be willing to skip that step, if need be. 

Thanks all!

There are the usual pleather suspects, microfibers, Naugahyde, and their sort.  But if you are looking for something different.

One material that can be really nice to use is old bicycle inner tubes - those likely to be upset by the use of leather will probably find the recycling/upcycling aspect cool.
