Founder & CEO

Rebecca Mink founded the MINK brand to offer an alternative to leather. Mink’s passion to build MINK started at the astonishing age of 4 years old when she refused to eat animals and wear shoes made of leather. Mink went on to became a celebrity wardrobe stylist creating fashion forward luxury options that did not harm animals, people or the planet. Mink created the first luxury vegan shoes 22 years ago in Italy sourcing available sustainable materials. After studying vegan material for decades Mink has now invented a supreme bio based plant leather made from reclaimed fruits and vegetables to launch in 2022. Mink is a pioneer in leading innovative technologies in sustainable materials focused on using no plastic while still creating luxurious products with no compromise. Minks lifework is to shift the paradigm of how people view animal leather versus sustainable non leather options.
