Queen legend Brian May has launched a range of vegan-friendly merchandise in time for Christmas.

The collection features lounge pants, scarf, and wallet – all of which are emblazoned with a guitar pattern. Prices range from £26.99-£29.99.

The new clothing items are made from 100 percent vegan-friendly cotton. Moreover, the wallet is made from PU leather and has the guitarist’s signature embossed on the back. 

‘100% vegan-friendly materials’


Earlier this year, May announced his new-found plant-based diet after participating in Veganuary. Since, the musican has often used his platform to advocate a vegan lifestyle.

In an interview with NMEMay say we should be ‘thinking about whether we eat animals’ in the face of COVID-19.

He said: “If you want to get deep into it, I think we should be looking again at whether we should be eating animals. That’s a central issue here.

“This pandemic seemed to come from people eating animals… It’s becoming more well known that eating animals is not the greatest thing for our health.

““But to go vegan was just a decision, and I haven’t been preachy about it. But now, we’ve seen more of the effects of how eating animals has brought us to our knees as a species. I think it’s time to re-examine our world in a way that doesn’t abuse other species.

“Whether we will see that happen, I don’t know. But I think I will start to be a bit more preachy about veganism because to me it is the way forward, in so many ways.”
