Vegan Handbag Brands

The term Vegan and fashion have not always gone so well together, with many high fashion brands opting for Leather, Suede, fur and even Reptile Skins deeming them “luxury materials”, Vegan’s have often turned their back on the fashion world.

Now that Veganism is becoming more popular and even considered “trendy” by some, this popularity has provided the opportunity for Vegan fashion brands to emerge.

Gunas a High Fashion Vegan Label that has been featured in Vogue and Glamour was founded by Sugandh G. Agrawal and her message is very simple.

Animals are NOT meant to be a part of fashion. We can look and feel good without harming other living beings. We need to connect our selves with what goes on behind the scenes and question our actions and their impacts.

Additionally Gunas also care about the people who make their bags and so no Gunas bag will ever be made through slave labour in Sweatshops.

A luxury vegan and sustainable handbag brand made from Cork that comes from the bark of the cork oak tree in Portugal. Cork trees can live up to 300 years and Eve Cork employs farmers in Portugal (as this is mostly where Cork tree’s grow) to harvest the cork every 9-10 years. This process actually helps the trees to grow faster and live longer.
