Interested in vegan bags? Let me show you some beautiful vegan bags out there.
In my piece on is leather eco-friendly, I touched on many issues as to why leather isn’t great for the environment. From toxic heavy metal chemicals used in the tanning process to large-scale deforestation, increased methane levels, and animal cruelty issues.
This implies that leather alternatives are eco-friendly, but in the same article I touched on the issues with PVC and PU leather alternatives. These fossil-fuel based products aren’t friendly to the environment or to the workers.
As such, I have been looking out for greener vegan friendly bags.
Skunkfunk’s Vegan Bags
I feel like I hit the jackpot with Skunkfunk. They have a range of beautiful bags, available in the UK. And not only are Skunkfunk bags vegan, but Skunkfunk is big on sustainability too:
Skunkfunk tote bag (£39)
Skunkfunk hand bag (£55) (be still my beating heart!
Satchel bag (£37)
Cross body bag (£65)
You get free returns and delivery, and what’s more, if you sign up to the newsletter you get £10 off when you first spend £50. That makes that pretty handbag £45… Hmm…!
Matt & Nat Bag’s
I came across a brand called Matt & Nat. Their vegan bags are a bit pricier but very stylish and classically timeless, and they are trying to be more sustainable in their operations too:
Grey Tote Bag (£95)
Brown Tote Bag (£95)
Brown Tote Bag (£85)
Green Shoulder Bag (£70)
It’s been quite a tough job tracking down vegan-friendly bags that are also a bit greener in their production. If you come across any do let me know, as I plan to update this post as I find more bags that fit the bill.
