8 Designer Bags That Animals Didn’t Die For


I’m pretty new to the whole ‘vegan’ thing, and although there are many parts of living plant-based that are much easier than I thought, being ethical when it comes to fashion can be quite hard.

I’ve always had a high quality standard for handbags, but my beloved Kate Spade is coming to the end of it’s life and I am was majorly struggling to find a high-quality or designer bag that didn’t require me to be carrying around a dead animal all day long. Luckily, after a long search on the interwebs I managed to find a bunch of great brands that specialise in (or at least include) vegan leather options.


Stella McCartney – Daughter of Paul and Linda McCartney, lifelong vegetarian and iconic fashion designer, Stella McCartney has an extensive range of vegan leather bags and accessories so you can keep up that designer lifestyle without contributing to animal cruelty. Win-win if you ask me!
