Stella McCartney

Many websites make the mistake of listing the Stella McCartney brand as vegan.

The whole brand is not vegan, this page reveals they still use silk, wool and cashmere but their leather is “vegetarian” and cruelty free, but interestingly they don’t use the word vegan when describing it.

We’d recommend for each product you check the materials list to be sure its 100% vegan.

Angela Roi

We love their statement “For too long, fashion has demanded sacrifice: Of comfort for style, of money for quality and of morals for materials.” – Angela Roi calls themselves “no-sacrifice fashion brand” and they bring affordable vegan bags and purses that are unmatched by many.

At just $55 for their purses, free fast shipping, easy returns and the option to pay over up to 4 interest-free payments, it makes their products as accessible as possible.

Hetty + Sam

These purses and wallets for men and women carry your daily essentials wrapped in luxury vegan leather. The vegan leather used is silk grain polyurethane. Bonus points are given for the fact they use the environmentally friendly polyurethane instead of PVC (which contains the toxic chemical chlorine).

You get to be both organised and stylish with these multiple card compartments. You also get to support the artist whose design adorns the purse, as a proportion of the sale goes directly to them.
