Vegan fashion is evolving at a rapid rate, and is expected to reach the value of USD 1,095.6 billion by 2027. As one of the fastest growing fashion movements this decade, it’s not surprising that animal-free versions of all the classics are hitting the shelves every day. This is great news for our animal friends, as vegan fashion and accessories are made without leather and other animal skins and furs. And while most clothing is easy to veganise, vegan handbags often come under scrutiny for being made of unsustainable materials like plastic-based PVC.
But thanks to innovative eco-friendly leather alternatives from fruit leather to recycled rubber to cork, more and more ethical brands are creating gorgeous cruelty-free handbags that see you caring for animals and the planet all while complementing your outfit. Read on to discover our top 19 favourite vegan handbags.
