When choosing to forego leather for a more compassionate lifestyle you don’t need to give up looking good or keeping with the trends.  Faux leather (also called vegan leather) is usually made from polyurethane and can be made to resemble patent leather, textured leather, smooth leather etc.  Why would a vegan or vegetarian want their bag to look like it’s made from animals?  Once people realize that handbags, shoes and accessories can be made with out the use of animal skins and furs but still illicit that sense of style they may be likely to make the switch.  So carrying a stylish bag that may get you compliments can be a way to start a conversation with people who may not know the benefits of ditching their leather goods.  And of course there will always be that situation where you mention you’re vegan and someone feels the need to point out you’re wearing “leather”.

Vegan leather has a come a long way since it’s days as “pleather”, a word which makes most people cringe and think of cheap quality and a plastic-like look.  Take a look at some of our featured vegan bags below.
