Independent Design • Superior Quality • Ethical Production
We have been asked on several occasions to make a vegan friendly bag and have been in the process of making one for several years. We put in our time trying several different materials but could not come up with anything that we could put our name behind. Our goal was to make something that would last as long as, and behave like the medium we know well, leather.
The other reason that we hesitated in making a vegan bag is that we do not believe that synthetic imitation leather is a good substitute for leather. Most leather alternatives ('vegan leathers') have been criticized for not being environmentally friendly, as they contain plastic/polyurethane and involve toxic processing.
So after a lot of trial and error, we finally we found a canvas that is heavy weight enough to hold the same structure form as leather. The entire bag is made from this heavyweight canvas with a few little detail accents in faux leather to give it some highlight. It features a magnetic closing front pocket, and 2 other zipper pockets. It also comes with a wallet card holder not pictured.
