Luxury bags are usually associated with the use of leather derived from different animals. As more people get to know more about the vegan lifestyle, many are starting to turn to brands that practice fair working practices and use animal cruelty free materials. There are even those who go as far as clearing their closets from items that donâ€™t go along their beliefs.
When it comes to cruelty free designer bags, there are countless items that you can choose from. Some are even so fancy and durable that you wouldnâ€™t think that they are completely free from animal by-products.
From office bags to regular backpacks, you can now find brands with a specific collection solely made from synthetic materials and there are 100% vegan brands you can always turn to.
