From break out new brands to old favourites, shopping for a new season vegan bag never felt this good.
There was a moment in time when listening to friends talk about being vegan was considered a chore. But the world is moving ever-forward and with it, so is veganism.
We are more aware than ever that so many aspects of our earth, including the animals used to make our accessories, are on a tipping point. Fashion brands have taken heed of this message in 2019 more than ever before, and brands like Chanel, Gucci, Burberry and Versace no longer working with exotic animal skins.
Other brands are taking that ethos a step further by only offering vegan leather options when it comes to their accessories. And these aren’t just any old brands, these are some of fashion’s most prolific, most desired brands like Stella McCartney and Nanushka.
So, whether you’ve been plant-based for a number of years, or just feel like doing something good for the world, Stylist has rounded up the bags guaranteed to make you look and feel better.

Nanushka has been holding court as one of the buzziest brands for quite some time, teetering on the edge of cult status and much of that has to do with their super cool offering of vegan leather accessories.
