I love handbags! I love looking at all the links here but I don’t want to buy anything anymore that isn’t kind to animals.

I’ve looked at laBante, Stella McCartney Vegan, Matt and Nat and Wills Vegan Shoes but would love recommendations for a gorgeous mini-bag for nights out.

I’m in the process of changing all mine over to vegan, cruelty free. Definitely interested in this thread.

I need a new pair of smart knee high boots.

Is vegan I love the one I have it's a big shoulder bag that fits A4 note book as well as laptop.

Have you seen Inyati bags? They are beautiful vegan bags.

I love Paperthinks, they're not vegan exactly but they make everything from recycled leather, which is brilliant.

Adolfo Dominguez have lovely non leather bags.

Matt and Nat are vegan
Some lovely styles
I really need vegan wide fitting flat ankle boots and knee high boots
I have wide toes and high arch
All the vegan styles are standard fitting
Can’t stand my toes rubbing

I'm a vegetarian (not vegan)

I use Kipling bags (have to double check them now , some of their 'Premium' range have leather on the straps)
I have a couple of Mai Tui bags ( a zipped pouch and one called 'Molly' which is more a wristlet on a long strap)

Shoes are mainly M&S - I have some knee length boots from there
I do have very narrow feet so they suit me .
I know there's non leather Doc Martens but they wouldn't suit my feet (hypermobile)

they're not vegan exactly but they make everything from recycled leather erm , I think that's classed as not vegan in the slightest but it is ethical in the recycling /

And , while I;m on here blethering - Beauty Products that are "Vegan" are not neccesarily Cruelty Free . It just contains no byproduct (lanolin, honey , beeswax etc)

A lot of bags that are marketed as vegan are just plastic. hmm
What I would like to see more of is canvas.

Yeah, pleather , leather substitute . My MaiTui small bag could pass for leather on sight (but I know it isn't)
What I would like to see more of is canvas - my Kipling bags are nylon or canvas . Not glamorous in the least , but hard wearing and I can wash them !.

Thanks to those for recommending Mai Tui - I’ve finally decided to order the ‘Molly’

All other vegan suppliers of clothing and accessories welcome!
