8 of the Best Vegan Handbags

If you’re on the fashion pulse, you may have already heard whispers of celebrity designer and PETA supporter Meg Mathews’ collaboration with high-end vegan accessories label Wilby this month.

Her collection is the latest in fabulous cruelty-free accessories, and to celebrate, here are eight super-stylish bags from companies that have signed up to be a part of the brand-new “PETA-Approved Vegan” scheme. Whether you’re after an oversized tote, a cutesy clutch or a non-nonsense shoulder bag, there’s something here for everyone!

  1. Wilby Yellow Citibag:

    We love the edgy texture and vibrant colour of this chic clutch.
  7. Cosi Cosi Fashion Tiziana:
    Can you believe that the material for this bag is made from 100 per cent recycled plastic bottles?

All of these bags are 100 per cent PETA-approved, so you can shop with absolute confidence. These brands have made the commitment to fighting cruelty to animals, and we’re with them all the way!

Of course, no list of vegan bags would be complete without something from the legendary Stella McCartney, so last but certainly not least:

  1. Stella McCartney Beckett Mini Bag:
    Chic and sustainable, this bag comes in classic grey or delightfully summery hot pink.


If you’re looking for animal-friendly accessories closer to home or on a budget, there are also some great options available on the high street, thanks to Accessorize, ASOS, Topshop and others – just be sure to double-check the label before you buy. Happy cruelty-free shopping!

    Why should any animal suffer or be killed for human fashion

    Thanks so much for the links to these fab bags. I particularly love the Cosi Cosi website and it’s now saved to my favourites. I think I’ll treat myself to one of their Tiziana, Lorena or Romina bags for my upcoming birthday. In fact why stop at one! I’ve never seen such a website where ALL the bags are to my taste as well as vegan. Bravo Cosi Cosi.
