1. The pop of colour
All black? Not necessarily. The Labante Sophie Vegan Leather Tote Bag in Forest Green is a discreet way to make a statement with colour. The deep forest green is perfect for autumn's earthy colour palette. Wear it with a pared-back ensemble to let the shade truly shine.
2. The relaxed weekend style
Slouchy yet refined, the Watson & Wolfe Maddox Vegan Leather Tote Bag in Rust & Emerald is made from eco-conscious corn-based leather. No chromium or PPD were used in the making of this sustainable tote, which will look chic with a pair of boyfriend jeans and loafers.
3. The office bag
Get ready to face lots of questions from colleagues about where your bag comes from. The A_C Official Tote Modern Vegan Cactus Leather Bag in Black is the ultimate in 9-5 sleekness. The Desserto cactus leather used in this bag is less water-intensive and also reduces plastic waste compared to animal skins or petroleum-based faux leathers. Wear with crisp tailoring.
