9 stylish vegan leather bags that look like the real thing

Over the years, the fashion industry has made strides toward sustainability with the goal of reducing the industry’s collective carbon footprint and preventing cruelty to animals around the world. One of the most popular sustainable trends that designers from Stella McCartney to newcomer Nanushka have carried on in their collections is vegan leather, also known as faux leather.

Vegan leather is an alternative to genuine leather which uses synthetic plastics (polyurethane) or even some vegetable leathers made from pineapple leaves (pinatex) to give the illusion of “real leather”. These designers have proven that sustainable fashion is not only ethical and necessary, but also super stylish.
