Vegan Handbags You Can Feel Good About Buying

Handbags are the quintessential accessories we carry with us everywhere that hold our most valuable belongings. While they play an essential role in our wardrobe and our daily lives, the choices we make when shopping for a handbag affect more than just our outfit. The fashion industry can be pretty irresponsible when it comes to animal rights and protecting the environment, and if you’re a shopper who cares about the impact your wardrobe decisions have on both animals, and the environment, you’ll want to shop wisely.

Vegan handbags not only work to take a stand against animal cruelty within the fashion industry, they help promote the use of sustainable production practices for our favorite accessories. If you want to shop for vegan handbags that you can feel good about buying, Peccadilly is the place.

Animal cruelty facts that will make you want to shop for vegan fashion

Most handbags are made of leather, and unfortunately, much of that leather isn’t properly labeled, which means as a consumer you have no idea where it truly came from. In 2013 China was the leading exporting nation of leather goods with an export value of over 30 billion US dollars. In most areas of China animal welfare laws are non-existent and there is no penalty for those who abuse animals. As the leading exporter, if you have unlabeled leather hanging in your closet, it’s likely that it came from China, a country with no respect or laws to protect animal rights.

The fur industry is also notorious for the mistreatment, and in many cases, torture of innocent animals, especially in India and China. 85% of the fashion industry’s fur comes from animals in fur factory farms where living conditions are treacherous, and horrifying acts like electrocution, neck-breaking, and poisoning by strychnine are used to brutally kill innocent animals. Fur factory farms push the welfare of animals aside to preserve the animal’s skin and fur for the sake of fashion.
