Why choose vegan leather?
Every day more than 50 million liters (13 million gallons) of toxic wastewater pour out of leather tanneries. Heavy chemicals used to treat leather, like chromium-6, flow into local farming and even drinking water, causing serious environmental and health hazards. Read more here…

What makes a handbag high quality?
Soft yet durable materials that last long
Their handbags are exquisitely designed and attentively crafted by proficient artisans, using EPUL (Exquisite Polyurethane Leather), durable thread, and quality fabric. They process the poly material multiple times in order to attain the softness and smooth texture. They use gold plated hardware to acquire the most elegant look. As well as high-quality zipper closures and magnetic snap-button closures to keep safe your treasured possessions.
Handcrafted with impeccable details
Time and effort that go into designing and creating one handbag is anything but minuscule. Every handbag starts with a hand-sketched idea by Angela and the design team in New York. With the use of modern technology and CAD (3D software) for pattern and sample designing, a handbag starts to take form. They construct a handbag by delicately stitching it piece by piece. It takes about four months to design a new product and another four for sampling. They test all products for at least a month to observe the versatility and performance. As a result, the handbags are a premium modern take on the classics and reach designer quality.
Skilled artisans with experience
Their handbags are a refined result of delicate detailing for months, careful creation and marvelous craftsmanship by skilled artisans and reliable factories in Korea. With their expertise and hard work, the handbags achieve the perfect look, luxury feel and designer quality.

Only using animal-friendly materials
Their love for animals and passion for fashion fueled the idea of chic but vegan handbags. They believed that there is no need for fashion to be cruel, and created one of the most premium vegan handbag brands. They only use non-animal materials to craft the handbags. People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) approved that they are a 100% vegan brand.
