OUR (SANS BEAST) TAKE ON 'VEGAN LEATHER' BAGS + WALLETS.
Made with love, not animals. Sans Beast vegan bags + wallets are designed to look distinctive, offer practical function in your busy life (hello pockets) + not harm our fellow earthlings. Designed in Melbourne and ethically made in southern China, our pieces are 100% cruelty free and PETA certified — so you don’t have to compromise on your values.
You hear a lot about 'vegan leather bags' nowadays – yet we prefer to recognise that our material is not leather, and to be upfront about it being polyurethane. Aesthetic and tactile pleasures are pivotal to our design process for all our bags – yet the technical efficacy of our material is paramount. Most of our collection is constructed from a good quality polyurethane (PU) with an increasing proportion (40% of our collection in 2021) in pre + post consumer recycled polyester and PU that is water based + solvent free. These recycled materials are Global Recycled Standard certified. We also have cactus leather handbags and continue to pursue more non leather alternatives.
From our vegan backpacksand cruelty free totes, to our vegan wallets and bag straps, our luxe vegan bags are painstakingly designed and wear tested, with every detail inside and out being considered. We are on a constant journey to introduce new materials to our collection, and whilst we know that synthetics are not always popular, they are far less damaging to the environment than the majority of animal derived leathers. And as far as ethics go, it's our view that mass slaughter of sentient beings is not ethical.
Sans Beast is for style seeking animal lovers everywhere.
