THE PETITE SMUGGLER: CRUELTY FREE BELT BAGS MADE WITH LOVE, NOT ANIMALS.
Keep your hands as free as your spirit with a Petite Smuggler. Designed in Melbourne and made with love (not animals), our vegan belt bags are cruelty free and PETA certified. These bags answer to a number of different names — vegan bum bags, for those with 90s nostalgia, cruelty free fanny packs, for our North American comrades. Such is the life of a chameleon handbag. They’re versatile with adjustable bag straps so you can sling them high across your body, or belt them around your waist.
There is a lot of talk about 'vegan leather' nowadays – yet we prefer to recognise that our material is not leather, and to be upfront about it being good quality polyurethane (PU). 40% of our current (2021) collection is in pre + post consumer recycled polyester and PU that is water based + solvent free. These recycled materials are Global Recycled Standard certified.
Aesthetic and tactile pleasures are pivotal to our design process for all our bags, from our vegan backpacks and vegan tote bags to our vegan wallets – yet the technical efficacy of our material is paramount. Our luxe vegan belt bags are painstakingly designed and wear tested, with every detail, inside and out, being considered. We invite you to join the cruelty free revolution.
