Sometimes faux-leather looks a little too….leathery. While it is always nice to have a high quality fashionable bag, many people just aren’t comfortable with mimicking animal hide. Bags made from fabrics and other obviously non-skin materials are just as cute and send the right message to passers-by. Here are 10 companies that think fashion can look cruelty free and still be fabulous! (A special thanks to the ever-amazing Lily Balfour for the idea and writer’s block rescue!)
