Nothing excites me more than learning about new brands with a real purpose and a story. There is more to their collections than design and an appealing price tag. They go beyond traditional ways of fabric sourcing and manufacturing. In an aggressive environment where competition is fierce they take it upon themselves to challenge the status quo. They see the bigger picture, they have a long term vision and a they look through the short term profits. So, who are they? Let's take good look!
FREEDOM OF ANIMALS, founded in 2013, is a sustainable and cruelty-free luxury bag line. Their bags are made of post-consumer recycled polyurethane (PU) and organic cotton. Not only is PU more sustainable and safer than its alternatives, it is also free of harsh chemicals. Plus, the process of turning PU into usable fabric is much more eco-friendly. The colors are derived from recycled vegetable dye and the inside is a mix of organic cotton and recycled, plastic water bottles. Even the details are consciously produced since they are made of recycled metal. In short: sleek, chic, recycled piece of art!
"We are not perfect but we aim to better ourselves with time. The vegan spirit of Matt & Nat will live on. Our learning journey has just begun."
It takes strength and courage to admit that you still have a long way to go. And when you do admit it, it can only say one thing: you're up for any challenge! Just like Freedom of Animals, Matt&Nat uses PU for the outer part of their bags and recycled, plastic bottles for the inside. A brand, that loves and respects nature and all of its inhabitants, has created an extensive collection of bags and accessories both for him and for her. Classic shapes, designed with an eye for durability and practicality.
Helping the world one color at the time. Often as a company it's difficult to choose a charity to support, because there are so many and all of them need the extra funds. So how do you pick? Angela Roi supports not 1 but 11 charities! Each charity/foundation has its color. These colors are in line with their collection of bags. So for every handbag that is purchased, the company donates by color to support a charitable cause. Now that's a fresh look on distribution!
Angela Roi is a brand that values customer satisfaction, uses its resources to help the greater community and believes that fashion can have both an artistic and a charitable effect. Their collection of handbags is made of high quality polyurethane (PU), making them completely cruelty-free!
It's only a few days until Christmas, the time is running out and the heat is on! So if you haven't found thé perfect gift, or you simply didn't have time to shop, take a look at the collections of Freedom of Animals, Matt&Nat and Angela Roi! It's a perfect gift for any animal loving, eco-conscious and sustainability-minded partner, friend or family member!
