Hey guys, just wanted to give a quick plug for our friends over at Luca Chiara and share a great promotion they’re running right now – 20% OFF ALL ITEMS WITH CODE LUCA20. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Luca Chiara, they offer high quality vegan bags and wallets that feature slick Italian styling.
Check out the Luca Chiara site or our previous feature for more pics and info. It may be too late to get a sweet vegan billfold for Dad, but this promo is going to last through Father’s Day. Don’t miss out!
Wills does it again! Pictured above is their new unisex Backpack. Made with pebble grain faux leather, this stylish bag looks right at home next to something from Matt and Nat. But we really dig the simplicity and versatility of this one more than any other faux leather bag we’ve seen . As with all Wills products, this is 100% vegan and ethically made in Portugal. It has a front organizer compartment and two interior compartments. We love that the inside is waterproof, in a dope contrast red color. If you’re toting around a laptop, they got you too – this bag fits up to 14″ machines.
Available at Wills for $122 (click on link to site for more pictures too)
Happy New Year everyone! Today we are happy to announce that the winner of our Luca Chiara giveaway is Adi! She is pictured above, sporting the handsome Antonio Weekender which was so kindly made and provided by Luca Chiara. As you can see below, this bag is great for all types of jobs, including carrying around kitties – Dracüla approves! It also just so happens that Adi is a blogger herself, and we highly recommend you check out her site Vegetarian Courtesy. She offers a lot of unique insight into vegetarianism and life in general. She writes in two language, and there’s a lot of sweet artwork.
Greetings world! Here in America, Thanksgiving is over. Now the holiday shopping season is fully in gear with the beginning of “Black Friday” so the fun starts now am I right? But for real, while we don’t want to celebrate consumerism, we can’t ignore all the amazing deals out there. If you need some stuff, now is the time to get it. See below for a list of sales from our favorite brands and stores. We will try to keep these updated up until Christmas, but for now enjoy these post Thanksgiving deals!
Today we are excited to announce a contest – Luca Chiara has partnered with us to give away one Antonio Weekender! This very stylish bag is vegan and PETA approved! The Antonio’s base is made of soft, waterproof synthetic leather. Its straps are industrial strength, box stitched with gunmetal studs for extra protection. The canvas insert (the bag itself) is removable and machine washable. Interior is ripstop nylon. Three small pockets line the interior, as well as a computer/tablet pocket. The bag also comes with an adjustable shoulder strap.
Today we are featuring Luca Chiara, an Italian inspired, vegan shoe and bag label. Founded over 100 years ago, the owner’s great great grandfather opened a shoe store in Italy, then in the US. It was reborn recently in the New York City and Hudson Valley area as an environmentally conscious and animal friendly brand.
Today we have 2015 spring and summer lineup of bags and wallets for men by Matt & Nat. This Montreal based vegan bag label is known for its high end, sophisticated offerings, and this season does not disappoint. Their stuff is beautiful and functional – not for everyone, but perfect for those seeking a certain look.
Today we have a newly re-issued and an an updated bag from our friends at Velo City. As you may remember, we jumped at the opportunity to check out their Roll Top, which spawned a bunch of great photos and a lengthy review. If you want to skip that and get a quick run down, you should know this: Velo City is a bicycle centric bag and accessory maker based in Utah. Everything they make is hand made, vegan, and customizable. And we can say from first hand experience that their products are super functional and of the highest quality. All their products are made to last you for a lifetime, no exaggeration.
But onto the new stuff! Today’s post is about the re-issued Ruck Sack and updated Messenger 2015. We’ll go into each one by one.
Being a blogger has its perks. One of them is that you meet awesome people with similar sensibilities. Another is that you sometimes get free swag. Today’s post involve both situations. [to be fair, everyone who sends us stuff is awesome, smiley face]. Bergiesis a great online shop that sells socks, sock puppets, and slippers. But you don’t go there to get your white tube socks. You go for fun stuff like animal themed socks (which there are many to choose from) and things like CHEWBACCA SLIPPERS.
We go a real treat for you today. A lot of you may already be familiar with Wills Vegan Shoes, and we’ve been big fans since its inception in 2013. It was just what we were looking for: dope vegan shoes, made fair trade, and offered at a very reasonable price. We’ve watched excitedly as they grew – it seems like they add new styles on a weekly basis. We were also lucky enough to get our hands a few pairs, and we were not disappointed. So we are very excited to share an interview with Will Green, the founder of (the eponymous) Wills Vegan Shoes. Plus, check out some of our picks, all in black!
