Vegan handbags are undoubtedly getting not only more eco-friendly, but more glamorous, too.
Take Stewart/Stand, for example. Their stainless steel clutches have space for everything you need, from credit cards, lipstick, keys and change, but are refined and elegant, created from a shimmery, silvery stainless steel. Light reacts with the reflective nature on the surface, creating a dramatic dance of shadow and light on these fashionable wristlets.
They also come housed in elegant boxes, and carry a plethora of other benefits and qualities, including:
- Full sustainability, since they’re made with 85%+ post consumer recycled stainless steel.
- Being 100% vegan friendly.
- Protection from ID theft.
Yep, you read that right. This wallet is fully lined with a light, refined stainless steel textile, which means every credit card will be protected from the growing threat of RFID theft, as this luxurious interior blocks unauthorized transmission from RFID enabled credit cards & IDs.
Not sure what that even means? Basically, RFID theft is also known as wireless identity theft or contactless identity theft. It happens when your personal information from things with chips in them, like passports or credit cards, are read by wireless (radiofrequency) mechanics. According to Marc Rotenberg of the Electronic Privacy Information Center, wireless identity theft is “a pretty serious issue” and “the contactless (wireless) card design is inherently flawed.” It’s a pretty serious issue, and a form of theft that you may not even be aware of, until it’s too late.
In short, the Stewart/Stand brand is one of the first that’s not only eco-friendly, vegan-friendly and super-glamorous, but also one that protects your identity through their unique designs and materials. For more information, please click here.
