Bagarama! All Kinds of Vegan Bags For Fall

This article may use affiliate links. Eluxe Magazine only links to products we trust.

By Annie Gillman

While summer lets us get away with using baskets and canvas totes to sling over our bare shoulders, autumn calls for an altogether more serious bag. We need something sturdy for work or school and the gym (which seems to get harder to hit the shorter and darker the days grow).  But finding a bag we love that’s also vegan and eco friendly can be a real struggle, especially given how polluting vegan leathers can be.

But never fear – after a long search, I’ve found 15 vegan bags for fall that suit any colder weather outfit, and occasion.

1. The Ladylike Bag

Betty Draper would be proud to place this in the crook of her arm, and would probably have matching gloves, too. But this bag is actually named after Betty White, for her work as an animal activist, the Miss Betty top handle bag by Gunas makes a beautiful, feminine addition to any closet, and its simple silhouette is so classic that it will never go out of style.

2. The Vegan Investment Bag

Girls, it could only be one bag under this title – the very most favourite bag of them all for vegans and non-vegans alike: the Falabella. If you’re looking for a comfortable, cruelty-free classic that rocks a pair of jeans as well as a work outfit, this is the one. It inspires envy from anyone with eyes, and comes in all kinds of sizes and colours, too.

3.  The Funky Furry Bag

When I first heard of fur bags, I thought: seriously? I mean, how warm do your credit cards need to be? Of course, it’s also repulsive to think that animals are being killed for such frivolity. But when Veganni came up with this fun shoulder bag, I was  sold.  Made from 100% recycled materials including plastic bottles, this is the kind of bag you want cuddled up on your lap whilst you sip coffee in your favourite hangout.

4. The Stylish Backpack  

Backpacks are a huge trend this season, and what better way to jet about than with the sleek and sophisticated best-selling backpack from JW PEI? Not only is it practical with its generous size (perfect for your laptop) and adjustable strap, but it’s super comfy and made from luxurious vegan leather giving it a buttery soft finish. 100% cruelty-free and lighter than other similar vegan bags on the market, this is as gorgeous as it is practical.

5.  The Ideal Clutch

Vegan patent leather is often made of very toxic PVC, but not this glossy  Jill Milan bag.  Chic and sleek, it’s just as suitable in the office as it is for after work drinks. With separate interior pockets for money and  mobile, this is a practical purchase that will appeal to fashionistas and animal lovers alike – especially as Jill Milan provides support to animal welfare organisations with a percentage of every sale.

6.  The Winged Shopper

What’s more on trend right now than a winged vegan leather bag?   This chic tote gives off such an elegant look with its LaBante logo and gold hardware plaques. Grey may not be a fall colour you would go for, rest assured however, this vegan bag made of recycled materials is a stunning option for day or evening wear. The PETA approved vegan brand, Le Bante, brings out a new collection every single season and only ever uses ethically sourced materials for the bags.

7. The Practical Backpack

A Matt and Nat cork backpack is perfect for squeezing in all your work and school supplies. Made of cork and 100% recycled nylon lining, this bag proves Matt and Nat’s commitment to being sustainable as well as using natural detailing. Founded in 1995 in Montreal, Matt and Nat aren’t actually the designers; the name stands for Mat(t)erial and Nature.

8.    The Sweet Satchel

Preppies unite! Wilby has created an entirely eco friendly bag with this  V shaped vegan satchel  in a neutral shade. Great for casual wear, it somehow reminds us of one of our fave movie characters ever: Cher from Clueless – sweet!

9. The Chic Shoulder Bag

An 88 handbags vegan friendly shoulder bag that fits all your essentials and more is just what every woman needs. The simple yet sophisticated shape  is a classic, with its gold chain  and geometrically embossed vegan leather. Having released their 2016 fall collection, 88 Handbags, who are PETA approved, have introduced loads of new styles and colours into their ever-growing collections.

10. The Bag for Girls Who Lose Bags

If you’re at all like me, many times in life, after meeting with friends for a lovely dinner, chatty cafe session or a night out, you’ve simply forgotten your bag. You’ve just left it behind. You smack your forehead with your palm and say ‘not again!’ whilst hoping to God no one has used your contactless credit card to go on a small booze and smokes purchasing spree…

Such things will never happen again with this incredible bag made by Ood, and made of wood! Yes, really. This sweet clutch comes with a bracelet that attaches the bag directly to your wrist. Let the cockail hour begin!

11.  The Slouchy Tote

Free People’s vegan Bardot tote back is hungry. It wants your books. Your makeup. Your laptop. Your shopping. You name it! It’s big, it’s basic, and it’s in a gorgeously neutral blush. We could totally see passionate vegan Brigitte Bardot, for whom the bag is named, toting this around the cafes of Paris in her heyday.

12.  The Funky Fringe

Fringe  is a huge trend for autumn,  and this stylish Stella McCartney Falabella faux suede  bag embodies it well. Highly skilled manufacturing techniques were used for this bag, and it shows. As for materials, Stella McCartney bags are all of a high sustainable quality- the bags will be made from non-leather cruelty-free materials, the logos will be made from recycled polyester, the cotton will always be organic and the lining is derived from recycled plastic.

13.  The Beautiful Bucket Bag

This looks almost exactly like real leather, but never fear – ASOS have made this gorgeous bucket bag from 100% pure vegan-friendly materials. We’re particularly enamoured with the braiding detail and the fringed tassels.

 14. The Ultimate Vegan Gym Bag

We just discovered Sole Society, and tbh, we’re freaking out. It’s a great site for chic vegans searching for shoes, bags, and accessories. This sturdy, well constructed bag is but one of many, many styles you can choose from on their website – great for the gym or a weekend away.

15. The New Bum Bag

Say whaaat, right? But yep, it’s true – the bum bag is back in a big way, thanks to Hipsters for Sisters. To be fair, they call them  ‘belt bags’ and they’re actually meant to be slung around your hips, but the convenience of the good ol’ fanny pack is still there. Of course these are 100% vegan friendly, and they’re also ethically made in Los Angeles. Perfect for travelling, or a night out – no need to throw your bag on the dance floor; you can wear this whilst you boogie, with no lost keys and credit cards the next day. Perfect!

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
