By Bec Gregory

We’ve got a thing for LaBante! The London based brand creates luxury vegan leather bags and fashion accessories that are 100% cruelty-free and sustainably produced.

LaBante London combines the finest craftsmanship with ethical excellence to create a luxury vegan fashion brand that has way more than beautiful bags to boast about! With a seductive mix of classic aesthetics and on-trend designs, their conscious collections are helping to create change within the fashion industry.

Founded in 2009, their PETA approved vegan collections are ethically produced and manufactured using recycled, environmentally friendly materials. They tick all our boxes!

Fashion with respect

Founder and CEO Vanita Bagri combined her love for animals and fashion with unwavering ethics and a dedicated commitment to help protect the natural world to create a brand worth backing!

The vegan entrepreneur has built a responsible business driven by the brand philosophy of ‘Fashion with Respect’. Bagri is committed to ethically creating the highest quality cruelty-free bags and fashion accessories and is  “constantly improving production” and “seeking ways to reuse materials” she says.

Over 10.2 million plastic bottles recycled!

LaBante London is making a difference with its ethical and sustainable approach to business. By turning reclaimed single use plastic bottles (PET bottles) into a fabric used for the interior lining of their handbags, they have recycled 10.2 million plastic bottles! This beautiful polyester fabric is made by breaking down single use plastic bottles (PET bottles) into pellets which are then melted, cooled, and spun into yarn. For example, 25 reclaimed plastic bottles are used to line the larger handbags.

Prioritising ethics and sustainability over profits, they exclude the use of non-degradable PVC in their collections. The outers of their bags are made with vegetable by-products and/ or polyurethane (PU). You’ll also find biodegradable apple skin leather in their collections made under a proprietary technology in Italy.

Ethical excellence

LaBante London prioritises the well-being and social welfare of its people at all stages of production, ensuring fair living wages and a harmonious work-life balance. The company conducts regular audits and spot checks to guarantee the production of its bags and accessories in a safe and ethical environment, with all factories holding SEDEX certification.

2. Kensington Crossbody Handbag

We love that if you buy anything from Labante London, you can feel sure it’s going to be 100% vegan! That means no animal based glues, dyes or fabrics are used in any of their products. In fact, Labante London makes all the linings of their bags with recycled materials, and depending on the style, the outer part will feature vegetable by-products and/or polyurethane.

This crossbody bag is no exception! Not only does it feature an elegant design, with its downward pointing ‘arrow’ flat, but we love the double chain, too. Gold hardware ‘feet’ ensure your bag doesn’t get destroyed every time you put it down. This one was made to last!

3. Sophie Tote

There are a lot of vegan tote bags out there today. Some are really basic, made of cotton or hemp. Other fancier bags might use something toxic, like PVC. But not Labante! They never use nasty materials in teir designs, and their classic tote is no exception.

This useful bag is big enough for all your stuff, from laptops to lipsticks. It’s got eight card slots, a zip coin compartment and a note compartment that fits all currencies. I’d say it’s probably one of the bags you’d use the most, if not every single day.

Price: Around $200
