Recently, I saw a notable stylist make an announcement on Instagram—she was donating all of her leather bags. After years of practicing a vegan diet, she wanted to extend that mentality to other parts of her life, including her fashion choices. That meant donating any leather purses and keeping only vegan bags. Her change made us curious: Where can we find the best faux-leather bags on the market?

Designers like Stella McCartney have built their fashion empires around sustainable and vegan fashion, and always offer luxury bags. But other retailers like Mango and Topshop are also great sources for leather-free bags. With interpretations on the latest styles from the runways, they’re also a great source for fashion-forward bags. Whether you’re after a retro box bag, a bucket style, a backpack, or a shopper tote, we’ve rounded up the best faux-leather purses that pass for the real thing.
