24 Vegan Designer Bags You'll Want to Secure ASAP

Don't judge me for what I'm about to tell you: I am a sucker for a designer handbag. At least once a week, I'll fall into a rabbit hole where I'm browsing my favorite retailers in search of a secondhand gem or a heavily discounted designer bag. Of course, I'm self-aware enough to understand that my little "hobby" isn't everyone's cup of tea. Some people loathe spending time searching for a stylish shoulder bag or a chic commuter tote. Frankly, it couldn't be me, but I do get why someone would feel that way. Unless you're a self-professed bag expert, it can be challenging to discern what designer bags are worth buying, even more so when you're searching for a sustainable bag option. Luckily, you can always turn to one type of bag in these instances: vegan leather handbags.

Unlike other designer bags that are typically made from animal skins (e.g., leather, suede, and other exotics), vegan leather textiles are made without them. They're an excellent alternative for those who want to ensure that no critters are harmed in the creation of their new go-to carryalls and clutches. Plus, most vegan leather bags require way less maintenance, making them a far more durable option for the long haul. However, if you're unsure of whether this type of bag is actually worth your money, don't fret. Being a proud purse lady, I spent hours perusing the internet searching for the best vegan designer handbags. Keeping in mind brand popularity, quality, versatility, recent trends, and sustainability, I was able to round up 24 vegan leather purses worth purchasing at every price point. Whether you're a bag lady, too, or can barely stand shopping, I've got you covered.
