* Faux-leather travel bags that are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free
* Enjoy the stylish look of leather without the guilt of where it came from
* These Sole Society pieces are ideal as weekend, overnight and carry-on bags
Just because you don’t like how something is made, doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate how great it looks. Items sporting animal fur and leather are widespread throughout the fashion world. While such items are not vegan, many people who would rather not wear such cruel items still appreciate their style.
For this reason, the popularity of faux items is soaring. Replacing leather and fur with artificial, eco-friendly sourced materials that look like the real thing, these items look great without the guilt. In particular, Sole Society has developed a line of cruelty-free, vegan travel bags that we’re drooling over. Here are the 4 best faux leather options that are both functional and stylish at the same time, and they all come without a hint of animal-sourced materials.
1. Sole Society Cassidy Duffel
The Sole Society Cassidy Duffel is just the right size for a weekend getaway. It could also act as a carry-on bag for any vacation. The Cassidy features both an adjustable strap and double handles to give you a choice of carrying options and also comes in four different colors: new black, taupe, cognac and Bordeaux. Inside the zip-top bag, you’ll find a number of pockets and a central compartment that’s ideal for clothing and other larger items.
2. Sole Society Mason Weekend Bag
Available in a choice of cognac or pebbled black, the Sole Society Mason Weekend Bag is a simple way to stay stylish during your short trips away. Not only does the modern design feature tassel zippers, a removable and adjustable strap as well as a luggage tag, the bag’s interiors feature a fun leopard print. For maximum functionality, the bag has a lower level compartment for your shoes and also boasts an exterior pocket and interior zip and smartphone pockets for added convenience and safety.
3. Sole Society Lacie Duffel
One of Sole Society’s most popular bags, the Lacie Duffel is as versatile as it is stylish. It could act as a simple overnight bag, a super chic gym bag or a weekend trip carry on. The simple design reminds one of a traditional duffel bag, but the faux leather exterior adds the classic Sole Society style.
In addition, the shoulder strap and interior pocket make using the bag convenient, while the massive interior means you can pack as much or as little as you need. And, unlike the other bags on this list, the Lacie adds flirty straps in a lighter, tan color.
4. Sole Society Cory Travel Tote
Never pay extra for a checked bag again with the Sole Society Cory Travel Tote. Roomy enough to carry clothes for a weekend or longer, this travel tote still remains within the carry-on specifications of most airlines. Top carry handles as well as an adjustable shoulder strap mean you can move through the airport with ease. Plus, the chic black, faux-leather exterior is stylish and functional all at once. You’ll look like a travelpro the next time you board the plane with this vegan, cruelty-free bag.
