After lusting over their handbags for months, I finally got to see Gunas‘ handbags up close and personal at their Annual Earth Month Celebration bash. The event was held at Candle 79 (I had never been there, awesome restaurant!) and featured fantastic organic wines and hor dourves. While there, I got to meet the brand’s founder, Sugandh Agrawal and got to talk about cruelty free handbags with her and the rest of the guests for the entire party. It’s a vegan girls dream.
Seeing their collection up close did not disappoint. I love the design aesthetics of their bags. Lots of chains, hardware and studs, which is totally up my alley. There was even one decked out with faux fur. I find although there are a lot of great vegan fashion brands out there, that many of them cater to more of a boho aesthetic, which is not really my style at all. It’s so refreshing to see another brand come along that takes vegan, eco-friendly design in a totally different direction.
I have a lot more to say about Gunas and my favorites, but I’m going to save that for another post. In the meantime, here’s a post full of cruelty free handbag and wallet eye candy for you to feast on.
