Freerangers.

13 Feb

freerangers 3

Freerangers is an awesome vegan shoe, belt and accessory maker based in the U.K. All of their offerings are not only cruelty free but handmade as well. What strikes me the most about Freerangers is how diverse the ‘attitude’ and ‘style’ of their pieces are. There truly is something for everyone.

Their extensive catalog of offerings are all for sale on the net. And yes they do ship to the US. I emailed them to ask if they did and got a super kind reply. I now look forward to placing my order with them. I love handmade, vegan anything, and hand-made vegan fashions are not so easy to come by.

Since everything is made to order, by hand, they do take a bit longer to ship. Keep this in mind if you are planning to buy someone some Freerangers fashions as a gift. Men, women and children are all covered, cruelty-free so get to shopping below…

Gunas is a Sanskirt word that means, ‘attributes and qualities of nature’. With that in mind, Gunas, the company was born. They set off to make  super lux vegan bags for the masses and yes, they bring it hard, for both men and women.

These designer bags are cruelty-free and eco-friendly as well as stylish and luxurious. You kind of can’t go wrong with a Gunas bag, they offer many different bag collections from travel to accessories. They truly got it all covered. Add to all that, their bags are sweat shop free as well.

Gunas bags are bags for people who love fashion but also love the planet and animals. Gunas bags are for people who don’t want to compromise. And no one should ever have to compromise their love of animals for their love of fashion 🙂 This progressive luxury company has also gotten props from PETA, ABC, NBC and TIME Magazine just to name a few.

Peep their goods and learn more about Gunas below…

18 Sep

Viva La Vegan is one of Americas first ‘All Vegan Grocery Stores’ and the biggest one on Earth. This amazing place is located in Rancho Cucamonga, California, just a short drive from the City Of Angels. This place literally carries everything you could ever want in vegan form. Food, vitamins, supplements, books, snacks even shoes. They recently expanded the store to make even more room for their surplus of vegan goodness.

This slice of heaven is founded on the vegan principals and founded with passion. So besides shopping cruelty-free you are also supporting people who are truly doing something they love, spreading the vegan lifestyle. Unfortunately, if you live as far from Cali as I do then just stopping by Viva La Vegan is sadly not an option 😦  Have no fear though, you can order anything your heart desires right off their website and have it delivered to your door step.

Get to shoppin…

Shop Here: Vaute Couture.

28 Jul

The amazing high-end, Eco-friendly vegan company, Vaute Couture, has recently opened its flagship store in Brooklyn, New York. If you don’t know about Vaute Couture I will give you a brief run down…Very well made coats for both men and women, all fabrics are Eco friendly and all coats are made by hand here in the USA.  Recently they have also been venturing into other forms of vegan clothing such as dresses and t-shirts which you can peep at their store in Williamsburg. Vaute’s whole store is also vegan and eco-friendly. They used old mannequins from Abercrombie, a wrap desk from Barney’s, left over paint, lockers that were once used at a school and they used old doors from ‘Build It Green’ to create their photo booth and wardrobes.

I own a Vaute Couture winter coat and I LOVE IT SO MUCH that when I moved last month I refused to pack it into a box with my other coats. I actually didn’t even pack it period, it just rode in the back seat of my car that way I could keep my eyes on it to be sure it arrived as perfectly as it departed from my old house. That is the power of  Vaute Couture jacket and I am not the only one who feels like this 😉

Vaute Couture. 234 Grand Street. Btw Driggs Ave and Roebling St. Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC 11211. Open Tuesday-Sunday 1pm-8pm.
