Freedom of Animals, dubbed as the“Céline of vegan fashion”, has partnered with PETA to create two limited-edition carryalls in support of the animal-rights group’s lifesaving work. The New York-based label manufactures elegant, cruelty-free bags that are beloved by fashion it-girls such as Anne Hathaway, Kerry Washington, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
In addition to their ethical roots—Freedom of Animals makes its bags in the United States using post-consumer recycled polyurethane “leather,” organic cotton, and vegetable-based dyes—each style represents a stand against a particular act animal cruelty.
A tag on #AnimalsWeGotYourBackpack, a baby-blue knapsack, thanks its owner for foregoing animal skins. #TotesforTilly, a black-and-white carrier, honors SeaWorld’s captive orca Tilikum, who performs daily under duress in the park’s cramped quarters.
“Letting hearts be free is a core value that Freedom of Animals and PETA share, so I couldn’t be more pleased to offer a line of special edition PETA bags,” says Morgan Bogle, founder of Freedom of Animals, in a press release. “This new line will help us reach a wider, fashion-forward audience with the message that there’s simply no need for animals to suffer and die for fashion.”
