Table for 3 – me, him & my Le-Suri bag
New ethical bag brand alert!! Luxury, cruelty free & vegan: I give you Le Suri. I am always on the look out for brands which are kind to the planet & the animals, so when it comes to checking out new sustainable bag brands – I am DOWN.
Spoiler alert – Le Suri does not disappoint – just look at this gorgeous clutch!
Guess what it’s made of? Cork – yes, recycled cork! Le Suri was founded by Nina & Paab who shared a mutual obsession with Portugal (also known as the ‘country of cork’ I have learned) & they noticed that cork had some serious potential to be an eco material. & I agree with them – my Le Suri clutch bag feels smooth and has a really light texture to it – but sturdy enough to carry all your vegan make up essentials for your night out – cause lets face it, your bag does have to be practical.
All of the products used to create one of these bags are organic & equally as important; sourced & produced locally & ethically.
‘Building on European craftsmanship traditions, we are proud to say that all of our products are fully European, manufactured to the highest quality standards and under fair working conditions.’ – Le Suri
Vegan – check. Sustainable – check. Ethical – check. Ok, now we can move on to discussing the actual bag.
‘100% CRUELTY-FREE BRAND.
We are proud to announce that LE SURI has been awarded the official PETA Approved Vegan Certification which guarantees that we do not use any animal-derived materials in the production process and support sustainable fashion movement.’ – Le Suri
From the Le Suri range, I have the ‘Envelope Clutch’ in Natural.

You can see from the pictures, that the clutch is a pretty average size as far as clutch bags go, not too large and bulky, but big enough for the essentials. The bag has a very natural look & feel to it & I love the simplicity of the pattern – it makes the bag versatile & gives you the option to wear it with any color. Another reason I love this clutch is that it can be used for a lunch/day out & it can also join you on a glam date night. The strap has a nice chain which works well with the silver coloring & gives the bag a nice hint of charisma for the evening. I’m so teaming it with silver jewelry & an LBD when my boyfriend comes back.
The bag is very well crafted, I can see no fault. You can tell a lot of care has gone into the production as the lining inside is perfect.
Le Suri has a nice selection of bags available; clutch bags, bucket bags, a satchel (which I am also in love with) & a tote. The colors are all very natural & earthy which I think really reflects the environmental ethics of the brand.
The price for this clutch (it also comes in navy) is 195 Euro, which personally I feel is reasonable for a luxury bag – I have paid more and been much less impressed with other bags if I am being honest. Because the bag is so versatile, you’ll get your moneys worth for sure – I am literally going to be wearing mine 24/7.

The world is changing. Every day more & more ethical brands are be created & more & well-known brands are being pressured by social media & people who care to change their ways. It’s like ‘going green’ & ethical fashion is becoming the new ‘thing’ as more & more people are awakened to the unfair treatment people/animals are subjected too just so we can be ‘fashionable’.
But lets not forget that ethical isn’t a trend. It’s a lifestyle, a moral compass which you use every day when make decisions. Do you want to fund large corporations that exploit animals & other people? Or do you want to invest your money into a brand like Le Suri which shows compassion & respect? Do you want to buy a bag because ‘everyone else has it’ (yawn) or do you want to make your own fashion statement by buying accessories which tell a story?
Thank you Le Suri! I can’t wait to see what this brand does next! Have a fab week everyone & Happy December! Jess xxx
