This bag is vegan approved by PETA®
Marita Moreno’s Vegan Line is 100% free from use of animals and animal cruelty. For this line we use materials like cork, malai, paper, pinatex, wood or microfiber. Due to being natural products, they may have slight changes in color tone.
Wood is the main material of the bags and clutchs - they are made with wood agglomerate (remains of milled wood added with glue), covered by a sheet of natural wood (giving the beauty of natural wood but we do not use pure wood so as not to encourage cutting trees). The bags are then laser cut and tears are made on the surfaces to give flexibility to the curves; the interior is covered with cork and the handles are made of aluminum - a very light and flexible metal without nickel. The brand logo is engraved on one side.
Cork is a natural material, recyclable, sustainable and vegan, all the little pieces of cork are recycled multiple times - it is light, soft, flexible and easy to clean. We use cork from a Portuguese company, which has a natural forest and plantations of Cork Oak in Alentejo (south of Portugal).
Produced in a unique and ethical perspective way - using only portuguese factories and handmade crafts to create its designs.
Designed and made in Portugal.
