About AVE Bags

Coming from generations of vegetarians/vegans we understand the onerous challenges of finding quality luxury leather free fashion products. Over the last twenty years many of us seeking leather-free have been substituting one problem for another, buying toxic PVC instead of leather.  The future is here, with innovative new products made from cactus that look and feel similar to leather.  Our handbag line takes this one step further, avoiding as many plastics as possible by focusing on plant-based materials.  Our bags are almost entirely made from cactus, cotton, recycled cotton and rice husks.

Why should we reduce our plastic use?  When I was younger plastic bags were rare, and paper bags even rarer.  I used to go to the market with my grandmother cloth bags in hand to fill vegetables.  Nowadays I see plastic bags, gloves and masks on the streets.  Plastics are also fouling our oceans.   Today, many companies produce handbags made from PVB, PVC, nylon and polyester plastics which is making the problem worse.

This inspired the creation of the AVE (All Vegan) Bag brand.  We wanted to create a modern handbag that reminds us all of an era where you can pronounce the names of materials used in fashion.  Did you know that PVC stands for Poly Vinyl Chloride?  AVE is a brand where you don’t worry about toxic tanning chemicals used in leather while having the latest fashions.

Our first product is a Tote bag.  Made to hold your daily essentials.  Made from Plants.  Made for every woman.  Initially available in a rich blue colour.

The approximate measurements of the AVE Tote at the base of the bag are 4.75" deep by 12" wide. The height is approximately 9.75". The height of the strap from the top of the bag is approximately 10.5".
