88 handbags is a collection of bags that are on trend, that look great, and that just work. Our new spring collection is filled with bright colors and unique styles. Our goal was to create a collection of bags that enhance our customer’s life by helping them look good while working hard to carry all the things they need. Our bags are designed to help express individual style, and most importantly, to be useful during the daily adventures of life. These bags are created by people who love what they do, and who do it well!
88 is a vegan brand, which means no animal products are used in the making of our bags. Our founder is a life long vegetarian, who believes strongly in the brand’s vegan message. Various vegan leathers are used in production. The scientific names are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride). Although it may be more expensive on the back end, these bags are carefully crafted to be less harmful on the environment.
88 donates a percentage of every sale to a charity that assists in educating women around the world. We believe that educating women is the key to a better world. We are also starting a new campaign that will allow us to partner with different Vegan organizations. Great news for the vegan community!
