Handbag Heaven offers veg-friendly designer-inspired handbags (Pictures)

As a vegan, I have made the decision to not only follow a plant-based diet but also to avoid purchasing any products derived from animals. Finding stylish compassionate bags can be a feat, especially in this day when leather = fashionable. When shopping, vegans know to immediately open a purse and look for the tag that either says "Made with leather" or "Made with man-made materials." Or, if purchasing online, we must look through each item to see what material is used in the making of the item. Enter Handbag Heaven, home to designer-inspired wallets and handbags -- all vegetarian friendly. That means, a worry-free shopping experience for those of us who have said, "Yes!" to compassion.

Unlike many other veg-friendly specialty handbag companies, Handbag Heaven prides itself in offering affordable goods. A quick search of the online store shows 54 items under $25, 52 items in the $26 to $40 category, 132 items in the $41 to $55 category, and 60 items at $56 and above. Additionally, Handbag Heaven stocks 100% of its inventory which means most orders ship within 24 hours.

Rainbow Hemp Messenger | Retail price $55 Sale price $34.95

Handbag Heaven was kind enough to send me the Rainbow Hemp Messenger. From someone who is always on the search for the "perfect purse" I can tell you that, I love this one. I am a cross-body-handbag-kinda gal, not too big, not too small, and as a personal preference, I prefer handbags that don't resemble leather -- the Rainbow Hemp Messenger fits the bill.

While I'm sure you will love looking through Handbag Heaven's sections, I have picked out some additional products that may be of interest.
