Our first vegan handbag
From juicy grape to vegetable leather
Since day one, almost five years ago, sustainable choices have been at the heart of Lies Mertens' practice. The next challenge is to become less dependent on animal products and by-products. After all, the environmental and climate impact of our livestock farming today, and therefore of leather, is too great. A thorough search for a worthy alternative led us to VEGEA.
Friend of the brand and sustainability expert Laurens De Meyer explains what VEGEA stands for and why it is an excellent alternative.
We design every bag to be timeless. To be a long-term ally, regardless of fashion trends or seasons. In line with your ambition to contribute to slow fashion culture. On your way to work or a wine tasting, your Lies Mertens bag will always be by your side.
