10 eco-responsible trendy bags that we will keep for life!

We just love bags. There you have it.

A bag is more than an accessory, it holds a part of our “life”.  We adapt it to our style and mood of the day. Today at VEPSI, we have decided to share with you 10 essential bags, all eco-friendly, that you can shop right now on our shop.

1. Rattan bags
(for a Jane Birkin look)



It’s a must-have. Yes, even the purists-minimalist will agree that a rattan bag is really one of those pieces you need to have in your wardrobe. The Merapi rattan bag can be worn daily, it brings a little vintage touch to your outfit and goes well with casual looks while being feminine and chic.

We love wearing it on our Sunday trips.




2. Shoulder bags
(for the evenings)

Convenient and glamorous

This 100% vegan bag adds a glamorous touch to your evening outfit. Small, it is very handy for evenings. The dance floor is all yours with this little bag that will complete your look.  Pick this Monarch golden bag for more extravagance! Whether you are vegan or not, love, at first sight, is guaranteed.




Convenient and ethnic chic

Do you prefer ethnic and exotic bags to anything that shines? Don’t worry, we have what you need on VEPSI. In an eco-responsible version of course. This mini yellow shoulder bag… A bag made in a small atelier in Marrakech.

3.  Boho crochet bags
(for boho girls)



Ethnic cool and a little boho – the crochet bags made in Colombia shade the rest of the outfit, which is good news: no need to worry about your look, this bag takes care of everything! A real alternative to not-so-eco-responsible brands, we love Mo’chillin bags. These bags are modern, graphic and original, they will be the highlight of your outfit. 

Impact guaranteed!



4. The backpacks
(for convenience and comfort)

Do you remember your old backpacks?  How practical it was to carry everything you needed?  To sustainable backpacks for all tastes, we say yes. At VEPSI, we found some backpack gems. 



Elegant and Parisian chic

A backpack as chic as a handbag is possible. Embrace backpacks are made by hand #MadeInFrance and are available in 3 colours.





City working girl

The “Lou” backpack: in addition to its perfect leather quality, it is ideal and resistant for everyday use.




The Sycamore, eco-friendly and vegan, is made of 100% recycled materials. Practical and lightweight for everyday use.

And of course, to satisfy everyone, you can choose the Miley backpack, vegan, the perfect combination of style and comfort.



5. The luxury handbag
(for the eco-princesses)

Luxury made in France and eco-responsible, a real alternative to Celine and Chloé bags, thanks to their exceptional design, quality materials (leather, wood, piñatex), and a wide colors range available.
(above the LOV Camel bag and below the Woody and Woody Charcoal bags)  

6. The diaper bag
(for parents who kick ass)


As a parent, you have the right to be supplied with a handy and stylish bag in any circumstance.

The perfect baby diaper bag for all parents looking for environmentally friendly products: the “Darcy” baby diaper bag. It has all the qualities: it is made from recycled and zero waste products, by a company that promotes upcycling and gender equality.

And yes dads, this message is also for you!


7.  The handbag
(for the working girl)





We love it especially for its classic, functional and timeless design. Ideal for the chic working girl, in the Aricia Black bag you can put everything in it even your laptop and above all it is vegan!


8. The clutch
(for a light weight night out)



The must-have accessory for evenings and celebrations to go out in a lightweight atmosphere: the clutch. VEPSI offers you a varied choice of clutch bags made from silk scraps. There is a variety for all tastes.

Sustainable and graphic!

9. The bucket bag
(for the trendy girls)




No need to go to Lancel to get a beautiful bucket bag. It can be worn both on the shoulder and cross-side, this bag brings joy to your outfit. The Kari is a 100% vegan bag made from apple skin leather, a true innovation! 


10.  The “belt” bag
(for lovers of the “cool look”)




This JORID hip bag is available on VEPSI in several equally beautiful colours. It’s an original and eye-catching piece that everyone will envy! A vegan bag made of apple skin leather. 

Trendy and environmentally friendly, everything we love! The alternatives exist and VEPSI helps you find them.
