About

Fashion at Heart. Function & Sustainability at its Core.

 

Vie Verte (pronounced Vee Ver, French for Green Life) stands to create versatile luxury Vegan bags that are designed for modern life. At Vie Verte, we don’t believe in trends. We believe in creating timeless pieces that last. We intersect sophisticated design with function so that our bags can seamlessly flow to wherever life may lead you.
The brand was created out of the need for handbags that did not compromise on function or style, is cruelty-free, sustainable, and is of the same high quality as luxury brands. 

Our Mission

 

Founded by Marine Corps Veteran, Nikki Vazquez, our mission is to make quality handbags more accessible and contribute to reducing the waste in the fashion industry which is why our bags are carefully crafted in small batches. We continuously strive to find ways to minimize our footprint, and to find & use the best cruelty-free sustainable materials.  We only partner with factories that are committed to sustainability, takes great pride in their craftsmanship, and treats their workers fairly. 

As a member of 1% for the Planet we are committed to donating a portion of our proceeds to various environmental and social nonprofits such as The Karen Beasley Sea Turtle Hospital and Operation Pretty Things. 

 

Our Materials: Sustainable & Made to Last

 

Our handbags are made with high-quality Polyurethane that is scratch and water resistant. The interiors are lined with recycled plastic bottles and all the hardware we use is lead and nickel free. 

We constantly strive to find new innovative sustainable materials. For example, we are currently in the process of testing new materials such as recyclable silicone-based leather and materials made from the waste of the food industry such as Pinatex (made from Pineapple fibers) and Apple leather.
