The Little Black Dress of handbags, a tote is an essential for every girl. Why, you ask? Not too big and not too small, they’re easy enough to um, tote around, and they fit all your needs inside. Think: phone, iPad, wallet, make-up bag, keys, hair brush … even a change of clothes if necessary, and absolutely a spare pair of (flat) shoes. Here, you’ll find this season’s greatest vegan totes.

This great all-rounder tote from State of Escape is soft, durable and comes with a bright pop of colour, which we just love. The ideal travel companion, it also comes with an internal pouch to keep valuables safe.


State of Escape can do no wrong in our books.  Its new Premium Guise collection features a beautifully structured neoprene tote that’s directional, functional and available in an array of colours.

Turn heads with this granite print tote from Chuchka. Stylish and luxurious, it’s also super-functional and will keep you organised while you’re on-the-go.
