This timeless American brand values quality and simplicity. Their handbags are designed in Evansville, Indiana, and made in Chicago, Illinois using only the best materials like leather, cloth, and hardware. You can really tell that they put a lot of thought into their designs and the products are made to last. 

The K. Slade Brooklyn Foldover was created to be classy and compact but also functional. This lightweight bag is ideal for carrying credit cards, cash, and other essentials. The foldover is just a single pouch with pebble black leather on the outside and a light cream-colored liner on the inside. 

It features a contrast between the deep black leather exterior and the brilliant gold zipper and pulls. The bag is 100% made in the USA. And, you can even customize it with a small monogram in the lower right corner during purchase. (For a small added cost.) This bag could work well for everyday carry inside a larger bag.

MOHOP Iridescent Vegan Leather Tote

In a world overrun by mass production and consumerism, Mohop emerged as a beacon of hope in 2005. With a mission to spread joy and positivity, they sought to challenge the exploitative manufacturing systems that plague our planet. They believe that true beauty lies in the art of craftsmanship, and are dedicated to creating products that reflect this belief. Plus, they have a strong commitment to ingenuity and sustainability at the heart of everything they do.

This purse is *chefs kiss*. It was designed and made by an artist, an architect, and their advanced machines. They used this super fancy vegan iridescent leather that looks and feels incredible. Plus, the lining is soft vegan suede. The shoulder strap is faux leather and has a 9.5″ drop that’s really comfy. And the hardware is super hardcore, so you know it’s gonna last. Our fav part? The size is perf for hitting the gym, and the color matches pretty much any athleisure outfit

Best of all, it’s totally cruelty-free and made with responsible practices, so we know you’re gonna love it! They have a wild choice of color options, like scarab that is a bright yellow, to ruby red, emerald green, and pewter. Even black chinchilla (it’s a pattern, not actual chinchilla fur), silver crocodile (again… a pattern, not actual crocodile skin), pewter, and copper.

Von Holzhausen “The Sac” Crossbody

The Los Angeles-based brand has very high standards, which we can all relate to. Each product is hand-crafted by a master artisan with each material being 100% vegan and ethically made. The brand focuses on sustainability as much as durability. Fun fact: they collaborated with Tesla using their Banbū Leather for the interior of vehicles. Truly showing that their leather can take a rough beating. 

The Sac crossbody is 100% vegan, eco-friendly, and cruelty-free, which is a win in our book. Its unique shape is spacious enough to hold laptops up to 13 inches. It has an interior magnetic closure, a drawstring that you can tighten, and an adjustable strap. There’s also an interior zippered pocket.

The bag is inspired by the circular form of the bamboo plant and has a really cool knotted strap that you can adjust to your liking. It’s also got a black metal zipper to keep your stuff secure. There’s even an outer pocket and an inside pocket, too. 

Banbū Leather is a luxe vegan material that feels like lambskin but is totally cruelty-free. The liner is made of a soft microfiber cloth that feels like suede, but it’s actually made from post-consumer plastic. It’s seriously the perfect bag for anyone who wants to look stylish while also being conscious about the environment and animal welfare. You can get this crossbody bag in the colors camel, stone (grey), and black.

Ann Laced Concealed-Carry Satchel

Get ready to fall head over freaking heels for Ann’s stunning distressed faux leather, complete with laced sides and a chic tassel that’s sure to turn heads!

Or, switch to the adjustable shoulder strap for a trendy crossbody carry. And don’t forget – this sophisticated bag is even lockable for added security!

Keep in mind that the flimsy nylon and elastic purse holsters that come with most bags are a good starting point, but they won’t cut it for many firearms. Don’t expect your gun to securely “click” into place – these holsters offer no retention whatsoever. If you turn your bag upside down, your weapon will likely slip out. 

Gun Goddess sells a Kydex purse holster that’s custom-molded to fit your specific firearm, complete with snap-in retention.
