Vegan Leather Fashion

Vegan leather- yes, you heard it right. Having the same glossy texture and tough durability, we found some amazing products from Gowma, a classy store on Bibwewadi-Kondhwa road, that manufactures trendy yet eco-friendly handbags, wallets and much more albeit without using leather. The store owner told us that they import the fabric which is a vegan substitute for leather, especially from Germany and China. We loved the varied designs these bags had. We found totes bags, unisex slings, satchels, office bags, laptop bags, shopping bags etc, starting at just INR 700.
