JW PEI believe that the future of fashion should be ethical and sustainable. When the brand was launched in 2016, they were told they would need to use leather as nobody cared about animal welfare. They didn't listen. Committed to designing with 100% vegan leather, JW PEI are demonstrating how a fashion brand can push the boundaries to make products that are beautiful, sustainable and cruelty-free.
Founded in 2016, JW PEI is an independent vegan designer line dedicated to offering premium quality ethical fashion handbags. Based in Los Angeles, the brand is inspired by the hues of nature and a love of animals, in addition to providing customers with a new generation of fashion accessories. With styles ranging from your day to day work tote to the sleek looking statement bag.
JW PEI's first collection is crafted with ultra-microfiber, a high-tech, luxurious, non-animal leather while the linings are made with 100% recycled plastic bottles. Non-toxic, unlike PVC, with a luxurious feel, unlike PU, it's 50% lighter than genuine leather and 5 times more durable. All the bags are made in factories that are certified by GRS (Global Recycling Standards) which means all the materials can be traced.
