What is a vegan backpack?

We’re glad you asked! A vegan backpack is the cruelty-free accessory of choice. Unlike leather bags, our ethical vegan backpacks don’t use any animal-derived materials. Instead, we champion premium quality vegan leathers and recycled materials where possible, working to very low chemical requirements. The result is a vegan backpack that is better for the environment, better for the animal kingdom, and better for you!

How are Urban Originals’ backpacks different from others?

The luxury vegan leather that we use for all Urban Originals backpacks is sturdy, while still feeling soft and supple just like animal-derived leather. As well as avoiding any animal cruelty in our manufacturing process, we’re committed to creating an ethical product that is also sustainable. All the styles of our vegan leather backpacks use an eco-conscious fabric that’s created by a low chemical process, leaving less of an impact on our planet.

How should l take care of my vegan backpack?

With proper care, your ethical vegan backpack should last you for years to come. There are a few rules of thumb when it comes to making sure your vegan leather looks and lasts at its absolute best. Firstly, you might notice a smell when you first receive your PU leather purchases. This will dissipate with time, but you can also hang your bag in an airy place for a few hours to speed this process up.

If you find any stains or dirt on your vegan backpack, use a clean, damp sponge or a baby wipe to rub the affected area and gently remove the stain. Vegan leather really doesn’t like water! Never wash your bag with water, and if you do get it wet (we get it, accidents happen), allow it to air dry. Blow drying or using artificial heat sources to dry out the material may damage it, so skip any hot heat.
