Products Reviewed: GUNAS offers a range of styles and collections for men and women. We reviewed two of their most popular bags – the Sweetheart and Neon (picture above, left and right).

Original Price: Sweetheart: $199 and Neon: $275

About GUNAS: GUNAS is an exclusive, yet attainable luxury lifestyle brand defined by its progressive outlook towards fashion. It embodies the style and spirit of someone who not only loves fashion, but also takes deep interest in how their belongings are made. Every collection is bold and edgy, making a statement for those who want to differentiate themselves in a crowd. GUNAS bags are individually handcrafted in socially responsible factories around the globe. The brand strongly believes in conscious consumption and exclusivity, hence most of their bags are produced as Limited Editions.

All the bags are vegan, and are made with fabrics that meet at least one of the following criteria:

The One Green Planet Verdict: These bags are fun, bold, super-stylish, and extremely well-made. They materials are soft, yet sturdily constructed, and the high-quality hardware is made to last.

The Sweetheart bag (pictured above, left) is one of GUNAS’ most popular bags, and for good reason! This stylish bag is extremely soft, both inside and out, and has a look versatile enough for day or evening use. With two options for carrying (wrist or shoulder) and plenty of space for storing all the essentials, it’s also very practical!

The Neon purse (picture above, right) is another best-seller. The Neon is beautifully designed and accented – a winning combination of form and function. The dark, neutral navy pairs perfectly with a few pops of orange and bright blue – just enough to make it stand out! The Neon also has two carrying options for maximum versatility. Structured yet soft, this midsize purse is great for everyday use.

GUNAS also sent us Paris, a unisex bag from their collection, although we found the shape and design to be more feminine. While not pictured above (and not a part of the giveaway), you can view this bag here. The Paris is a stylish and formal version of the everyday duffel bag; once again, this piece is strongly constructed, soft and unstructured enough to hold various types of items. The bag is also versatile and can be used for an overnight trip or as a larger handbag when you need one.

I love that first/last clutch, and the hand bag on the right in the third row of pirtuces. I love how the color pops while still not being totally out there. I would be curious about the quality too, but they're definitely cute!

They are both great but the Troy bag in Teal is more my style it's seasonless I could easily see myself using it everyday while still feeling refined =)

I'm a sweetheart girl, for sure. Flashy at times but down to earth at other times. I am my own style and love it!!

Just call me "Sweetheart." As a freelance artist, my image has to be stylish and unique - the vegan way of course! I take pride in my creations - from raw materials to finished piece, and when I buy something I want to know it was made with the same dedication. Whether wearing a suit to meet a client, rocking a gallery opening in a mod dress, or a quick trip to buy supplies in paint-spattered garb, I can take the Sweetheart purse anywere as a useful accent piece.

I am definitely a neon gal, I am the result of several generations of multicultural people and traditions blended to make me, so I have no option but to shine as bright as neon lights.

Just call me "sweetheart". I'm in love with you. :-)

I'm definitely a neon girl! Mostly traditional, calm and peaceful, all things that can be said of the color blue. But when the time is right, when I am passionate about something, I'm not afraid to let all my colors shine, and shine as bright as they can!

Things i have constantly told folks is that when euanvatilg a good on-line electronics store, there are a few variables that you have to remember to consider. First and foremost, you should make sure to look for a reputable plus reliable retail store that has enjoyed great critiques and ratings from other people and marketplace professionals. This will ensure that you are getting along with a well-known store that provides good assistance and help to it's patrons. Many thanks sharing your opinions on this blog.

I'd have to say I'm a Neon type of gal. The shape and hue of the bag are classic and have an elegance to them. A great choice for jeans and flats, or perfect to add style to office attire like a charcoal skirt and navy blouse. Just looks like my kind of bag with its texture, color, and design. Proof that vegan fashion is brilliant.

I would say my wife is a neon. She is classic like the style and tranquil and bright as the color.
