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:
- GREENGUARD® Certified
- LEED Certified
- Oeko Tex Standard Certified
- Cradle to Cradle Certified
- AZO Free Certified
- REACH Compliant
- Made in Green® Label
- Contain Recycled content
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.

LOVE these bags!
I recently ordered a custom Bella bag from Gunas and I have to tell you their customer service was amazing! Their design team worked closely with me in picking colors and materials I like and the final bag came out so beautiful! I get compliments on it each time I carry it around. Right after the Bella I landed up ordering their Rockstar purse in patent red and it's stunning in person as well! Finally there's a company that makes vegan bags that look and feel great!
I ordered an Emily clutch. The bag is nice looking but it smells very strongly of chemicals and the smell is not going away... So beware people with allergies! Gunas would not allow me to return it because it was a "custom bag" even though on the website it was simply one of the standard color options. So if you order from their website, read the fine print and make sure you are not ordering a custom bag.
GUNAS Designer Vegan Handbag
I was very fortunate to be one of the winners of the contest for the GUNAS handbags. I received my Neon bag yesterday and I am absolutely in love with it! This bag is one of the most beautiful, classic, fun bags I have ever seen and knowing that it is made of completely vegan materials makes it even more beautiful. The quality is amazing and I am convinced this bag will last far longer than most of the bags I already have. The colors are gorgeous!
I originally intended to use it only for special occasions but I could not resist starting to use it right away. I have already received so many compliments on it!
I am so glad to have been introduced to GUNAS through this contest and will most definitely be purchasing products from them.
Thank you GUNAS and One Green Planet!
The Gunas original handbag that I received is outstanding. It is a high quality product made with care and attention to detail. I feel fabulous carrying my black and red NEON.
