Leather-Free Purses for Every Budget

Stella McCartney’s recent PETA exposé, which reveals the horrors of the leather industry, made my skin crawl … just like the skin of the animals who once crawled, walked, jumped, and ran before it was ripped from their bodies. Are you ready to ditch the dead skin (really, that’s what leather is) from your wardrobe? Check out my picks for leather-free purses for every budget.
