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.
