I treated myself recently; what can I say? I deserve a treat. I've been working hard and felt it was time to look like I give a damn about what I put my possessions in.
Thus - my beautiful new vegan, cruelty free accessory! (That I just had to share with you all....)
It's getting easier to find vegan fashion; shoes, clothes and bags (thankfully!), but my biggest issue is still style. I find a lot of vegan brands don't match the sense of taste and style I want out of my clothing and accessories. Just because I'm vegan, doesn't mean I want to scream "HIPPY" with every stitch of clothing I wear.
I am so happy to have discovered Mechaly. I had never heard of this vegan company and don't know how that's possible (probably because I spend more time eating then shopping....) But they are fantastic; high quality, ethical, fashion forward; specialising in vegan leather, handbags, scull wallets, jewellery and more.
Mechaly was born out of the wish to blend social action with the love of fashion and style. Mechaly aims to address the obstacles and challenges facing cruelty against animals; inspired by people who lead busy lives and are looking for accessories that encompass style and comfort, while fulfilling a higher cause.
This is me to a T!
I am vegan, I care, I want to do the right thing and make the right choices. But, I'm also hectically busy and don't always have time to spend hours on the internet looking for the most ethical option. Here is one company, where you can guarantee style, ethics and ease!
Mechaly is all about design, fashion, the environment, social responsibility, excellence, inclusiveness, integrity, authenticity and, of course, being a voice for animals. The mission is to take animals out of the equation. HALLELUJAH!
Mechaly is proud to be certified vegan by Vegan.org and a PETA approved cruelty free & vegan brand.
I highly recommend taking a look around - www.mechaly.com

Thank you Mechaly. Keep up the amazing work.
As a little bonus, I wanted to include the Mechaly founding story...which is genuinely beautiful. As French designers operating out of Beverly Hills, I found their story beautiful and worth sharing :)
"You're probably wondering what the name "Mechaly" means. To us, Mechaly represents our Legacy; it is our Culture, Heritage, Family, and Tradition. Mechaly is the maiden name of our mothers.
"We have vivid childhood memories of our grandfather, Henry Mechaly, and the principles he instilled in us. As children, we would often visit our grandfathers’ farm where he taught us to respect all living beings! He taught us that life is precious and to cherish good health and each day that is given to us on this earth. Grandpa always believed in us and pushed us to pursue our dreams. The Mechaly brand commemorates the confidence & determination our grandfather instilled in his grandsons. Mechaly is also dedicated to all grandparents who believe in their grandchildren unconditionally."
Well - amen to that. Let's all keep working together to build a beautiful, compassionate, cruelty-free world.
