Filbert 'Baker' Bag
FILBERT Vegan Leather ‘Baker’ Bag
No Harm and Certainly No Foul
Nothing makes me more excited than accessories. When you adopt a capsule wardrobe all of your outfits tend to look the same. The best way to spice it up is with a bold lip (see my favorite red lipstick here) or an accessory. I mean, hello, who does not love a new handbag?!
That is what brings me to Filbert, a luxury vegan handbag company based out of the USA. Not only are they committed to animal welfare but they are also keen on maintaining practices that support the environment. As someone who thinks finer goods do not have to come at such a high cost, I knew I needed to get my hands on one of their many products.
Filbert is a run by Bridget Brown, a woman who I am proud to call my friend. I first met Bridget online through the brands site and eventually constant communication and matching ethos sprouted a friendship. Frustrated by the lack accessories that could keep with her feelings towards animals and people, Bridget decided to fill the gap herself. The collection is small and TIMELESS so you do not have to worry about buying into trends that can really hurt the environment (and your wallet)!
I was sent the well-known ‘Baker’ Bag in the yet to be released shade Onyx. Black is such a staple shade in my closet and with only having one small purse, so this was a gift from the Gods.
The bag is VEGAN LEATHER with a pebble finish allowing it to work for a multitude of occasions and individual styles. I love the SPACIOUS DESIGN of the bag and typically use it when I pop into New York for events or business. The gold zipper closure and ability to become cross body makes it the perfect bag to keep all of you belongings on your person.
I find that the QUALITY and aesthetic of the bag speaks volumes to Bridget’s creativity and dedication to the brand. It is very rare to find someone who puts their heart and soul into their work and the Baker Bag is no exception. I am so excited to see how far Filbert will go and would recommend it to anyone searching for a classic handbag to add to their collection.
