So, a couple of months ago, I was in the market for a new purse as the one I had was beginning to fall apart on one of the straps. With veganism in mind, I searched on Google for "vegan purses". I soon found a plethora of sites selling purses with no animal products as any of the used materials.

What stood out to me were these hemp purses. Although I was a little weary at first at buying something made out of hemp, I rather quickly found my thoughts were pointless. Hemp has multiple benefits; I was sold.

After doing some searching, I found a brand of bags, backpacks, and purses made out of hemp: Sativa. They had a wide selection with reasonable prices. Although the company was based out of the UK, I managed to find a site here in the US that sold most of their products: BuyGreen.

Once I was sure which purse I wanted (I was debating between two), I purchased it. I was very glad with the choice I made as it fit everything I wanted it to (I have a lot of stuff!). Plus, no animals were harmed or killed for it, so even better!

Here are a few pictures of my Sativa purse:

Back compartment, no inside pockets (I usually have my Kindle Fire
inside there)

Here's the purse on Sativa's website, as well as on BuyGreen's website.
