Vegan Handbag Guide: Emperia

Emperia Vegan Handbags

The world is turning vegan. So does the fashion industry. People are more cautious about the products that they are purchasing, and the  production background in general. It is important that the process remains cruelty free. One of them is Emperia.

Eco friendy, animal friendly and cruelty free, that is what Emperia is all about today. The Los Angeles based handbag design house and manufacturer used to operate on a different way. Until 2012, Emperia worked in the background as a wholesaler business. 

But, some things are not meant to stay unknown. The creative minds behind this label knew that. That is when they made the big step and became an independent design house. Today, Emperia Handbags can be found at a number of know retailers, such as Nordstrom, Marshalls, Bloomingdale's etc. They also have two showrooms. One in Los Angeles and the other one in New York.

Their fashion style is very laid back. The collections are very diverse offering anything from large totes, backpacks, clutches and much more. A little bit of Cali girl, a little bit of boho chic, the Los Angeles spirit is definitely part of the design!

The Nina Nuru "All Around the World" special - our mission: to feature one footwear designer from every country. Join the spectacular design world tour and get to know some of the most creative masterminds. Today we are in Argentina.

What makes Argentina so beautiful? I could name many things for sure, like the exotic landscape, the climate or the architecture. Still, there is more to be discovered. The hidden gems.

One of these native treasures is footwear designer Jessica Kessel. She is an example how to turn your passion into a profession. Jessica's journey started five years ago when she decided to take her destiny in her own hands. Together with maestro zapatero, Fernando Lopez Bizcaino, she learned the art of shoemaking.

Her outstanding mind, filled with a colorful creativity, helped her to create an unique footwear collection for women. She chose a vintage and non-conventional style, which made it easy to recognize that the designs are full of personality and created out of pure passion. Today, you can find Jessica Kessel's creations in the most historic neighbourhood of Buenos Aires - San Telmo.
