More about So Long Marianne

For too long now high-end fashion brands have profited from extreme cruelty. Leather isn’t just a by-product it’s an attack on the vulnerable to make huge amounts of money from causing unimaginable suffering. In a time where we are being made more aware of the oppressed, we feel animals need to be heard. All brands should move towards a more cruelty free fashion world.

Founded by two passionate women who both believe in compassion to all beings. Not only do we advocate respect and kindness to those around us, but we believe this compassion should also extend to those that we do not see day to day.

We have been a voice for the animals for many years and practice what we preach by both enjoying and thriving on a vegan diet. While some people start and stop with what is on their plate we also do not buy or wear any animal products. Where possible we are strictly cruelty free and this includes in the brands we buy and support.

We came up with the idea for a high-end vegan handbag brand many years ago when we realised all the lovely designer handbags were made from animal skin. We really felt strongly about wearing such cruelty but at the same time there didn’t seem to be anything that we loved that was ethical. Vegan handbags have historically been at the cheaper end of the market and we found we were often having to sacrifice both the quality of the materials and that of the workmanship to get something vegan.

We decided to create our own and we are so delighted with the results. We are here to showcase that you really can have great fashion with compassion. Beautiful designs do not need to be made from cruelty and with the vegan and ethical movement growing on every level we wanted to be part of that in the fashion industry.
