Melie Bianco

I was surfing through Piperlime, which lamentably doesn't yet let you sort by vegan goodies. Nonetheless, I was clicking on cute and affordable bags, in the hopes that some of them would turn out to not have animal products. Many of those I clicked happened to be by designer Melie Bianco, and I noticed time and time again they were synthetic. Curious, I mosied on over to the designer's website - lo and behold, they're purposely vegan.

I just received my new Matt & Nat purse last night (picked to house my new Kindle), and owe you reviews of it and my briefcase. So perhaps it is too soon to invest in one of Melie's creations - a delicious blend of ladylike and professional. In the meantime, I seek reviews from readers who might be fans.

I also implore those of you with a Kindle 2 to let me know what you're using as a case, and how it works. So far an outer pocket on my purse is my only solution - yet I am still having visions of dropping it while reading on the subway.


  1. Melie Bianco Bags are great vegan bags. We use hers in our boutique a lot. We've personally taken her bags on Good Morning America, Cosmo, USA Today and others. I think you'll really like them! :)

    If you're looking for other good quality vegan bags, you might also want to look at Nicole Lee and Urban Expressions.

    Best of luck to you with your Kindle! :)

  2. I'm not familiar with Melie Bianco bags (as of yet anyhow!) but I HAVE found really cute, affordable vegan bags @

  3. Hi,

    I am looking to make a work shoe for vegans who need a very comfortable, non-slip shoe with good support. It would primarliy be for people in the restaurant, grocery, and nursing industries. I'm trying to figure out where I can see if there is a demand for this type of shoe. Do you know how I can find that information or who/what companies would be good to talk to about that? You can e-mail me at Thanks you!!!!
