Eco Alternative: Bottega Veneta

{Deux Lux, $125}
The trademark basket weave construction of Bottega Veneta has long been a fiendish handbag favorite of mine. And while the supple leather and high-end hardware is alluring, the price tag is cost-prohibitive.
In addition to being made from vegan leather, the second option, from Luna Boston is $1400 less. I do not condone designer knock-offs; however, I enjoy the option of getting a similar look, from and eco-friendly designer for less.
I'm a novice when it comes to leather alternatives, but the the item description given denotes that this handbag has a buttery texture and convincing leather-like quality which makes me inclined to give it a try.

I actually think the second one is far more beautiful, even if I didn't know any better, I would have picked the second...have a great day!

I like the second one a tad better I think, and the fact that it is eco friendly is the kicker- its a winner. I might need one for myself.

We're with you on not liking designer knockoffs, but this one somehow falls in a different category, and looks like a great discovery!
