Vegan and U.K Made
'Kindness and compassion towards all living things is a mark of a civilised society. Conversely, cruelty whether it is directed against human beings or against animals, is not the exclusive province of any one culture or community of people' Cesar Chavez.
In 2013 the founders of Wilby decided to create a UK made vegan fashion range specialising in the 'clutch'. These were to be animal free products that are certified for legitimacy as well as being eco sensitive and environmentally aware. The aim was and still is to create a fashion brand that is both ethical and fashionable for the consumer who can be safe in the knowledge that they are helping the environment in some way with every purchase.
The brand has had an amazing start and all bags are vegan approved by PETA . We also use organic and eco friendly materials when possible such as organic cotton and lining, recyclable cloth ,eco friendly backing and cork leather.
‘ There is no beauty in the finest cloth if it makes hunger and unhappiness’
Most bags are designed and made in the United Kingdom and Wilby intend to keep it that way. The concept for Wilby was conceived in prestigious area of Chelsea , London and this identity continues to resonate throughout all of the varied designs .
*PLEASE NOTE The Tone time bags are made in China but to strict and regular inspections of factories and workplaces.
We use organic materials where possible including hemp and cotton and strive to constantly improve our ethical and environmental sourcing .
Much love and happy shopping! x
