It's not often that our deepest shopping desires have a positive effect on our consciences. In fact, our credit-card swipes have brought our moral barometers from clear to guilty more times than we can count.
So, you can imagine our
delight when R29's own assistant editor, Gina Marinelli
, named Angela & Roi
handbags as her editor obsession. Not only are these pretty purses crafted from 100% vegan leather
, but they're also ultra-affordable
(under $100!) and a portion of all proceeds are donated
to various non-profit organizations dedicated to medical research.
In fact, each Angela & Roi bag comes with a colored leather ribbon that is associated with a specific cause. When you buy a bag, you know that $5 will be donated
to the cause that is linked to that color. Click through to see five of our favorite Angela & Roi picks along with their ribbon colors and the corresponding causes they support. Just don't forget to tell us which is your favorite.Shop our favorite Angela & Roi picks here!
