GUNAS NEW YORK Launches 100% Animal-Friendly Footwear

08/05/2016 by

GUNAS launches a capsule 100% vegan shoe line to extend their brand's reach in the non-leather luxury goods market. The iconic and America's first designer vegan handbag brand has partnered with an all vegan owned and operated artisan studio in India to manufacture their line of cruelty-free, high comfort and stylish footwear.

Vegan lifestyle and health consciousness is on the rise and GUNAS is at the forefront of expanding this awareness into fashion."We've experienced a lot of excitement and support from the vegan and vegetarian community about starting a shoe line. Our fans love the handbags and wanted shoes that followed a similar aesthetic as our bag collection," saidSugandh, the founder and creative mind behind the brand. "My ultimate goal is to see the #gunasgirldressed head to toe in our 100% cruelty-free designs." Adding a shoe line seems like a natural fit and evolution of making GUNAS into a lifestyle brand.

Established in 2009, GUNAS is an independent, luxury vegan lifestyle brand born in New York City. GUNAS's heart and soul screams to be the voice of animals. Animals are NOT meant to be a part of fashion. We can look and feel good without harming other living beings. Industrial designer by trade, Sugandh developed a line of affordable totes that consciously fused luxury aesthetics with eco-friendly philosophies. The result… a beautifully crafted collection of vegan-approved wallets, clutches, messengers, totes and duffels, that don't sacrifice style. Custom Hardware, seductive structure, and lightweight construction make GUNAS NEW YORK the leader in progressive luxury.
