We love fashion—but we love the earth, too. There’s a responsibility in that statement, and it’s one we at HOZEN take seriously as artists and activists. For that reason, we’ve built our brand on three guiding principles: Form, function, and freedom. It’s what we believe in, and it’s what sets our vegan leather tote bags apart.
FORM - THE BEST
Our vegan leather totes take their cues from fashion, but they’re built for daily wear. With its minimal shape and zippy colorways, our Market Tote has enough irreverence to punctuate any outfit, whether you’re browsing the market or out with friends. Seeking something more structured? Consider the Colorblock Tote, a crisp tailored number with all the benefits of a briefcase—or our Market Tote, its playful-yet-poised little sister.
FUNCTION - EVERYWHERE
Designed with your busy lifestyle in mind, our vegan leather totes will carry you comfortably from the workplace to the weekend—and we challenge you to find a trio of styles better suited for spontaneous adventure. Our ample interiors fit the 9-to-5 essentials and then some: a laptop, that book you’ve been meaning to give back to your coworker, last night’s Thai leftovers, even a change of shoes for happy hour. Beachbound? There’s plenty of space for sand supplies, including a zippered pocket to keep your valuables safe and dry. If you have a date on the books, bring one of our tote bags as a talisman (one that just so happens to have room for a few choice sleepover supplies).
SUSTAINABLE & ECO FRIENDLY
At HOZEN, the word freedom—from cruelty, from oppression, from toxins—is all-encompassing. We’ve committed to using sustainable, eco-friendly, and Peta-approved materials in all of our vegan leather totes (including Piñatex leather, a biodegradable pineapple husk fiber, recycled plastic thread and zippers, recycled hemp label, and even a vegan adhesive), and we’ve made it our mission to uphold ethical and environmental manufacturing standards, ensuring our bags are crafted in small batches at a fair-wage factory in Los Angeles. When you buy tote bags online, you’re making a choice—and we’re humbled you’ve chosen Hozen.
