ETHICS AND SUSTAINABILITY
88 is a vegan brand and no animal products are used.
The founder of 88 is a life long vegetarian and believes that the environment would benefit from the reduction of factory farming .
Various vegan leathers are used in production. The scientific names are PU (polyurethane) and PVC (polyvinylchloride) PU is better for the environment and so although more expensive 88 only uses PU in our bags.
88 develops all of our own custom hardware, again with a focus on the best way for the environment and not necessarily the cheapest way.
All of our suppliers are certified compliant for human rights and good working conditions. We are proud of our relationships with our suppliers, most of whom we have worked with for years and whom we consider part of the 88 family.
We have a quality assurance team at the suppliers every day. Inspecting all aspects of production from materials to in line production checks to ensure that we are truly proud of every item that we ship.
We also teach our suppliers best practices, learning from them every day and teaching our other suppliers so that we have the most efficient production and the best value product to offer.
88 donates a % of every sale to a charity that assists in educating women around the world.
We believe that educating women is the key to a better world.
With women educated even to a primary school level child mortality rates come down, families become wealthier, diseases are more under control and each of these women has more of a choice over her fate and future. She can read about the world and not be dependent on a man to tell her what is and is not true..
The charity that we support is: http://www.careinternational.org.uk/fighting-poverty/empowering-women-an….
We would urge you to donate bags that you no longer want to Dress for Success, another charity that helps women improve their own: http://www.dressforsuccess.org.
I really love this purse. First the color is just awesome! They also have this in red or black.
I always love when you can carry it on your arm or have the longer strap for over my shoulder.
I have to get the purses with the separate sections. I am really disorganized and without the sections it is really hard for me to find what I need. This purse gives me big sections to fit anything I need and it is still simple to find anything.
I was trying to take a picture of the zipper pocket on the side for more separation. I like to keep my debit card in there to make it easy for me to pay for my purchases and never look at my credit cards!
88 Handbags has so many great purses of all different styles.

I received this purse to give my honest opinion.
