We are Natacha, graduate of the Ecole Hôtelière de Lausanne and Selena, post-graduate in Luxury Craftsmanship from the Ecole Cantonale D’Arts de Lausanne.

We first met over coffee at Bad Hunter, a vegetarian place in Lausanne, Switzerland. Die-hard recycling specialists, environmental activists and meat avoiders, we were both angry not to have other choices than leather or plastic when it came to handbags. We'd have some vegan options often made of new plastic. Or we'd have some recycled plastic options made in China. There was so little we could find that really conveyed our values, and these few pieces we'd have to import from across the world. 

Vegan bags, no plastic. Hip, not hippie.

This is how we came up with Allure Sauvage. Allure represents the pride and elegance we both look for when choosing our clothes and accessories, and Sauvage the relationship we have with nature itself.

People & Planet first. We aim to only use natural materials and turn them into hip things, not hippie. As well as being vegan and without plastic, our bags are fair.

We collaborate with Geneva-based workshop Creature which helps women reintegrate the professional life. It was awarded for its ethics and sustainable development.

Unique and sophisticated, our bags are designed in capsule collections. Our first model, the Peacock Lady, is a limited edition only available through kickstarter and is made with a natural leather alternative from pineapple leaf fiber, Piñatex® (PETA approved) in Paprika colour.

You can read more about this textile at the bottom of the page.
The inspiration behind the Peacock Lady is a will to ally Nature and the Human kind. Combining the grace and feminity of the woman with the royalty and pride of the peacock, we stand up for our values: Equality, Fairness and Respect towards all life on this planet.

The Peacock Lady can be used both as a clutch and with an adjustable strap. There is a zipper under the cover to make sure your valuables are safe, and a little pocket inside. The paprika colour is the perfect twist to your winter wardrobe but as a timeless piece, it also brightens your spring and matches your summer tan flawlessly.

 With 5'000 chf we will be able to start our production for The Peacock Lady. We will also offer all backers to have their name on our website's "thank you" page. FIRST GOAL REACHED

     

With 10'000 chf we will be able to get a small online store and continue our Piñatex® collection with a black colour this time, and start thinking of new alternatives to use. We will also hold a thank you party for all our backers to come!

With 20'000 chf we will be able to get an awesome online store and not only finish our Piñatex® collection but also launch a beautiful collection with new mysterious plant-based materials. It would ideally be a complete collection with keychain, clutch and cardholder included. And why not some men-oriented products? 
We will also host a conference/workshop event on the subject of Zero Waste!

With 30'000 or more we can collaborate with other online and offline stores to launch new collections available physically, so you can feel our fabrics before buying your new bag.

Because we believe in transparency, you can see below how the cost of one handbag is split in (based on the sale of 80 handbags):

MORE ABOUT PIÑATEX®.

Piñatex® is a non-woven textile developped and made by Ananas-Anam from pineapple leaf fibers. It is certified vegan by PETA, has a low environmental impact and socially responsible. It is sustainable and soon to be cradle to cradle, as it is a bi-product from the pineapple harvest as the leaves of the plants were previously unused and burnt. 480 leaves of pineapple are used for one square meter of Piñatex®.

Risks and challenges

With degrees from world-reknowned universities, in business and in luxury craftsmanship, we are confident in our ability to bring you these handbags. Our suppliers are supporting us and are all aligned with our vision.
Materials for the first 80 bags have been secured and the bags are expected to be delivered in January 2018 on a first come, first serve basis. You will however receive a thank you card before Christmas if your plan was to use our bags as a gift.
Any bags ordered over the 80 planned may have a longer delivery date due to long production line of raw materials.
