About GIJ


G I J (pronounced ‘Gidge’) is committed to offering great vegan bags that are both current and timeless. The foundation of G I J is a GREAT bag that will appeal to vegans and non-vegans alike. The founder of G I J transitioned to a vegan diet in 2012 and when looking for vegan bags, she felt that the bags that were in the market sacrificed style and quality for being vegan and eco-friendly. She set out to create an option to have it all.

Designed and headquartered in Manhattan Beach, California, G I J bags are meant to be well-used, well-traveled and well-loved. They are made to get better with age, tell the story of where you have been and to take with you on your life’s journey.

G I J bags are 100% vegan & cruelty-free without sacrificing style or great fabrication. No animal skins or insect-based dyes are used.

G I J bags use the most sustainable and eco-friendly fibers we can find for each bag, use EU approved dyes and finishes, and our makers carefully control and monitor waste water. Our bags are all mindfully designed and sourced.

G I J gives back to the community. The founder of G I J has been rescuing dogs from the streets of Los Angeles, California for the past 8 years. G I J LLC is committed to giving back a portion of their proceeds to continue in this effort to rescue, tend to medical needs, train, foster and find forever homes for animals in need.
