Tory Burch taps Modern Meadow for vegan leather bag

March 6, 2023 |

In New Jersey, fashion brand Tory Burch is using material from plant-based leather pioneer Modern Meadow in its iconic Ella tote.

Dubbed Ella Bio, the tote’s outer shell is made of BioFabbrica Bio-Tex™, a USDA-certified plant-based material using soy.  BioFabbrica Bio-Tex “feels and looks like leather” but is 64% biobased content, Jennifer Gootman, global head of sustainability & ESG strategy at Tory Burch, says in a press statement. “It is a great example of a growing movement towards ‘next-gen’ materials that take inspiration from nature but are engineered to have a lower environmental impact.”

Ella Bio sells for $348 on
