Sustainably Chic

Natural, Eco & Oh so Chic | Cork Wallets are Our New Favorite Cruelty-Free Accessory

Fashion, Fashion Pt. 2Natalie Kay


This is for my vegan friends, eco fashionistas and anyone else looking for something unique to carry all their daily essentials. Laurent Bleu, the founder of FRiLuk, is French and loves a good glass of wine {me too}. Out of the hundreds of bottles he has uncorked, one particular evening when opening a bottle sparked an idea. He thought with cork being one of the most sustainable resources on the planet, why did the fashion industry not take advantage of it as a fabric? This question began the journey of a new sustainable fashion brand. FRiLuk, a Peta-approved accessories brand from the UK, is taking one of the coolest materials and creating a practical line of wallets {& a beautiful fountain pen} for both women AND men. 

Yes, our boyfriends & husbands can join us in this ethical fashion movement! Thanks to my boyfriend, Travis, for modeling in this post. He loves his new wallet ;)

Why I Love FRiLuk

1. Their fabric of choice is cork, which is biodegradable, natural and a renewable resource. It is also waterproof & stain resistant making it an ideal material for a product you use everyday. 

2. They are super soft and light so no weighing you down. 

3. I think most of you will appreciate their price! The Zip-Around Clutch is $46, and the Slim Wallet is $40. 

4. They are well-made. From the zippers to the seams, you can tell they paid attention to detail. Laurent has 15 years experience {before starting his own venture} managing teams all over the world in the high tech industry. Therefore, FRiLuk has become a global collaboration, and currently has 10 countries involved in its process.

5. You won't have any trouble organizing. Each wallet has multiple card & money slots, and you can even fit your iPhone 7Plus in the Zip-Around. 

6. Cork is actually really cool looking, and it's a great neutral. I think most people would find it appealing so it's an easy way to create more conscious consumers {we need more of you!!}.

What We're Using

I'm always happy when my boyfriend likes a sustainable product {this doesn't happen often}! He has been using the Vegan Slim Wallet which has 3 frontal card slots, 2 hidden card slots, 2 slip pockets and 1 coin pocket. I've been using the Vegan Zip Around Clutch Purse in Grid Grain which is the perfect size for all my cards, cash AND phone. You can find the Zip Around Clutch in another cool cork style called Flow Grain. Important to note: All wallets use RFID that block signals used by data thieves to steal card information so you can feel safe & secure! If you are looking to just protect your cards, try their Cork & Aluminum Pop Up Credit Card Holder
