Creative entrepreneurs are often known to take creative career turns and go down roads less traveled. One such story is recounted here by Joey Pringle – an industrial designer who became a handbag designer, only to leave it all behind and become a sustainable vegan handbag manufacturer in China.

And not just any vegan handbag manufacturer but he is setting up a factory founded on five sustainable core pillars focused on attracting like-minded brands and clients and creating change and impact in the fashion industry, one bag at a time.
