All fabrics and components are 100% vegan as we don't believe any animal should suffer for any reason, particularly fashion.


We are privileged to work with some of the world's most innovative plant based leather alternatives so you won't need to compromise your sustainability or ethical values


We try to be as sustainable and avoid waste as much as possible and are constantly looking for ways to reduce our impact on the planet, people and the environment.


All our products are lovingly made in our Sandringham, Auckland studio by a small team of talented and happy people being paid fairly.


We provide more than a living wage for our makers, and a safe space to work in. We ensure that our suppliers from New Zealand and around the world are paid and treated fairly and only partner with brands that share our values.


We use a range of materials, primarily plant-based textiles and upcycled industry deadstock to ensure a low carbon footprint. We also do the research to make certain that our materials and leather alternatives are manufactured in a sustainable way, without harmful chemicals.


Our items are produced in low stock so we can meet demand while keeping our footprint and waste levels low. To cut back on waste, we repurpose fabric offcuts and loose threads into our designs. If that can’t be done, we compost or recycle any leftover material.

Behind the Brand

Velvet Heartbeat

Velvet Heartbeat was created in 2017 by Suzie Eggleton, who had spent many years working in the fashion industry and in film costuming. After falling in love with leather accessories, Suzie set out to explore high quality, cruelty-free options that did not contribute to the harsh impact of the fashion industry.

Unsurprisingly, this was a tricky feat. So she began crafting her own label of handbags from upcycled vegan leather and plant-based textiles. Working from the sun room of her Auckland home studio with odd ends of fabric she’d collected over time, Velvet Heartbeat was born.
