Gigi Hadid's eco-friendly handbag – and where you can find a similar one on every budget

IF Gigi Hadid is spotted wearing it, you know it's going to be a hit – and her latest piece of arm candy is sure to be no different.

The supermodel was spotted with this £50 handbag from UK fashion brand, Rogue Matilda – and whats more it's part of a sustainable charity project so fashionistas can do some good whilst looking great.

The Rita Bag is part of a collection by Rogue Matilda named after the girls in the Lou Bega classic, Mambo No. 5 and range from an affordable £50-£75.

They are handwoven in Mexico as part of a community project that allows prison inmates to use their time incarcerated to learn an artisan skill in order to make goods.

The initiative provides the inmates with an oppportunity to learn a new skill, sense of purpose and make money for their family.

Rogue Matilda has even said that "many of the inmates are now teaching their families the skill of basketry and once they’ve done their time" and create a collective to continue using their skill,  the profit from each bag also goes straight to the artisans themselves to improve their lives and support their families.

But Rogue Matilda aren't the only sustainable, eco-friendly handbag company on the market, here are some of our favourites.

1. Rogue Matilda

The Rita Bag is a favourite of Gigi Hadid, and is only £50 but there are also Pamela, Monica, Angela, and Erica (priced up to £75). They are currently sold out, but are about to be restocked in a matter of weeks.
