Luxtra – The Luxury sustainable fashion brand that’s leading positive change
LUXTRA is a sustainable fashion brand that uses plant-based vegan leathers to make timeless accessories which launched in 2019.
Luxtra’s range of handbags and accessories are crafted from vegan friendly materials including pineapple leaf, apple skin, cactus leaf, corn and mango leathers.
The luxury range doesn’t compromise on style or texture, creating beautiful, classic pieces in a range of colours and metallic finishes.
Founded and designed by Jessica Kruger, the range includes belt bags, totes, cross body and clutch styles for both men and women. Hand finished in Italy; items can also be hand customised with beautiful colourful initials for a truly bespoke offering.
LUXTRA’s mission is to promote responsible production & consumption by crafting beautiful & evermore sustainable treasures for daily life.
The company was founded in 2018 and launched to the public in 2019 by serial ethical entrepreneur Jessica Kruger.
Originally from Sydney, Australia, Jessica spent her barefooted childhood between the beach and the bush.
The journey of LUXTRA began in 2012 when Jessica’s mother, Sheila, took a sabbatical to volunteer at Farm Sanctuary in California – a happy forever-home for animals saved from factory farming. Watching the documentary Forks Over Knives, to understand what her mother was embarking upon, Jessica adopted a plant-based way of life.
Over the following years the idea for LUXTRA began to emerge: to create a conscious luxury brand that people could inherently trust to create beautiful, cruelty-free and sustainability-focused items.
In 2020 LUXTRA proudly certified as a B Corporation – a new type of company that balances purpose with profit. Becoming a B Corporation provides a tangible symbol of LUXTRA’s dedication to using business as a force for good.
Jessica was also the founder of award-winning meat-free restaurant ETHOS, located in central London.
