Chiquito's Adds Vegan-friendly Handbags to the Menu for 2022

When you hear the name Chiquito, Mexican food will be the first thing that comes to mind for most people. However, that could change somewhat in January as the renowned restaurant chain is stepping foot onto the catwalk with its first-ever fashion accessory, ‘The Chiquito’ handbag.

There have been surprising changes around the world over the past twelve or so months, but one that nobody would have seen coming is the Mexican Restaurant brand Chiquito, moving into the world of fashion. Before you start shouting ‘What!’ at your screens, their move into fashion with the ‘The Chiquito’ handbag has been created to celebrate Veganuary.

The handbag takes its inspiration from one of the world’s most talked-about fashion accessories of 2021 and gives it a beautiful vegan makeover. It is a small top-handled bag made from vegan leather, which can be held or worn over the shoulder, and comes in a vivid bicolour design of the brand’s famed blue and yellow.

‘The Chiquito’ is a must-have accessory for anyone wanting to be Spring/Summer 2022 runway-ready, with the bag reflecting two of the Pantone Color Institute’s top ten standout colours for the season – ‘Spun Sugar’ and ‘Daffodil’.

The perfect accessory for foodies and fashionistas alike, the plant-based handbag will drop this January to raise awareness and funds for Veganuary. Just 100 limited edition bags will be available, and the nation can bid on them in an online silent auction, with all proceeds going to the eco-friendly charity partner.

‘The Chiquito’ Vegan Handbag Style Details:

  • Design: Single carry handle with detachable shoulder strap
  • Material: 100% PU leather
  • Pantone: Vivid Blue & Radiant Yellow
  • Signature fold over top with magnetic closure
  • Single rounded top handle
  • Colour of fastening: Gold
  • Comes with a dust bag

The handbags, which can also be worn over the shoulder using the matching yellow shoulder strap, are up for auction and can be bid on throughout January. The winning bidders will be notified in February and sent their exclusive fashion accessory in a dust bag along with an official card showcasing the bag’s limited-edition production number.

Chiquito continues to support Veganuary, with the charity encouraging people and businesses to move to a plant-based diet as a way of protecting the environment, preventing animal suffering, and improving the health of millions of people.

Luana Herrmann, Head of Brand and Marketing at the leisure & concessions business, said: “We’re confident ‘The Chiquito’ will be turning heads on the street, and we couldn’t be prouder of supporting Veganuary with their important work for another year.”

“Our vegan menu has always been an important and ever-evolving part of our brand, and we continue to support and keep our vegan guests at the forefront of our minds. Every year it becomes more vital that we’re giving our customers as much variety as possible in our restaurants.

“It’s not every day that Chiquito puts its hand to designing a fashion accessory, so when we do, like our food, we do it right.”

Toni Vernelli, Head of Communications & Marketing at Veganuary, said: “Chiquito has been supporting Veganuary since 2016, and we’re thrilled to have their continued support again this year. Their new vegan-friendly handbag shows that fashion and compassion can go hand in hand.

“The funds raised from the silent auction will be vital in assisting our continued efforts to promote a meat-free lifestyle. It’s never been as important as it is now to make simple changes that can have a lasting impact.”
