The ladies from Our Hen House came to visit Los Angeles for the 2011 Animal Rights Conference and they stopped by our Pasadena showroom with friend and L.A. correspondent Ari Solomon to do some shopping and to interview our own, Jackie Horrick, about what it’s like running a vegan business and all things vegan in LA.  You can check out their fabulous podcast interview  by going to their blog at or subscribing on iTunes.

We’re also excited to have a new addition to our vegan handbag selection, the Our Hen House signature tote bag!  This limited edition super-adorable-one-of-a-kind vegan tote bag reads, “A Place To Find Our Way To Change The World For Animals”. This cute black, yellow, and grey tote was designed in collaboration with Lion’s Share Industries and Our Hen House, and was created by artist Razi Bhatti. It is made from 100% recycled soda, water, food containers, and was printed using eco-friendly ink.
