I started the line about a year ago with hopes of showing the world my style and philosophy: “Fashion with a conscience”. I know this sounds contradicting being that we mainly use leather, but we want the luxury and the quality in fashion, so I give you a unique, high quality product that sacrifices in many other materials and processes of production, along with donations and community service. So you are not only buying a product that has been minimized as much as possible in its carbon footprint but you are also supporting the cause and spreading it out. Volaga is committed to minimizing its carbon footprint by only using recycled materials, soy based inks, working with local suppliers, regulating our manufacturing processes among many other things.(visit our site for more info “Environmentalism”).
Design wise, I stick to clean, simple but stylish and unique pieces; for me its all about practicality. I want to give you a bag that not only makes your life easier and more enjoyable but also makes you look as unique as possible! For the new collection, particularly, I was very much inspired by colors on earth, so I chose a color pallet that is a combination of earth tones and pastels. Its all about being able to express your own style and if we are still not cool enough we will make it as cool as you want, because we do offer customization for our designs just let us know!
Why birds.. oh yeah that little detail on which the whole brand is based out off. Volaga comes from the combination of the Italian word “Volare” to fly and my initials AGA. It is inspired by my love of life, love of nature and respect for our environment. Birds are such free spirits, they are everywhere, they enjoy everything, they see everything and they stick together; they are a way of life and my way to connect with the environment.
