Our mission to empower women. Frustrated by the lack of vegan options for luxury shoes, a client challenged us to investigate vegan ingredients.
A few moths later, VIAJIYU's #FIRST vegan shoes were born.
From sandals to booties, we have handcrafted 10+ styles with vegan textiles, including the same faux suede Mercedes-Benz uses for its car interiors.
Our vegan-in-residence challenged us recently to create a vegan laptop bag.
Here's our #FIRST attempt, thanks to Agata who handcrafted every stitch.
The bag is 100% made in Italy using grosgrain from a fifth generation textile mill near Lake Como. The mill is female-led + 28 of its 33 team members are women.
We are working on a new campaign to microfinance female founders via the sales of bags.
