Vana is the purveyor of luxury precious leather handbags and accessories that are the ultimate expression of refinement and timelessness. The products have been created through collaboration with master artisans in South Africa.

Vana’s approach to style is simple – the label procures consciously curated, sustainably sources and CITES certified exotic leathers, while ensuring flawless craftsmanship. The brand’s diverse offering allows for unique self-expression based on designs to suit the multidimensional lifestyles and spirit of today’s women.

Vanashree Singh, the woman behind the brand VANA, has created an exclusive doorway to the soul of South African Luxury, and is passionate about supporting the sustainability of community-driven projects, as part of the brand’s production process. Vana commissions Woza Moya, a community-based NGO assisting people with HIV to earn a living, to supply the brand’s beaded adornments and production of Vana dust bags.

Vana believes in creating opportunity in education and sponsors the education program at WEF (Wildlife Education Fund) which educates young children about the wildlife and the environment. The Butterfly Mark celebrates Vana’s commitment to creating responsibly-sources luxury pieces, with sustainability and legacy at the heart of the brand.


Vana has been awarded the Butterfly Mark for their measurable impact and company-wide commitments to sustainability.
