MONIKA ORAMANIEC + VE-LIFESTYLE
VE-Lifestyle is a small Belgian company created in 2020 during the pandemic by Paulina Forys and Tom Verbeke. You can read more about our mission, vision and philosophy in the "Who we are" tab.
In 2023, we decided to implement our bold plan and start producing vegan, ethical accessories under our own brand. The main reason for our decision was to introduce elegant and stylish high-quality products made of plant-based materials to the market. And that's how our first product was born - the miniBox bag. Our bag is made of Italian grape leather on the outside and corn leather with recycled PET, on the inside. The bags are sewn by hand in a very small workshop in Krakow, where highly specialized workers create them with surgical precision. However, talking about our project without mentioning its most important creator would be a crime. We create our bag in cooperation with the best designer and stylist we know - Monika Ormaniec. Privately, Monika is our best friend and it is a great honor for us to be able to fulfill our dreams and plans with her. Her greatest passion is designing and sewing elegant clothes and accessories. All of Monika's projects can be found on her Instagram profile @monikaormaniec - which we strongly encourage you to follow.
Together with Monika, we would like to develop our brand Monika Ormaniec + VE-LIFESTYLE and create more accessories that will meet your expectations. The bag is just the beginning of our adventure, but more products will definitely appear.
