As a Peruvian-born immigrant living in the USA and founder of this female-owned business, Rossina Guevara has had over 20 years of knowledge and experience in the fashion industry. In 1985, Rossina came to New York with her family to achieve the American dream. Since then, she has had the opportunity to design for the top fashion houses in New York City. Six years ago, Rossina made the decision to become vegan; changing her perspectives on animals and the environment. This led her to create change by introducing sustainable alternatives to the fashion industry. In December 2019, she officially launched VANNE, providing a modern design aesthetic using only premium sustainable materials.
However, the 2020 global pandemic hit, causing the brand to relaunch back in February 2021. Today, Rossina resides in Queens, NY with a continued desire to make a difference in the world by changing a harm-causing fashion industry.
Our Sustainable Products
Like luxury genuine leather bags, VANNE provides quality to their designs and materials; just without causing harm to the environment or animals. Each product from our brand is guaranteed 100% vegan and biodegradable, with leather-like materials made entirely from plants. The quality and delicate process it takes to create plant leathers makes it of high value; ensuring that you are receiving the best sustainable-sourced materials to add to your collection.
Our Part in Ethics
Our Future Ahead
Our goal is to work towards building a more compassionate and cruelty-free future. In order to accomplish this goal, we plan to:
- Create a complete brand identity and collections using only plant leathers and biodegradable materials that are all non toxic/plastic.
- Promote and help other vegan brands succeed by doing collaborations with both accessories and beauty categories. No competition, just finding a solution to our common global issues.
- Continuing to work with ethical factories only and with manufacturers that pay their employees living wages as well as ensuring a high standard of working conditions and security.
