About

Thank you for believing in LAVNG

LAVNG's BIRTH

LAVNG was launched and successfully funded on Kickstarter in July 2018 with collection of the Finest Natural Leather goods

We have since sold hundreds of bags and wallets to happy customers exclusively via our website 

Our choices of design are usually Minimalist yet loaded with innovative modern features.

We strongly believe in our Motto of QUALITY FOR ALL and will continue to innovate and iterate to better our-self - Only the best leather makes the cut for our designs

https://lavng.com

Here we go AGAIN

Ever striving to out do our-self, we have continued our search to find the finest material for our leather goods collection. 

Introducing ECO Leather:

  • Real Calf Leather
  • Full Grain
  • Vegetable Tanned
  • 100% Eco-Friendly
  • Naked and Aniline

 To Ensure that our wallets are strong and long-lasting, we only use full grain, vegetable tanned Calf leather.

 Not only are they more durable and functional , but the naked natural surface of full grain leather shows the character called PATINA making our wallets age beautifully just like YOU

 At just S$29, it’s probably the only full-grain leather wallet available at that price!

With All Seriousness - Kickstarter has never seen before such honest pricing!

 These slots are 86mm deep and 89mm wide. A credit card is usually around 85.5mm wide and 54mm height.


Dedicated full-width slip pocket to keep your CURRENCY. We have testing with multiple ASIAN, European and American currencies; usually they all fit in well.

It can easily carry up-to 15 currency notes while still maintaining slim profile.

Unique Mid-Night Green Color - Even Apple Loves it

MidNight Green Color unveiled by apple on 10 Sep and used by LAVNG since 1+ year.

On 10 September Apple unveiled the new collection in mid-night green color which has color tone exactly the same as our collection.
     The Story of our mid-night green color started around 3 years back, when instead of the blue I selected green color as the third color for our collection (first two being black and tan; and only 3 colors because leather is super costly and we need big investment for each color).

The PERFECT companion!

Love Patina? Get LAVNG! 

LAVNG wallet getting beautiful Patina over time!

For those who don’t own something made with natural leather, might be wondering: What’s the big deal about owning a leather product? The big deal can be summarized in one word: Patina.

Leather ages in a similar way, much like your favorite pair of raw denim, developing a “patina” as oils from your skin and other elements of the environment absorbs into it. Like our tan color bags, starting with a beautiful pale tan shade, it eventually develops into any range of browns through wear and use.

BUNDLE PRICE - Available in rewards section

 Simple Calculation : 

Quantity * Early Bird Unit Price for the wallets.

Big savings on shipping Cost. The most shippers have a fixed starting price, regardless of weight and then progressive price increase based on weight. Since we will ship all the your rewards together, obviously we will pass on the shipping savings to you. 

Why we started our leather bag company?

Like most you , we could only choose between upmarket brands that overcharge and mass-market brands that skimp on quality

We knew there had to be a better way to provide affordable leather bags without sacrificing on quality.

 Our process is simple but super effective!

With no-one else in-between, we keep the final pricing low as there is no middleman to pay to. The online only presence helps as well as the price of retail front in place like Singapore can be huge.

 Leather 

We use full grain, vegetable-tanned naked leather: we love it and we think you will too! 

 It is the leather that you can feel good about owning as it is totally environmentally friendly, our leather is luxuriously soft with grains that can outlast the many years to come 

 "Veg-TANNED"

Our leather is tanned in an eco-friendly manner using vegetable extracts. There is no use of chrome, heavy metal, formal dehydrate or volatile solvents in tanning process; unaided by potent chemicals, organic tanning takes much longer than chrome tanning (several weeks/months vs a day).

"FULL-GRAIN"

The top surface of a hide, or the grain, is the strongest part of the hide. "Full-grain" means that the surface has not been buffed or sanded to remove imperfections. 

"ANILINE"

Our leather has been dyed the whole way 'through and through'. Pigmented leather, in contrast, has a coat of paint sprayed on top and is cheaper to make. Aniline leather without further artificial finishing is a fully natural product.

Care Instruction

Our leathers are naked and have no artificial finish - hence making is a fully natural product. A few scratches, marks, irregularity in color and texture are a part of this leather and only goes to show that it is a natural product; it is not water resistant, prolonged exposure to water can cause splotches or marks - eventually becoming part of patina.

The leather color appears slightly different in different light and is noticeable while photographing it, especially the Tan color. Under the bright sun it appears lighter and inside a room, it appears little darker. This is characteristics of natural leather. The pigmented leather on other hand has the same appearance irrespective of the light.

 Shipping and Custom Duty

We have tried to be reasonable with shipping

Singapore and Malaysia- No Shipping charges

Rest of the World - Nominal charge of S$13 to S$20 depending on the reward

We will mostly use Singpost - From Singapore Singpost will take the packet to your country's national post service and from there on the nation post service of your country will manage the post. For example for a delivery to US, Singpost will deliver it till US port and from there USPS will manage the package.

If at-times we find other efficient service at similar or lower cost then we may opt that service. Example DHL, Aramex etc.

Duty/VAT/GST charges: If you live outside of Singapore, you will be responsible for applicable duty/VAT/GST charges, if any. In many of the countries, there is no duty or taxes on online shopping up to a certain amount.

Customs: Some countries are known for being very slow with customs, and you probably know if you live in one. We're sorry that, in such case, we can't have any mechanism to help them get through faster.

 People and Mission

Geetanjali - The Founder of LAVNG

Hi, I am Geetanjali the founder and designer at LAVNG.

I love handbags but would not settle for low-quality fast fashion and would always end up overpaying for quality which I would not even know is environment-friendly or not.

The idea of starting LAVNG first clicked me when I was staying in Amsterdam in the year 2009 and visited Italy on a vacation trip. For the first time, I got to know the real price of high-quality leather goods which are made in an environment-friendly manner.

Its quite common for luxury brands to increase their price up to 10 times as compared to manufacturing price to fund the middlemen, expensive real estate and celebrity marketing.

We thought there must be a better way and hence we started LAVNG - Our reason reflects our desire to make high-quality leather goods which are made to last while preserving the environment.

WE STAND FOR ONE SIMPLE THING: QUALITY FOR ALL

This is the motto behind everything that we do and everything we aspire to.

Each step of our process aims to disrupt the status quo of the Luxury Fashion industry, to bring you the best of the best, without the inflated prices – it’s who we are.

  • WE AIM TO CHANGE YOUR HANDBAG SHOPPING EXPERIENCE
  • WE CUT OUT THE EXPENSIVE RETAIL MIDDLEMAN AND COLD MECHANICAL MASS PRODUCTION
  • TO BRING DIRECT TO YOU A PRODUCT HAND-MADE BY PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS
  • ALL AT AN HONEST PRICE!

Risks and challenges

We have become quite good at doing such things thanks to our one Kickstarter campaign and online store experience. We are very confident about professionalism and craftsmanship of the tannery and the factory. We have put proper contingencies in our planning to ensure the timely completion of each milestone in our production run.

Still, the deep experience of industry and life has taught us that although we are prepared in every way possible, unexpected events may come up that are not in our control. We assure you to be completely transparent and honest in all our communications going along the way.
