About

LAVNG's BIRTH

LAVNG was launched and successfully funded on Kickstarter in July 2018 with the 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

Here we go AGAIN

Ever striving to outdo 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
The best material!

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

LAVNG ECO Leather Wallet
LAVNG Zip Wallet ECO 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!

 A must-have back pocket companion, this Slim Leather Wallet is small, yet accommodating leather wallet for men that can keep all of your financial necessities close at hand. This slim and lightweight wallet is made from luxuriously soft leather.

Forever Young Simple and Minimalist Design

The Slim profile is always better than the Fat one.
Better SAFE than sorry

 With the digitization of money, losing a card can be a costly affair. Unlike most of the other wallets which come with vertical alignment, LAVNG offers a more convenient and safe solution thanks to the horizontal alignment of your cards. It is your personal bank to keep your money safe!

 Compartments :

  • 1 currency compartment
  •  6 + 2 card slots 
Don't leave them behind - it stores all your cards

2 compartments capable to fit BIGGER AND THICKER cards -  the bottom-most card slots on both sides (total 2 compartments) are little wider and deeper. They can easily fit bigger and thicker cards like ID cards, Gate Cards, Office ID cards, Laminated cards, etc.

 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 tested 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 a slim profile.

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 the 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 your rewards together, obviously we will pass on the shipping savings to you.

 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 the patina.

The leather color appears slightly different in a 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 a little darker. This is the characteristics of natural leather. The pigmented leather, on the other hand, has the same appearance irrespective of the light.

 Shipping and Custom Duty

We have tried to be reasonable with shipping. We would use Singpost for shipping most of the rewards.

Singapore and Malaysia- No Shipping charges

Rest of the World - Nominal charge of S$13 to S$60 depending on the reward

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.

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.
