Vela logo



The Vela bag was invented in the garment district of Carpi, Italy. The name 'Vela' translates to 'sail' in Italian, which represents the relationship between humans and nature working together.

The Vela ring personifies the environment in its most basic forms and is inspired by water ripples, tree rings, and topography. Nature is our greatest source of inspiration and this mark illustrates the legacy and reverberations a single action can create.
