Founded by self taught designer Valerie Blaise, V A V V O U N E (Pronounced vav•une) is a leather bag and accessories brand based in New York City. Introducing passionately made products intended to cue emotion. Individuality, moments of nostalgia, and curiosity invite inspiration. Making it a huge part of our creative operation.  

All designs are born and elaborated in our studio/showroom in Brooklyn, New York. When designs are ready to be constructed, we work one on one with a mindful team of craftsmen & women in New York City’s garment district. We recycle back into fashion high-quality Italian leathers left over by ultra-luxury brands. We source our materials thoroughly and thoughtfully, and with our design codes in mind.

We aim to conceptualize a new tier of luxury + sustainability, not defined by price points but by intentionality.

Vavvoune comes from a nickname Valerie’s relatives gave her growing up in Haiti, not wanting a treasured name to be only a memory, its nostalgia was rebirthed.
