About Jola V. Designs

Jola V.

Jola V. Designs is a niche accessories house based out of Vancouver, BC, Canada, working to create a line of handbags and accessories with a subtle beauty and European influence, focused on sustainable sourcing, superb and durable craftsmanship, true comfort, and wearability.

Since launching in 2009, Jola V. Designs (pronounced like “yo-lah”) has been committed to the slow fashion movement, establishing itself as a brand for the modern woman who aspires to portray quality, individuality, and her own commitment to preserve the environment.

Each piece is individually handcrafted to high standards of ergonomics and aesthetic appeal, providing the wearer with comfort and refined elegance in any setting.

Jolanta Va – the face and soul behind Jola V. Designs – brings to each piece she creates a passion for balancing aesthetics with practicality, and sustainability with trend. Born in Europe, Jolanta finds inspiration in her North European heritage, designing and handcrafting each piece herself using leathers and other materials sourced from local suppliers, overstock, remnant hides or repurposed items.


  • Create and build unique, beautiful, and durable, fashion accessories to stand the test of time, yet transform with the wearer.
  • Preserve the environment through alternative sourcing, and careful selection of raw materials.
  • Create underived design staples and trends to share with our cherished Customers.
