VÄSKA on Barcelonassa toimiva laukku- ja asustemerkki. Kaikki tuotteet ovat 100% käsitehtyjä luonnollisesta kasviparkitusta nahasta, kiinnittäen huomiota erityisesti yksityiskohtiin ja laatuun.

VÄSKA tarjoaa ainutlaatuisia, laadukkaita ja käytännöllisiä tuotteita. Tuotevalikoimaan kuuluvat erilaiset tyylikkäät kasviparkitusta nahasta valmistetut laukut, iPhone ja iPad suojat sekä muut nahkaasusteet.

VÄSKAn tuotteissa yhdistyy pohjoismainen minimalistinen tyyllikkyys Välimeren vaikutteilla. Muotoilun lähtökohtana on aina ajaton, mutta samalla moderni, innovatiivinen ja jatkuvasti uudistuva linja.
Yritys
Kuka tai ketkä ova kaupan takana ja mistä idea siihen lähti? 
VÄSKA was established in 2012 as a result of a final project by Ann-Sofi in accessory design at the Fashion Design School of FD Moda in Spain.

The brand VÄSKA comes from the Swedish word for “bag” and is influenced in all its designs by the Fenno-Swedish origins of the designer, following a very Nordic and pure line combined with a Mediterranean touch.

All the products are 100% handmade in a small workshop in Barcelona with a passion for traditional craftsmanship, using only the finest leather and natural fabrics.
Mitkä ovat olleet toimintanne kohokohtia? 
Being selected as the accessory winner of the FUTURE OF FASHION Program by Not Just a Label and Who’s Next, the most internationally renowned fashion trade show in Europe. Other honours include being selected as best emerging talent for the pioneering event ORIGIN PASSION & BELIEFS in May 2014 in Italy.
Millä tavalla pyritte parantamaan ympäristön ja ihmisten hyvinvointia? 
I believe in authentic material and the “slow fashion trend”, which is about durability and better quality, as well as smaller-scale production: quality before quantity.

Väska leather bags are products that you can wear for more than just one season. My aim is always to create products that are minimalistic but unique at the same time and long-lasting, thus preventing them from being placed into the commercial fashion industry

All the products are locally produced by hand within a context that respect the people and the environment.
Onko teidän pitänyt luopua jostakin kestävämmän ja vastuullisemman toimintatavan vuoksi? 
Using high quality ecological materials and traditional craftsmanship is expensive, meaning the production is small-scale and limited.
Mikä on mottonne? 
Nordic simplicity - Mediterranean chic
Mikä inspiroi teitä? 
My overall inspiration comes from the details and the materials, architecture and the nature. I also like to look into Nordic design, e.g. a wooden chair that I like I might want to convert into a handbag with a similar feel.
Tuotteet ja tuotanto
Mikä tuote kuvaa teitä parhaiten ja miksi? 
I would say the VENLA, ADA and SINI bags. These bags are real classics and have iconic styling making it easy to identify them. The design is very minimalistic but unique as each bag consists of only one single piece of high-quality leather without any stitching. The inspiration comes from architecture and origami, and that’s what Väska is about - natural shapes and cuts that emerge from geometry.



Mitkä seikat tekevät tuotteistanne ympäristöystävällisen? 
VÄSKA works with locally-sourced, genuine natural vegetable tanned cow leather from Spain. Unlike chrome leather (chemically treated), vegetable tanned leather is treated with natural tannins and the end result is a genuine and lush appearance, and best of all, it ages beautifully.
