OUR STORY

Finnish designer Outi Korpilaakso found her lost inspiration from the passion to find new ways for creating fashion. We at Lovia are dedicated to constantly develop ideas for a better future, yet never compromising on our strong values or timeless design. This team is truly dedicated to make a difference. 

Discover the roots with the

Product DNA.

 

The DNA reveals the full history of the bag you are holding.
Get to know each material, artisan, production step and the actual cost of every one of them.

Materials

The core of the brand ideology is to create designs based on existing materials rather than passing trends. This means, we use materials that already exist and are leftovers for someone else. Our main leathers are excess leather from Finnish furniture factories, elk leather from Nordic population control hunting and salmon skin left over as a by-product from food industry.

ethical luxury bag production

PRODUCTiON

Our bags are produced by Italian luxury artisans near Milan. They have accepted our challenge to turn even the smallest pieces of excess leather into beautiful accessories. The jewellery is crafted by our Helsinki-based 3D goldsmith. He has created the unique pine cone surface into our iconic jewellery from real pine cone scales.

MAKERS

There is a story behind the makers of each product and material. Our Italian artisans have several generation's experience in luxury bag production. The goldsmith in Helsinki is a craftman with 3D design skills. Each material source has a team of passionate entrepreneurs behind. Together they will ensure that even the smallest of the details are handcrafted perfectly.

TRANSPARENT PRICING

The increase in selling prices while quality is lowered has been a relevant problem in the fashion industry. We want to keep producing the highest possible quality, while taking the prices to a level we believe is fair. Through stepping out from the traditional retail, we are able to make our costs 100% transparent and take full control of our prices. This means that for the first time - you are able to know exactly what it cost to produce your bag and be able to get artisan crafted treasures with accessible prices.
