Helga Douglas,SvalaOriginally from Sydney but now living in Los Angeles, the inspiration for Svala’s name comes from Iceland, where Helga’s mother is from. Svala is an  Icelandic girl’s name, which means swallow in Icelandic.

The swallow bird symbolizes love, loyalty, freedom, and hope in many cultures – everything Helga wanted her brand to stand for. Svala is inspired by Helga’s love of animals and nature, her affinity for the relaxed, colorful feel of Sydney and LA, and the simplicity of Scandinavian design. ( from her website)

Svala stands for high-quality vegan products, handcrafted, a brand focus on sustainability and giving back.

Produced locally in Los Angeles, each Svala handbag is crafted by artisans. Chosen to be a direct-to-customer company allows them to offer you the best of sustainable luxury with a modern approach to pricing and access.

Svala does very much for Organizations that try to stop the illegal wildlife trade and participate in reducing their carbon footprint to help our planet.
