Founded in 2004 by French entrepreneurs Sébastien Kopp and François-Ghislain Morillion after a trip to Brazil to tap into the burgeoning cotton and rubber plantation industry. With an ambitious view to support local manufacturing industries, most of Veja’s products will source its materials from natural sources such as organic cotton and wild Amazonian rubber. The brand maintains emphasis on reducing its impact on the environment by thinking considered design, ethical production and less waste.
