Philosophy

Georgie and Jo, Founders of V by Townsley Vegan Bags & Accessories

Sisters-in-law Georgie and Jo are united by a passion for style and a belief in veganism, fair trade and sustainability.

Together, they began a journey to create a conscious brand that was compassionate to animals and the environment we live in, without compromising on luxury or design.

The result was V BY TOWNSLEY– thoughtfully crafted at every stage with care and compassion.

The Journey

The quest to find the perfect material for our bags involved visits to countless fabric mills and trade shows, with hundreds of fabric swatches touched.

Finally, Georgie and Jo found their dream material: a Japanese high-performance fabric that is redefining the experience of vegan leather. It offers the softness and subtle allure of animal leather, with engineered strength and durability.

They brought this groundbreaking fabric to a family atelier in the Abruzzo region of Italy, renowned for working with some of the world’s finest luxury brands. Here, the artisans applied the same expertise they had previously used with animal leather to bring V BY TOWNSLEY creations to life.
