VOGATHA is the name of a small arctic fox living in Iceland. There are still many arctic foxes hunted because for their fur.
She was found with horrifying chain injuries. Fortunately, she was able to be released back into the wild a few weeks later. We hope she rejoined her family and is living well in nature.
In her honor, the name VOGATHA is the symbol of our rescue campaign and our practice in the fashion industry.
SAVING THE ARCTIC FOX
The arctic fox lives in some of the most frigid extremes on the planet. Its fur is beautiful and has the warmest and most insulating capacity recorded among mammals.
For this reason, the number of arctic foxes decreased drastically around the start of the 20th century as they were hunted for their fur.
It is only when people stop buying fur that the terrible suffering of these beautiful animals will end.
Life’s most persistent and urgent question is,
“What are you doing for others?”
- Martin Luther KING Jr. -
FUR FOR THE ANIMALS
Animals need their fur more than we do. Our belief is that fur is worn by beautiful animals, but ugly people. It is our responsibility to be comfortable in our own skin, and let animals keep theirs.
“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened .”
- Anatole France –
Fur is the most unnecessary luxury products in the world. One of our key campaign goals is to reduce the supply, demand, and social acceptance of fur in fashion.
We aim to end the full cycle of the fur industry, from the traps all the way to the retail outlets selling fur and leather goods.
It is our hope that our product development strategy will develop in a similar way to the evolution of nature.
Today, many fashion lovers are choosing to buy fur free to keep up with the trends in an ethical way, choosing not to support products that are not environmentally or ecologically friendly.
We firmly believe there is no need to sacrifice fashion for environmentally friendly products or vice versa, and are constantly seeking the perfect balance.
Our design concept is to combine advanced technology with industrial-grade fabric, stock fabric, and recycled material sourced from all over the world, and use it to create hip, high quality accessories that give our customers the perfect portable expression of their own inspired style.
We make beautiful, eco-friendly fashion bags in a way that will save lives and build a world that everyone can love, and feel good about!
Our goal at VOGATHA is to combine inspired and unique styling with everyday functionality.
