Antonia and Gunilla Valier
We devoted the first part of our lives to the company founded by our grandfather in the 1930s, which our parents managed for many years. We have worked hard, reliably and responsibly because that is the right thing to do. Then, as fate would have it, the time came for us to choose what to do with the rest of our lives. It was nice. For the first time, we were able to do the thing we loved: create beautiful objects, made with care using local knowledge and talented artisans.
And so the ValierVenetia brand was born, and in its wake, the Valier tote. It was a vague notion at first, more of a dream than an object. Then, little by little, things began to take shape and the idea became an object with clear outlines and distinctive features.
