Our Story

A husband and wife with bags in common!

Why did we start Vel-Oh? Why does anybody start a business? to make life as hard as possible for themselves.... It actually all started with Zulfi and I getting cheap old bikes to cycle to work - mostly to save time and money on our daily commute. After months of wearing cotton totebags that would get soaked or ugly backpacks we decided to make a bag for ourselves that we wouldn’t have to hide under our desk. A bag "we" would be proud of. So after a few sketches on a napkin in the pub we entered a 24 hour sewing marathon and finished our first prototype. The idea was just to make ourselves a bag each but we enjoyed the whole process too much to end it there. That was the night Vel-Oh was started.




Impossible drives us forward

When we started every issue seemed like climbing it’s a small mount Everest, but the excitement always tipped the scales to the other side. But if we had to point at one thing, It would have to be marketing. We have always found it extremely difficult and still struggle to get Vel-Oh "out there". It a question of how do we get people to see our brand, vision and products the way we do.

-----

As a company our vision is to stay small & sustainable and keep creating. As humans we can’t quite put a finger on what starts the fire in our belly. It can be a roll of yellow fabric, a custom bag order, a new leather tool. It’s mostly the small things that give us that spark.
