At Lantinga Vita, their innovative designs seamlessly combine style, unparalleled versatility, and comfort. With a Lantinga Vita bag, made to last from hand-selected materials of the highest quality, you’re always prepared to achieve excellence. Lantinga Vita was founded on the idea to redefine how we carry. We set out to combine the functionality of high-performance sports bag and outdoor gear with luxurious materials that would stand the test of time. As we progressed, we saw first-hand how destructive the fashion industry could be. Moreover, as a global community we are facing an unprecedented environmental crisis in a global economy focused on short-term profits and the expense of our natural and human resources. It’s for these reasons that we set out to not only redefine how we carry, but redefine what success in business meant to us. We chose to go beyond the status quo by not only designing beautiful and functional products, but also ensuring that we are create a bright future for people who make and use our products, while considering our environmental footprint every step of the way.
