Veshin started its journey operating out of Joey’s business partner, Hongliang’s factory: Hermia. Hermia has been around for about 10 years and to date has specialized in manufacturing premium luxury leather goods.
Veshin was born out of Hongliang’s journey converting to a budhist mindset and wanting to make positive environmental change. Having a business that specializes in animal leather was something that did not align with his new values. It would be impossible to change how the current factory, Hermia, operates overnight, which is why we established Veshin Factory.
As it currently stands, Veshin will be a similar factory model to Hermia, however, the major difference will be any brand that works with Veshin will align with our core values on sustainability, radical transparency, using leather alternatives, raising consciousness & giving back to our wonderful planet.
Whilst the fashion industry has strived to become more sustainable over the last decade, manufacturers have struggled to keep pace with the speed of change required, Veshin has made it a priority.
