Our Story

Veshin will start its journey operating out of our current 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.

The main reason for how Veshin came about, is that Hongliang, is a converted buddhist & he wants to make positive environmental change. Having a business that specializes in animal leather is something that just does not align with his values now. It would be impossible overnight to change how the current factory, Hermia, operates which is why we created Veshin Factory. As it currently stands it will be a similar factory model to Hermia however the major difference will be any brand that works with Veshin we hope will align with our core values on sustainability, radical transparency, using vegan materials, raising consciousness & giving back to our wonderful planet.
