about

VOLTA, in Portuguese, means "to give back".

VOLTA ATELIER creates 100% hand-stitched upcycled leather handbags.

We carefully select discarded leather from accessories factories and our skilled artisans hand-stitch our one-of-a-kind products in Brazil.

VOLTA also supports women, providing them with an income source while they work from home, close to their families. Our artisans are women refugees from Haiti living in South Brazil.

Our mission is to encourage a circular economy, breathing life back into lost cultural heritages and growing communities from the ground up.
