VOLP

VOLP es un proyecto que me toca especialmente de cerca porque tienen su base en Valencia, mi casa. Ángela, fundadora de VOLP, es una apasionada de los relojes y los complementos y que además tiene una notable fascinación con el tiempo. Para ella, el tiempo es una prioridad en su vida. Y es que el tiempo es un elemento tan abstracto y a la vez tan concreto que es algo a lo que todos quizás deberíamos prestar más atención.

VOLP se puso en marcha en febrero de 2016 con la intención de mezclar esta fascinación por el tiempo y los relojes con el amor hacia la naturaleza y el respeto a los animales. VOLP no utiliza pieles animales en ninguno de sus productos. La palabra VOLP proviene de la raíz valenciana de Vulpes, denominación científica del zorro. Y el zorro de VOLP es negro porque en la Serra de Mariola de Valencia se descubrieron zorros negros fruto de una mutación genética.
Sus principales productos, los relojes y accesorios para mascotas, con certificación PETA por ser veganos y tienen diseños sencillos, unisex y funcionales. Los relojes tienen esfera analógica y las correas son intercambiables.

Puedes comprarlos AQUÍ.

VOLP really touches me as they are based in Valencia, which is my hometown and they are also good friends with one of my best friends so I feel especially proud to feature them. Ángela, the founder of the brand, is passionate about watches and has a strange fascination with the concept of time. She believes we often don’t pay enough attention to time and how it passes by without us realising. For her, time is a priority in life and that is part of the reason she embarked on this personal project. Time is an abstract concept that at the same time is so present in our lives, we cannot escape it.

VOLP launched as a brand in February 2016 with the aim of blending these two passions: watches and time, together with the love for animals and the planet. The brand wanted to raise concern about animal’s welfare and the need of looking for more sustainable materials. VOLP does not use animal skins in any of its products. The word VOLP comes from the latin root of Vulpes, which means fox. And the fox in the brand is of black colour because there’s a breed of foxes in the Mariola mountains in Valencia that are black due to a genetical mutation.

They design watches and pet leads mainly and all their products are PETA-approved vegan. They are functional, unisex and have a minimalistic design which makes them suitable for any occasion and great to wear on a daily basis.
