Tianna Meilinger's Profile
Vaya Bags was founded in 2005 by Tianna Meilinger. As an environmental scientist, Tia believes in reusing and recycling materials. That is why Vaya Bags are made using as much recycled and scrap material as she can find. The canvas used to make the bags is scrap and surplus material that is recycled from local sailboat factories. Tia also uses recycled bicycle tubes and old banners to make the bags and accessories.
Today Vaya bags has grown into a four-woman operation located in Queens, NY. In our workshop in Queens, Tia and friends hand-make all of Vaya Bags' products. Each bag, belt, or wallet is individually handmade with love and care!
