Luxury vegan handbags & apparel

Svala was founded to create beautiful, stylish pieces that are animal-friendly and produced sustainably. Svala began as a line of lingerie, sleepwear and loungewear made in Los Angeles with fabrics such as organic cotton and reclaimed factory surplus lace. We have now expanded our range to include luxury, vegan, handcrafted handbags. Svala handbags are handcrafted in Los Angeles from premium, vegan, PVC-free fabrics such as luxurious, Italian PU, Piñatex® (made from pineapple leaf fiber) and cork. Each Svala handbag is lined with fabric made from organic cotton and recycled polyester made with plastic bottles. 10% of Svala’s profits are donated to various animal and environmental charities and they also participate in a carbon offset program.

Svala is owned and designed by Helga Douglas who is originally from Sydney but now lives in Los Angeles. The inspiration for Svala’s name comes from Iceland, where Helga’s mother is from. Svala means “swallow” in Icelandic and this bird is a symbol of love, loyalty, freedom and hope in many cultures. Svala is inspired by the relaxed, colorful feel of Sydney and LA and the simplicity of Scandinavian design.

ORUM RESIDENCE BY SPF: ARCHITECTS

Design | January 24, 2022

Perched atop a Bel Air hilltop, Orum is a three-level, 18,800-square-foot home designed to subtly 'float' above its environs. Given its prominent positioning above a relatively developed neighborhood, the motivation behind the design of the home was to create a residence that could meld into its surroundings while maximizing views. The three-story structure, which takes on the shape of a three-winged propeller, is wrapped in glass that mirrors its sweeping views of the Los Angeles Basin, unobstructed from the Getty Center to Long Beach, Century City, and Downtown.
