THE STORY BEHIND YAGA
YAGA was founded by Yasmin Proksch & Gabriel Roland in late 2014 whilst they where both studying Textile Design at the University of Derby in England.
They were collaborating on a different project when Yasmin had the idea to make a cardholder as a Christmas gift.
Back home in Vienna, it didn't take long for them to design a whole range of accessories, utilising the lasercutter and Rolaminate.
In late 2016 Yasmin took over YAGA as her own and replaced Rolaminate with recycled leather, sourcing offcuts from a German manufacturer. Together with her Grandmother, who is sewing almost every piece by hand, she's running the business since. Since 2018 we added a whole collection using vegetable tanned leather from Italy as the main material for our designs.
