About the Founders of V.GAN
Derrick Hoyle and Marcel Bordon were obsessed with shoes – so when they decided to launch their own brand, it was obvious that they would challenge one of fashion's biggest leather users, the footwear industry.
You do not have to harm animals or the planet to have a great lifestyle. There is another way – the V.GAN way."
