Born in London, currently made in Ireland Vel-Oh is a cycling couture brand that redefines the nature of how we commute in style. Vel-Oh engages fashion and design-conscious cyclists. Each product is handmade by the founders using high quality waxed cotton and genuine leather with a nod to their polka dot obsession.
Zulfi and Greta are the husband and wife team behind the brand and both urban cyclists. As commuters they noticed that cycling bags were either aesthetically challenged and practical or vice versa. This sparked extensive discussions on why this was and how they could create the best of both worlds. The next nine months were spent working on a symbiotic approach to this problem and creating a product that the cyclist would find both practical and desirable. One year down the road and they had their first samples at Spin London 2014 followed by shows such as Milk & Sugar, Eroica Britannia and many more and finally launched in May 2015.
Their goal is to bring form, function and style to the cycle to work commuter, with the emphasis on all our products now being handmade by us wherever they are.
