Founded by Felipe Ruiz Vera in Bogotá in 2017, Vera is a menswear-oriented clothing brand handcrafted in Colombia and Turkey.
The name of “Vera” is inspired by the name of its founder’s family, which has been traditionally producing the best quality leather in Colombia for more than five decades through three generations.
Motivated with the family culture and experience to own a tannery, the latest generation members of “Ruiz Vera” family have initiated their genetic vision for urging a relaxed and authentic approach to design leather jackets for men. The result is an aesthetic, peppered with some attitude and creation of the menswear articles that are not aligned to any one trend.
Driven with its success in leather jacket design, Vera decided to challenge itself in creating incredibly comfortable, sustainable and functional cloths and accessories for men made from sustainable, organic cotton and leather chrome- free with production in Colombia and Turkey.
Vera is inspired by people who are seeking a stylish and comprehensive wardrobe that blurs the boundaries between both casual and chic.
Whilst doing so, we value premium quality and integrity without compromise.
Vera finds and blends the ingredients for perfection and is dedicated to creating pieces which last a decade not a season.
Excellence, creativity and premium quality are the guiding principles of Vera. We combine respect for individuals and the environment, preserving artisanal skills and supporting our brand’s legacy so that people can enhance their distinctiveness.
