Von-Röutte was born to design uncomplicated bags & wallets for weekend adventures & everyday use. Founded in Sydney by Gus Agra & Marina Tokarski, Von-Routte's main inspiration comes from three simple Nordic values: to be simple, functional and beautiful. Our name pays homage to those who are always on a route. Both Marina and Gus were born in Brazil but only met each other at the University in Australia. Right after graduation, both started working for big companies in Sydney. It was when they had the idea of designing a bag so they could work and travel with the same gear. In 2015 the hobby became a business. "Simplicity and minimalism have always inspired us in everything we do. The values from modernism are rooted in our ideas. The brand name means "on a route" and is purposely a tribute to the Scandinavian design, which continues to define us as a company. Functionalism, simplification of forms and affordability are keywords that come first in our dictionary."
