Volang is the vision of Kristel Delevante and Maia Grigolia. A brand that started out as a way for two passionate women to make a living while pursuing the dreams that brought them to NYC. Kristel Delevante originally began developing designs that were inspired by the current fashion trends in NYC, using age old hand knitting and crocheted skills passed down from her Northern European ancestors. Later joined by Maia Grigolia they continued to build a successful brand working closely with their costumers and listening to their needs to create truly unique and one of a kind pieces that keeps customers coming back season after season.
Volang’s designs are classic yet innovative with simple lines, striking colors and refined accent details. Each handmade item is made in New York using the highest quality novelty yarns. After years of participating in prestigious craft fairs and fashion events throughout the U.S. as well as Canada they now have three soon to be four locations in NYC’s Williamsburg, Soho, Lower East Side and for this January only Volang Pops Up at RSPop in Midtown.
