About Us


For the love of all things beautiful and the appreciation of timeless style, On Y Va wholeheartedly sources only products that are original and of exceptional quality.

 Reflecting this sentiment, we introduced our Spanish leather sandals (traditionally known as avarcas or menorquinas ) to the South African market three years ago, and more recently, our rattan handbags.  

  Our avarcas come from Menorca and have been worn by the locals for decades for their comfortable, durable and cool qualities.  They remain a wardrobe staple in Spain and have fast become a must have fashion item throughout Europe, and now South Africa. The combination of luxurious quality, style and comfort will have you wanting one in every colour! 

The same applies with our handwoven rattan handbags from Indonesia, Balinese artisans have been crafting them for years using Ata Grass due to its moisture resistant and durable nature.  Our Bali Bags are the accessory to don this summer and their unique styles make them treasured pieces you'll be able to enjoy wearing for years to come.

on y va [pronounced "on-ee-va"] is a little French saying that means "on our way!" / "lets go!"  Where to?  That's up to you, but your On Y Va sandals and handbag will make sure you get there in style!
