Hand-assembled in a small facility in Thailand, Vance Kitira’s bags provide creative work for around 20 Thai citizens. Fueled by his love for the environment and passion for people, Vance has been providing work for small suppliers in towns and villages of Thailand for over 20 years, helping to perpetuate the techniques and practices handed down through generations. In addition to his line of bags, Vance works with artisans to create an extensive line of home accents and other women's accessories.
A Thai native, Vance feels strongly about contributing to both his original homeland as well as his adopted one--the United States. In response to the devastation of the 2004 Tsunami, Vance Kitara International donated over $26,000 dollars to the Thai Red Cross Society. Since 2005 he has donated over 30 Block Toy Tables (of 650 blocks each) to schools and orphanages in both Thailand and the United States. Most recently distributed free candles from his home accents line, to his fellow Hurricane Sandy victims in New Falls, New Jersey, helping to bring a bit of light into their lives.
