Angana Maheshwari

Founder & CEO

Angana Maheshwari has always aspired to make the world a better place. Throughout her life, she has believed in giving back, whether it’s through fund raising or volunteering to help underserved communities all over the world. She wants to make a more positive impact on the world around her and is proud to be part of the generation that is the driving force behind ethical consumerism.

While trying to find a sustainable vegan leather handbag during the pandemic, the lack of options for classically designed, well-made, practical, and affordable 100% recycled bags led her to start Veganologie. She dove headfirst into handbag production, something she’d never done before.

Angana has lived all over the world and is a true global citizen. She was born in India and raised in Germany and Luxembourg, then moved to London, New York, and now Dubai, where she lives and works today. She completed her undergraduate degree from New York University (NYU) and then graduated with an MSc in Media and Communication from London School of Economics (LSE), giving her the skills to accurately create a business where transparent communication is at the core of its values.
