How Instagram Paved The Way For LokaLoka To Be In Your Closets

Arabian Business writes:

The social media platform helped many a start-ups launch their brands sans hefty marketing budgets. Because it hosts over 500 million global users, social media app, Instagram has inevitably become home to hundreds of thousands of small businesses – including many in the UAE.

LokaLoka sells so-called “practical” bags for women who care more about the bag than the label. 

Translating to “crazy” in Latin, LokaLoka represents women who are crazy about their own personal style and aren’t defined by big-name brands or trends.

Its owner Monique Wilson said Instagram helped her find like-minded customers. 

“From grassroots to a small budding business it never ceases to amaze me how we manage to find like-minded souls everyday through merely sharing our daily grind on Instagram.”

Do We All Miss Vanessa

Throwback to this wonderful feature by Lindsey a few years back when our Vanessa was creating quite a stir among the UAE moms' list of daily essentials. Humbly, this truly raked in some good reviews. Click the link below to know why.

And why the throwback? The ever dependable Vanessa will be back in our shelf very soon. Expect an improved and better version of the Vanessa we all have grown to love.

In our quest to fully align with our core purpose we made sure we have the best alliance one vegan brand can have next to their name - PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world with more than 6.5 million members and supporters.

For the love and respect of animals this is our contribution in their preservation: educating people that animal skins need not be in their closets but instead in their natural habitat. And that leatherfree alternatives are equally fashionable, highly durable and never boring.

It’s an honour to be in the roster of PETA-approved vegan brands. Check their website: www.peta.org
