A TEAM EFFORT. Cervo Volante was founded in the spring of 2017 by Kadri Vunder Fontana, an experienced businesswoman and chemist, and Conny Thiel-Egenter, a passionate hunter and biologist, with the goal of transforming the latent value in hunting waste into premium leather products. Today, the Cervo Volante team is made up of seven individuals, each contributing his or her dedication and expertise to furthering the company’s success.
Together, we aim to fulfill the vision of the company: We love nature and want our children to be able to experience nature as beautiful and intact as we do. We want to create new traditions for our customers and for the fashion industry.
