In Swahili, the word ona (pronounced ō'na) means, “to feel,” “to believe,” and “to experience with the eyes.”
I love photography, so I carry my camera everywhere. On dreamy vacations. To Sunday brunch with friends, and family gatherings. But I loathed carrying a camera bag that was clunky and distracting. I even tried stuffing my camera into a stylish non-camera bag, wrapping it in scarves or t-shirts and hoping it wouldn’t come in contact with my other stuff. Inevitably, it did. And my camera ended up with the nicks and scratches to prove it.
In summer 2010, I launched ONA with a simple vision: to offer style-conscious photographers bags and accessories that complemented their life and style. Today, we are thrilled to offer a range of products that meet the needs of diverse creative professionals – from photographers, to designers, to entrepreneurs on the go. Thank you for visiting our site, and we hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy creating them.
