Company Questions

How do you say Luvali?
“Luvali” pronounced “Luv-A-lee”, originates from the words “Love” and “Ali” (the founders’ daughter and granddaughter). Say “Luvali” fast and it sounds like “lovely”- a great way to describe our unique and fabulous product line! Luvali is “The Reversible Company”.

What is the story behind Luvali?
Shirley and Jacqueline are a mother and daughter team with a passion for design, a drive to create and a love for working together. Our products are convertible, reversible, changeable…and truly lovely or “luvali”.

While packing for a much needed vacation, Shirley was struggling with too many handbags and too many shoes! Her suitcase just wouldn’t close. Needless to say, a second suitcase was required since going with one handbag and one pair of shoes just wasn’t an option. It was at that moment that the entrepreneurial light bulb went on. Why not create one handbag with interchangeable slipcovers (we call them slips) that can change with your wardrobe, your mood or the season? Bring one handbag, lots of REVERSIBLE slips and you have many looks, day or night, for your vacation or your cruise! To top it off, no need to empty your contents to change your handbag AND if your handbag gets soiled, just slide on another slip or reverse it-fabulous!!

After countless visits to fabric stores and many late night tea parties, Luvali Convertibles was born (and so were Jacqueline and Shirley as newfound mompreneurs and grandmapreneurs respectively)!

We have since been inspired to expand Luvali Convertibles by the little people in their lives- Ali, Jack, Owen and Everett. Luvali has grown to include some wonderful convertible, reversible and changeable items for babies and kids at Luvali Baby & Kids. So unique, delightful and charming – we know you’ll just “luv” ‘em.

Where are Luvali products sold?
In addition to our online store, Luvali convertible handbags and Luvali baby & kids products are sold in a variety of boutiques, gift shops and other stores across Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. Check our Store Locator link to find the store closest to you!

Are Luvali products sold through home parties?
Yes! If you are interested in hosting or attending a Luvali home party, let us know! Everyone needs a girls night out- and there’s nothing better than combining friends with shopping (and maybe some wine and desserts thrown in!). Check out Luvali Home Parties for more information.
