Vunilagi Vou is a living organism that’s constantly changing - a unique way of doing “business” that opposes traditional and limiting corporate business models. The enterprise has experienced a series of changes since its inception, but Tavola’s “transformative” curatorial knowledge and expertise has always steered the Vunilagi Vaka in the right direction.
