Surf and skate lifestyle brand Vans loves a good fashion collab. This time, they've joined forces with LA-based, globally-conscious brand Della in rolling out colorful batik versions of their bestselling kicks and more, available as of right this minute.

Featuring one-of-a-kind designs created by talented textile artisans in Ghana, the eco-friendly range includes the sneaker brand's classic slip-ons and low-tops ($60), hi-tops ($70), clutches and bags ($29.50 and $48). We sat down with Della founder Tina Tangalakis to chat about what inspired her to start the line, where she stocks up on stylish, sustainable clothing and more. Check out a few pieces from the line and read on after the jump.
