GLAD TO MEET YOU

Our story

Hi there!

We are Sara Plaga and Kim-Joar Myklebust, founders of Levante.

We come from two different countries, Italy and Norway, we both grew up with a passion for nature, outdoor activities and traveling which we now share together with our daughter Aurora.

We like discovering the world by sailing boat and camping car and living an essential and meaningful life to limit waste and ecological impact.

After working as employees, we realized that we want to make sure that what we are doing in our professional job also helps to take care of our planet and the environment.

For this reason we created Levante. Levante is our family project that refects our lifestyle and values.

The name Levante is a synonimous of our daughter's name Aurora and represents the sun rise in the East, hope, beauty and energy.

We believe that as humans and as a company we are responsible to do little a step every day towards a better planet and, as Gandhi said, be the change you want to see in the world.

Our mission is to inspire other people to live and travel in a sustainable and essential way
