Bella Backpack - Black



BELLA is a convertible leather bag and backpack that can be carried over your shoulder as a tote, or as a backpack when you'd like to go hands-free. Wide comfortable straps are ideal for extended wear, whether that's hung over your arm, or adjusted to wear on your back.

Bella was designed to look chic enough to take into a board room (and will fit your laptop and files) yet to be practical enough to carry all your things on a day to day basis, whether it’s a shopping day or on the commute home, or to store your baby's things as a baby bag.

Ideal for travel, Bella lies completely flat when empty.

Available with either a Black or Beige lining.

 A note from our founder: You asked for a backpack and we've gone one better - a convertible bag that can be carried over your shoulder as a tote, or as a backpack when you'd like to go hands-free. The epitome of a multi-tasker Enjoy! Love, Monica x

Bella - perfect work/commuting bag!

I absolutely love my new Bella backpack/tote! I now feel stylish and chic on my way to work, instead of sensible and boring as I had been with my regular backpack. My laptop is a wee bit larger than the size mentioned for the Bella, but with a little care I can fit it in. The interior is black also which does make it harder to see/find things - that would be my only negative. If the Bella is made in a dark tan in the future, I would most definitely buy it. I wish I had had this bag in my life when travelling overseas in the past - it would have been perfect!

Style and comfort combined

I love this bag! The quality and usability are awesome. As a busy mum, I love how easily it changes from shoulder bag to backpack. I only wish it were deeper so I could get more in it as a baby bag too.

Bella Backpack

Totally stylish and I bought 2. Thank you @stylingyou for influencing my purchase. ***** star rating from me.

Adore the Bella Backpack

This is such a great bag. I bought it in both colours. It’s the perfect fit between style and function. The leather is Devine.

Bag of My Dreams

I’d been on the hunt for a backpack for two years, searching in Canada (where I live), New Zealand (where I’m from), California and New York (where I’d travelled to), to no avail. Until — after listening to a podcast about Vestirsi and heading over to their website — I found the backpack of my dreams. And, the fact that it has an alter ego, converting to a classic handbag when the situation calls for such an accessory... is genius.
