Fit All Your Daily Needs - At Home Or Abroad

"It was the perfect hand luggage on the flight, and large enough to use for overnight trips" - Kim

The standard Bella can fit your daily essentials with ease, including a 13inch laptop. For those with a large laptop, or for days you need to carry more or for overseas travel or a night away, the Bella XL provides that extra bit of room you need to carry a lot, without being weighed down.

Due to its beautiful streamlined design, the Bella bag is deceptively spacious while not having the appearance of being bulky at all. Go from office to the playground, gym to the café, university to the pub, library to the airport all without missing a beat.

Bella will fit seamlessly into your life, for everyday use and adventures beyond.

    Loved the packaging, customer service with a personal card enclosed. The bag is all that i thought it would be. Functional and stylish, big and soft. It does have a strong smell...I'm guessing from leather...I do wish there was more care instructions.

    Fabulous convertible bag

    Love this bag so much. Monica and the team posted it to me ready for my 2 week Bali trip. It is both practical and luxurious. Have used it as a backpack on difficult footpath walks and as a tote. Highly recommend . Perfect for the plane carry on too.

    Travel bag

    I am packing for a long-haul plane trip and needed a big bag like this. The team were so helpful when I reached out for sizing help as I was worried it might overwhelm my shape and size being a short gal. It fits everything I need to bring, and I have tested it packed wearing it on the shoulder, crossbody and backpack - it's comfy. It will become my work bag for future use too.
