“All our bags are handmade which makes them high in quality and robust, meaning that they can be loved, looked after, and used for longer.”

Organic cotton, hemp, jute, amongst other vegan fibers are used in the simple designs of the bags that are crafted to be timeless and appreciated with kindness. Ellyla’s accessories are composed of biodegradable plant-fibers locally cultivated by farmers and skilled artisans from India and Bangladesh, who are ethically supported in their workforce. The negative impact of the fast fashion industry has encouraged the eco-friendly brand to create an enduring purpose of integrity and respect towards the planet and people.

No plastic is used in the packaging process of the beautiful handmade Ellyla bags, as everything is 100% recyclable. Besides that, the brand offers a repair service to avoid waste, which only reassures its lower impact on the environment.

Biodegradability and sustainability are naturally linked to positive impacts involving the growth of the fashion industry, which is what the brand considers essential in the manufacturing process of fashion pieces, in addition to contributing to a cruelty-free environment. 

From large cross-over to clutch styles in pastel beige as well as cream color palettes, Ellyla’s collections convey fashion interdependance and elegance in the form of multi-purpose bags.
