Shipped the day after I ordered it, with a kind note from the seller. Just as beautiful as in the picture, even the lining is pretty! Sturdy and easy to clean.

The tote is exactly how I expected, actually even better. It's perfectly made inside and outside. Very chic, elegant, stylish I have gotten tons of compliments. It is very classy although it is "only" a tote.
Loddelina handbags and more
It all started in 2001, a few years after I graduated from fashion and textile design at University of Ljubljana.
It suddenly occured to me that the most common item in my closet were not shoes like in so many women's wardrobes, but handbags!
Somehow I have managed to bring home a handbag, purse or a tote from every holiday and trip I took. It was time to start making bags myself...
I prefer using single colour fabrics of different structure and feel so I can decorate them myself - with beads, lace, applique or freefoot embroidery, not appearing randomly but following the shape of the bag.
I love fabrics and will also use printed designs when I can complement them with my own hand work. I have recently started adding some small home decor items to my shop, like little fabric house brooches and ornaments.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
- Other Method
:: I ship the items as soon as the payment is cleared - you will get a shippment notification email.
:: Etsy shipping calculator isn't always accurate so I will refund any overcharged shipping back to your account.
:: I ship all my items in padded envelopes via La Poste France priority airmail.
Since a significant increase (185%) in international shipping costs for small packages, thicker than 3 cm (1.5"), starting Jan. 1st 2015, I am forced to wrap my larger bags in plastic foil and squeeze them in thin enough envelopes to keep the shipping costs reasonable
- that means that upon arrival the bags might require some light ironing if they are made of fabric or to be left out stretched at the room temperature to regain their shape.
If you have any additional questions regarding care, I am always at your disposal.
Thank you for your understanding.
:: If you would like your package to be sent with tracking and insurance, please contact me for more information before purchase.
:: Unfortunatelly I do not have any influence over eventual customs duties or taxes in your country.
