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.

Shop policies

:: Shipping WORLDWIDE - please see shop policies for details ::

:: Loddelina is a brand of handmade fashion accessories. Each handbag, purse, tote or decorative object is unique, carefuly designed and decorated with embroidery, applique, print, beads, strings or ribbons, so every piece is one of a kind!

:: Each Loddelina bag, purse, tote or pouch is designed by me from the moment I draw my pattern on the paper to the last stitches of hand-made embroidery and sewing on the beads, ribbons and appliques.

:: Have you seen something you would like in another colour, size or material? Convo me, I will be delighted to work with you on a custom item!

:: made in a smoke-free home

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Other Method
:: I accept Pay Pal, credit card payment and bank transfers (for EU countries it is usually charge free).

:: 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.
:: Your Loddelina will be shipped to your Etsy address in 1 business day after the payment comes through (custom made items will be shipped as stated in their listing)

:: 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.
Refunds and Exchanges
Public holidays and other seasonal events may delay your package. I can't take responsibility for items lost in the mail that haven't been sent with tracking and insurance but please let me know if you have any concerns about the arrival of your item.

I wish every Loddelina item would find the right home - if by any chance you are not happy with your purchase, let me know and we will work together towards resolving the issue.
