Upon receiving the bag, I thought the bottom seam of it could be better. After more than a month wearing this bag almost everyday, I would say that this one is definitely a best friend in a bag form. Versatile and even after the color has slightly altered by dust and grime on the daily, it still looks adorable. Only minor cleaning every once as needed. Nice suede interior. Smooth zipper. For the future buyer, this bag perfectly carries simple essentials: a wallet, keys, a mobile phone, a foldable umbrella, a pocket notebook, and a small pouch. Usually I try not to bring many stuffs inside it so that the look of the bag remains effortless. Even I use this bag as a mini weekender as I've discovered how. But still, the seam at the bottom could use some improvement, and the bag would be perfect. Happy to call this bag mine. :-D
Velle Leather Bags
In 2010 I followed the man of my dreams back to my native country of Indonesia, in the process leaving a part of my heart back in Los Angeles.
Though my educational and professional background is in biology, specifically medical technology, the idea of being holed up in the four walls of a laboratorium didn't really appeal to me.
After dabbling in teaching, I was just itching to make my own little business. I had always loved making things ever since I was little.. from hair clips and brooches that I would wear to school, to joining the pottery club and sewing my own tops and skirts when I got older.
I started Velle early 2011 after a chance discovery of an awesome scrap leather store one random afternoon. Searching inside my closet for inspiration, I found a simple faux leather clutch and replicated it. Soon I was adding more and more styles and found a real passion in making and selling these leather bags.
Thank you for your interest in my bags and supporting me on this Etsy journey!

Additional policies and FAQs
Each purse comes in an individual cotton canvas dust bag for storage and protection.
I LOVE wholesale orders! However, due to the nature of handmade goods and distinct individual character of remnant leathers, there will be differences in the shades of color and markings on the leather. Be informed that with remnant leathers, there might be scratches or other imperfections. Colors of leather also depend on availability. Please contact me to discuss your order.
::::::::::: How To Clean Leather :::::::::
To spot clean your leather goods, use a small amount of non-greasy body lotion on a soft cloth and lightly wipe it off. Please test on an inconspicuous area of the bag beforehand to ensure that the lotion does not leave a permanent stain on the leather.
