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!

Shop policies

Last updated on October 7, 2018
VELLE is a home-based studio producing leather accessories located in the city of Surabaya in Indonesia. The leathers we use are remnants or surplus carefully sourced from factories that manufacture leather goods for the mass market. Some minor superficial imperfections are to be expected on these leathers due to numerous handling during the change of hands. However, more commonly the blemishes came originally with the animals.

We pride ourselves in being a waste-reducing brand by recovering and upcycling leather scraps that would have been piled as dead stocks or even buried in landfills.

This cost-effective practice allows us to craft our products using some of the finest leathers and offering them to our customers at an affordable price.

When it comes to the design of our products, we prefer clean aesthetic with minimal hardware and designs that are timeless with longevity that surpass seasons and trends.

Please browse through our selections and we hope that you'll fall in love with them!

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.
