Last time I bought a leather bag online was a few years back, I made a promise to myself at that time, I will never do that again, and here I come. Morelle is a feature seller of Etsy with a very high selling numbers. This fact made me feel like I should be fine buying leather bag online this time. The bag was delivered in a big flat package nicely wrapped. It is a little bit slouchy as I want to. It's worth every dollar I paid for, will definitely order again in other colour, may be next year :)

Get your Christmas gifts in time! The countdown has begun. Oh and we offer free gift-wrapping!
Yes! Etsy named morelle as "3 - Need -to - Know bag designers"! Huge win for us to be picked among thousands of other talented designers!

We did an ad hoc photoshoot yesterday when three things came magically together; two beautiful (willing) models, a photographer and an old house. We had lots of fun and finished the day over some tsipouro! Could every work day be like this? ;)

Morelle: Twin sisters dream

Morelle is owned by twin sisters Jenny and Katie Grigoratou. It was founded in 2007 by Katie in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Katie is a self-taught designer with nothing but pure creative power and resolve. She started morelle completely as a hobby on the side of her full time job, learning as she went along. In less than a year after she started, she had quit her full time job and Etsy even invited her to be a featured seller.

After a couple of years of success and a break due to personal circumstances Katie was back to the sewing table and this time her sister Jenny followed.

While Katie is the creative one, Jenny is the analytical genius. They both knew that to run a label you need both creativity and to be business savvy and that together they would have the perfect match.

Morelle-designs combine feminine style with practicality. The basic style of the bags is chic, stylish and a little bit playful. At the same time they are all functional and built to resist the everyday wear and tear. Katie's unconventional introduction to design has resulted in unusual and maybe a little bit quirky design style.

Morelle bags are made with genuine Italian cowhide leather. We try to use the best materials available so our bags will be sturdy and last forever.

Shop policies

Last updated on February 20, 2016
Welcome to our shop!

We want your morelle experience to be as pleasurable as possible. Please read our policies below carefully to make your purchase smooth and easy.

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with Visa
  • Pay with Master Card
  • Pay with American Express
  • Pay with Discover
  • Pay with PayPal
  • Buy with Apple Pay
  • Pay with Sofort
  • Pay with iDeal
  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
We accept paypal and credit card payments.

Here is a tutorial on how to complete payment with a credit card:
We always ship with registered mail so you will need to sign your package upon receipt. For this reason it might be wise to have your bag delivered to your work address.
Items are shipped within one week of received payment.

Items are shipped with International Priority Registered Mail. You will receive a tracking number to follow the progress of your package. Please note, we do not send by courier but by regular postal service. This means to track your package you need to track the package with your own country's postal service. For example, for the US it would be USPS, for Canada it would be Canada Post. The package will appear once it has entered the country so check about 3 days after you receive your tracking number.

Delivery dates from the shipping date range from one to two weeks for the US, Canada and Australia and it takes about one week for Europe. Please note, it is normal for a week or two delay, items may be held in customs for check.

We always ship to your ETSY address. Please make sure that this address is correct and updated. If you want us to ship your bag to another address send us a message.


Packages may be held in customs (although very rare) and therefore be delayed. You will be able to see if your package is held in customs via the tracking information.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns are possible. If your bag is not exactly what you expected then you can return it provided you return it within 1 to 2 days of receipt. We will refund you the amount of the bag minus the shipping cost. Please contact us if you would like to return your bag for instructions on how to do so.

Refunds will NOT be given if:

- A bag does not get back to us because of fault of the buyer.
- The bag has been used and/or has signs of wear & tear

Please note that specifications on the size of the bag are on the listing. Please make sure you read these correctly so you don't receive a bag that is not the size you expected. Please also note that colors may vary from display to display. We try to display the colors as accurately as I can but capturing the correct color on a picture is quite hard (I'm not a professional photographer) and in addition colors appear different from screen to screen. If the color is not what you expect it please send back the bag asap and you will receive a refund.


We accept exchanges on the same terms as the refund. As soon as we receive the bag and make sure that it is in top condition then we can send you your other selected bag. The buyer will have to pay for the shipping cost of both bags.
Additional policies and FAQs

Due to a high volume of orders we do not take custom orders.


For wholesale orders please contact us for more info.


Your bags come with care instructions. Some hides are more sensitive than others so to be safe we would always recommend that you take your bag to a professional leather dry cleaner and seek for advice on what is more appropriate for your bag.



We highly value Quality and Customer Care. The amazing feedback we've received over the years is a testament to our values. If you're not entirely satisfied with your purchase please contact us and we'll be happy to address your concerns.
