Their aim was to create beautiful and versatile bags that were capable of keeping up with the busy lives of modern women.

The principles central to the brand, was for the bags to be environmentally friendly and socially responsible.

The products have been thoughtfully designed and created with recycled materials. Materials such as unused deadstock leather, decommissioned seatbelts and plastic bottles. All materials have been saved from landfill to reduce waste.

From Belo sustainable handbags are crafted and manufactured by artisan workers in Brazil. Priding themselves in giving ethical working conditions and fair wages to workers.  Not to mention naming products in their collection after each member.
