What has happened to From Belo since we won the 2019 Best Green Handbag of 2019.
Emily Blumenthal, founder of the Independent Handbag Designer Awards interviews our co-founder Charlotte Bingham - Wallis on the journey post-Independent Handbag Designer Awards success in 2019.
The Independent Handbag Designer Awards also known as "The Handbag Oscars" was a game-changer for our business when we won with the Leka Tote Bag in June 2019. Winning the award helped give us the confidence to take the next step in our business as well as gifting us many opportunities to network with serious talent from across the globe.
Our Award-winning handbag the Red Leka Tote is created from recycled seat belts, recycled plastic bottles and excess fabrics from the fashion industry which were all destined from landfill. Every Leka tote purchased is powerful and helps feed 8 people in need.
In June 2019 we were also finalists for The Most Social Conscious Handbag of 2019 with our Lucia Tote bag. To find out why this bag was nominated click here.
