Our manufacturer is based in Belo Horizonte in Brazil and run by Wilson. Wilson has 15 years of experience of running factories producing shoes, bags and accessories for some of the worlds leading brands.
Globalisation has lead to brands shifting their production of lower-wage economies such as China and Paraguay, which Wilson was unable to compete with. This lead to Wilson having to shut down his factory.
Wilson was running a small leather repair shop when we were looking for a manufacturer. He was highly recommended by the local community for his leather craftsmanship and skills. We met him and loved his work.
Wilson has now set up a small team of talented workers including his wife and son to produce From Belo products.
Every member of the team involved with making From Belo bags will only work in ethical conditions and be paid a fair wage. This way you know your From Belo bag is more than a brand. We are a family and we believe you have to look after your family.
with love from
