Belo Bag - Upcycled Leather

About Belo

Belo works with local leather artisans in Brazil to create beautifully handcrafted accessories from up-cycled materials. Their designs are functional and versatile, with the Classic Belo Bag quickly transforming from a cross-body bag to a backpack. Following the slow fashion philosophy, Belo bags are designed to be loved and worn for years to come, and will develop a natural, unique patina over time. 

Supporting Belo Horizonte, Brazil 

Belo is determined to use sustainable fashion as a tool to support the community of Belo Horizonte, Brazil- the hometown of one of the founders.  Belo provides fair employment for talented artisans that have few other economic opportunities in the region, and also work closely with a non-profit called Casa De Maria that helps to support the local community. Through their partnership with Casa De Maria, Belo donates 6 plates of food for each bag sold. So far they have donated roughly 300 plates of food and hope to continue and grow to ‘feed goodness into the world’.
