I am absolutely in love with our new line of bags and backpacks. We used a very special fabric that is made in part from recycled plastic bottles gathered in the slums of Port-au-Prince. Knowing that people in Haiti and in other developing countries are being paid to clean up the environment by picking up plastic for recycling makes my heart so happy! If you have followed Vi Bella from the beginning, that is so similar to where we began. We paid local boys to collect plastic bottles which our artisans used to make into beads for jewelry making. I feel like this connection with our sewing team to recycling brings us full circle.
I can't choose just one product from our Fall Collection, so I'm going to share six that are on the top of my list for this season.
With a Haitian sourced leather bottom, special thread fabric that is 50% poly from recycled plastic bottles and 50% cotton, gorgeous accent fabrics in either dusty blue or coral, and sturdy, attractive brass hardware; this backpack is a knockout! We are so proud of our designer, Elizabeth, for her work developing this and our backpack team who is doing a great job making these beauties.
What can I say? This piece is just the right size and absolutely beautiful. It is made from Haitian leather, bronze hardware, and it is "Oh, so cute!"
This is the bag I will take everywhere! It is roomy, classy, and upgraded with new and improved, sturdy, stitched Haitian leather handles, a magnetic closure, and a fun accent of Haitian sourced cow horn with leather tassel. Made with canvas that is 50% poly from recycled plastic bottles, 50% cotton. It is fully lined with a fun print and available in two colors.
We've been waiting for this one or a while! Everyone here at the home office has "dibs" on their own Danielle Necklace when it launches. The perfect "wear anywhere with anything" style, this very special piece features handcrafted cow horn. Perfect with the Mia earrings.
Add a hint of sparkle with this dainty drop necklace. The Kirbee necklace features genuine moonstone in warm shades of blush and gold.
I love how great these silk coral tassel earrings look with the other fall products! These earrings are specially handcrafted in Mexico by specially mixing and setting resin with sparkles. If pink isn’t for you, they are also available in black, The Tabitha Earrings.
