From Belo – Grey BomBom Clutch
This little clutch bag packs a serious punch, switching from evening purse, to easy-going shoulder bag, cross body or even hands free bum bag.
Part of the latest EKO collection, handmade in Brazil from decommissioned seat belts.
Founded by high school friends Char and Maria, From Belo reflects their shared vision of creating a fully transparent and socially responsible accessories brand. Whilst on their respective quests to live more ethically the two bag lovers found themselves searching for the perfect handbag, something beautiful, versatile enough to keep up with their busy lives and environmentally friendly. Maria had experience running a socially responsible clothing company in Brazil and Char volunteered as a physiotherapist in Latin America where she was horrified to see the living conditions and lack of opportunities for people in poorer areas.
After making the decision to take matters into their own hands From Belo was launched via Kickstarter in November 2017. Everything made at From Belo is repurposed and reshaped with the meticulous craftsmanship of human hands and kind hearts. From Belo creates ethical fashion with the firm belief that the seeds of kindness are sewn through everyday actions starting with the dignity of fair wages, ethical trade, and giving back from where they take. Not only do they create fashion that is beautiful, they also create fashion that is kind, with kindness seen as true beauty. With their latest ‘EKO’ collection seven unique bags and accessory designs have been created using reincarnated materials to show that true beauty should never go to waste. Bags are created using decommissioned seat belts that were soon to be relegated to landfill or burnt and plastic bottles that were heading to landfill.
Great pride is taken in practicing the principles of Fairtrade and success is shared with the communities that inspire Char and Maria to try and make a difference at every step. With this in mind for each bag sold meals are donated to a Non-Profit Organisation located in the slums of Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
From Belo’s Vision is Repurpose Everything, Elevate Everyone and Cultivate Kindness.
