Linen is one of our favourite yarns because it’s full of character (linen textiles are dotted with slubs – tiny, raised yarns that can only come from this natural fibre and that add such a lot of texture and interest), because it’s strong and long-lasting, and because its farming is easy on the environment (flax – the plant that creates linen – needs only the sun and the rain to grow).
While the outside of Bella is sewn from an undyed, stonewashed (for softness and for a gently faded look) linen, inside is a black and natural herringbone weave which is also repeated as a stripe down the outside edge, adding subtle detail and interest. The zip is an antique brass one with a linen pull, and a small tan leather tab stamped with a Neptune ‘N’ sits on the bottom side – more understated yet luxurious finishing touches.
When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.
From our own, white-glove service for delivering larger pieces in the UK and Ireland, to our courier and international partners, rest assured that we’ve done everything we can to make sure your order gets to you on time and in one, perfect piece.
Delivery’s also entirely free if you’re in the UK and spend over £50 (or €100 in Ireland).
We believe that returns should be easy, which is why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. And, you’ll also have 28 days to do so – just in case you need time to mull things over.
If your bag needs a thorough clean, we’d recommend dry cleaning to prevent shrinkage, but otherwise sponge cleaning is absolutely fine. Bella isn’t water resistant, so is perhaps more for cosmetics and other dry items rather than anything that could leak.
Need to knows
Because Bella is made from undyed natural linen, each one will vary a little in colour.
