Collection: From Belo

From Belo was born in 2018 when two school friends, one originally from the Amazonian rainforest of Brazil (Maria) and one from the English shires (Charlotte) were inspired to start a Kind and Sustainable Handbags Accessories Company. They joined forces to create beautiful, multifunctional and convertible handbags for a modern-day lifestyle from recycled material.  
From Belo stand true to their ethos of “Feeding Goodness into the World”. Every purchase has the power to change lives, whilst also being kind to the environment.
A perfect example of the circular economy, From Belo takes materials such as seatbelts once destined for landfill, crafts bags without cruelty or toxins and helps a poor and vulnerable community in Belo Horizonte, Brazil by providing jobs and food for the hungry – all from these true bags for life.

Eco Consciousness
Love the planet – From Belo’s sustainable designer handbags and accessories have been created using recycled materials to show that true beauty should never go to waste. Every From Belo product is made from refurbished seatbelts, plastic bottles and offcuts of fabric.
Whilst these seatbelts and other material were no longer suitable for their original purpose, they were destined for bigger and better things. Each seatbelt, plastic bottle and offcut of fabric has been given a new life as part of the From Belo products you see before you today.

Social Consciousness
All From Belo bags are crafted and manufactured to the highest quality and are produced by artisan workers in Brazil. From Belo work with a talented team of artisans and a small co-operative of 24 amazing workers, who are escaping poverty by crafting award-winning handbags. At From Belo, they are all respected, appreciated and paid fairly to be able to provide a comfortable (and dignified) life for their families.

Charitable
Every product purchased donates meals to the homeless and to those in need in the same community in Belo Horizonte (where their team is from), and via From Belo's partner charity Casa de Maria. From Belo aims to work with Casa de Maria to help break the circle of poverty by providing meals, education, a place to wash and emotional support to pursue a better life.

In 2019, From Belo was a finalist in two categories from the Independent Handbag Awards:
- The Lucia Woven Tote – For the Most Socially Conscious Handbag 2019 sponsored by Global Goods
- The Leka Tote – The Best Green Bag 2019 sponsored by Pinatex
From Belo also won The Best Green Bag of 2019.
