The Mini Nilza is not just a day-to-day handbag, it is your best friend! Taking the weight off your shoulders with its strong but elegant seat belt straps, the Nilza tote bag is tough and durable by nature and able to carry more than could ever seem possible - much like the woman who inspired it, Dona Nilza - the founder of From Belo's partner charity "Casa de Maria".
Like most things, it's the inside that counts, and the Mini Nilsa won't let you down! Once you open up the zip on top, you'll find an organised heaven inside with 3 pockets on one side - built to fit your phone, wallet and power bank - and then the other side has a zipped pocket to keep everything that needs to be a little bit more secure and safe.
Made by a team of artisans based in Belo Horizonte in Brazil.
Each bag comes wrapped in a From Belo dustbag.
Meals donated to Casa de Maria for every Mini Nilza Tote Bag sold.

About the brand
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.
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.
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.
