We are ellyla (el-lyla). Crafting affordable, high quality cruelty free & eco -friendly bags using natural plant fibres.
Our bags are designed in the UK, cultivated from crops in Bangladesh & ethically handcrafted by artisans in India.
Pioneering sustainable, ethical and trend driven bags, kind to people whilst protecting our planet.
We are Ian & Sarika.
Passionate about people and the planet, we have developed a range of high-quality, fashion focused, ethically made affordable bags that people can love, look after, and want to keep using for longer periods.
Our bags are handmade in India by skilled artisans who have developed their talent through years of cultural traditions passed down by generations. By giving these artisans a platform to perform we contribute towards their well being by ensuring they are paid well and treated fairly.
We use natural and sustainable fabrics which include jute, raffia,vegan PU, bamboo, mango wood, hemp and organic cotton which are all sourced locally using sustainable farming methods. Our bags are 100% vegan, recyclable and biodegradable and we use no plastic packaging.
Fashion isn’t going anywhere. Millennia of human history tells us that as we move towards a sustainable, low carbon future, people are still going to be dressing to impress. But if we are going to reach that future, the industry is going to have to fundamentally change for the better.
