Product Description:

The chicest mini companion to our hero bag Millais. Mini Millais combines the sleek modern appearance and quiet luxury of our Millais, with new compact dimensions, making it the perfect understated but directional mini bag.

The Mini Millais baguette bag has the same ultra-adjustable shoulder strap as the Millais, allowing it to be worn short and high, or low and crossbody. We love our bags to be as versatile and functional possible, that's why our Mini Millais comfortably fits even the largest phone, key and lipstick, storing your cards in its nifty little internal pocket. The bag fastens with an invisible magnet ensuring you can keep your belongings safe.

Crafted from our smooth grain recycled leather in Moss. Also available in 100% vegan AppleSkin™ leather alternative in Black Onyx.

H12 X W22 X D5 cm

For every bag purchased, we plant a tree. With your help, we've planted one acre of trees (so far) in the Peruvian Amazon.

    Brand Partner Bio

    Founder Genia started off as a political journalist, spending years working in the BBC newsroom.. But one story really got under her skin: coffee cup waste. How could these recyclable objects be wasted — simply because there was no market for the recycled material?

    Determined to act, but unsure of how, Genia did what she does best — she talked to people. She talked to local and international recycling plants, she talked to innovative material manufacturers, she talked to lecturers and craftspeople and designers and sustainability experts. And each meeting led her to the same conclusion — there was so much potential in ‘waste’ that wasn’t being realised. Genia dug deeper, studying Sustainable Value Chains at Cambridge University and discovering the untapped potential of innovative recycled materials rescued from landfill.

    Drawn to handcrafted, quality items made by real artists with generations of experience, her aim was to combine innovation with local skills and heritage. After studying Accessories Design at London College of Fashion, and finding one of the last bag-makers in East London, our first bag launched on Kickstarter.

    A story of collaboration from start to finish, our brand is the result of so many peer conversations about design, development and hundreds of people’s financial pledges. From launching on Kickstarter and then SEEDRS in 2020, we’ve received a lot of customer feedback along the way and wouldn’t be where we are today without our incredible community. We are now an all-female team based a stone's throw away from Victoria Park in East London, and take enormous pride in naming every bag we make after our favourite places around the area. Everyone involved has the same intention: to help our brand have a real, measurable impact on the fashion industry by proving that waste can become beautiful, inside and out.
