When Cleobella handbags come up, I brace myself for something very hippie-esque. So, today, I was a bit surprised when I came across a recent Cleobella design.

To be honest, at first glance, I thought this bag had some kind of metallic element going on. Upon further investigation, I realized that while there is some kind of weaving going on, there is absolutely no metallic involved. Perhaps I glanced at the bag too quickly or perhaps I have metallic on the brain, so I am not exactly sure why I thought I saw metallic. Either way, there is something about this bag that screams out, “carry me”.


No, the Cleobella Brixie Weave Bag isn’t something you’d want to grab for a night out on the town, but I’d definitely recommend it for day-to-day activities or even as a weekend away tote. The wrinkled leather has woven ikat banding along the front and back of the bag. Ikat detailing is something we’ve become accustom to seeing on Cleobella bags; it’s kind of expected. The double rolled handles (9″ drop) look sturdy but not so bulky that they would dig into your arm or shoulder too much. In case you opt to use this in a manner that a shoulder strap (24″ drop) is needed, don’t worry, there is one available. Buy through Shopbop for $465.
