Craftsmanship - Skins

meli melo strives to find the highest quality Italian leathers and luxury skins to create instantly recognisable bags.



Each season the meli melo design team research and discover exciting new skins and textured leathers to bring their handbag designs to life.
The finest Italian leather is used to create our iconic Thela. The leather's buttery softness lends itself beautifully to the unstructured design of the tote bag.
Often we create bespoke meli melo colours and have leathers dyed by the tannery.  


 Ponyskin is one of meli melo's most loved skins.
 Used season after season across the collection you may see it in trim details or as a complete handbag.
 There is a fun and contemporary feel to it.
One of our all time favourites is the Limited Edition Cheetah Clutch, a perfect combination of cheetah print and textured pony skin.


A new addition to the collection this season is the pop art inspired Silver Snake Splatter. A metallic snake skin that has been splattered with paint by an Italian artist.
Each piece is completely unique and extremely cool. 
The Rubber Snake Thela is made from python and has been specially treated to create a rubberised effect.
We love the feel and look of this exotic texture. 

Next season sees fluffy shearling and more abstract textured leathers, watch this space carefully!
