Craftsmanship: From sketch to bag


At meli melo it takes 9 months to bring a handbag design to life. The secret behind the iconic Thela handbag?
Lots of hard work by meli melo's founder and creative director Melissa Del Bono and her team.

Each season Melissa meticulously designs and refines the collection, ensuring it is of the highest quality and instantly recognisable.
Melissa draws her inspiration from travel experiences and cultural happenings.
Once a design has been visualised from initial sketch to a computer rendered version it is sent to the European manufacturer where a first sample is made, beautifully crafted from  the finest Italian leathers. The design is revisited until both designer and manufacturer are completely satisfied, and a meli melo handbag is created.
