    HERITAGE

     

    The story of Thela began many years ago on the volcanic island of Lipari where women would carry traditional wicker baskets. The B.B. bag was born in 2005, the label's first creation, interpreting a wicker basket shape in a smooth leather

     

    Our hero Thela tote, an evolution of the B.B. Bag, is widely recognised for its design. Leading in originality, the handbag can be worn in five different ways, encouraging self-expression.

    Born in 1200 B.C.

    The story of meli melo began on the volcanic island of Lipari with the traditional Sicilian wicker basket, the label’s core inspiration.

    born in 2005

    meli melo’s first creation, the B.B. bag, interpreted the wicker basket’s inverted handles, establishing them as the defining feature of its luxuriously minimalist design.

    born in 2012

    In 2012, the B.B. bag evolved into the Thela bag, named after the great grandmother of the husband of meli melo founder, Melissa Del Bono

    born in 2018

    Born six years after the launch of our well-loved classic, the new Linked Thela, featuring a statement contrast interior, is the ideal collector’s piece, drawing together the different elements which have become an intrinsic part of the meli melo DNA.
