- ABOUT US
Beautifully crafted from the finest Italian Leather the Thela mini is a slightly smaller but a lot lighter and yet a more versatile version of the Thela Medium. Its slouchy trapeze shape, inverted handles, and soft leather accentuate the fine detail of the bag.
It is different to the Thela Medium and Thela Large families, in that the shoulder strap can be adjusted in length using the gold studs and the strap can be removed entirely. It is also different as the dog clips clip to the outside of the bag rather than meet at the centre, making it more comfortable to wear cross body and on the go.
Carry it by its handles, use the long strap when on the go or attach the long straps to the front fastening for a whole new look. The Mini size of Thela takes you from day to night.
