Introducing Linked Thela

The Linked Thela Deconstructed

Our statement ring detail, symbolizing eternity, adorns the timeless, inverted handle silhouette of the original Thela, delicately balanced between two playful knots. Charmingly intimate, the statement contrast interior adds an element of surprise to the ageless classic, offsetting the unreserved self-assurance of the metallic chain strap.

Designed for versatility, the three different straps can be worn in a multitude of ways for a perpetually fresh look. Wear the Linked Thela toting on your arm, over the shoulder with any of the straps, or remove the chain altogether to reveal the buttery soft leather for a sleek, stripped back look.
