Bellroy is an Australian accessories brand renowned for making functional products from eco-friendly materials. The brand was created 10 years ago around a dining room table in Bells Beach, Victoria with the launch of the now infamous Bellroy wallet. They were the brand that made one of the first ultra slim but functional designed wallets and it catapulted them to where they are today. Always intended to be a bag brand, Bellroy launched its sleek collection of handbags, backpacks and totes in 2017.
Bellroy stands out from the crowd with its commitment to only use environmentally sustainable materials including eco tanned leathers, recycled fabrics and plant-based materials. Everything that goes into a Bellroy piece is selected for its ability to last, age gracefully and work properly. With a gold star rating from the Leather Working Group (the largest industry body for environmental stewardship in the leather supply chain), Bellroy is recognised for its commitment to using superior quality leather that respects water usage, electricity, low pollution, labour rights and other criteria. Using eco-tanned leather means you actually get a better, more durable product that also better supports the environment.
In the Bellroy bags and pouches, 100% recycled polyester and nylon are used to reduce their impact on the environment. The recycled polyester is incredibly made from 100% recycled plastic bottles, whilst the nylon is made from 100% recycled industrial nylon offcuts. Using plant-based materials also means that Bellroy is able to offer strong eco-friendly alternatives to consumers instead of petroleum-based products.
As members of the B Corp movement, Bellroy continues to be a leader in the eco-friendly designer space. This group of certified companies use the power of their business to help make a positive impact on social and environmental problems.
