Looking for your next must-have bag? Let us introduce you to Ela Handbags. The brainchild of co-founders (and husband and wife duo) Ela Kowalewska and Martin Aldorsson, these bags capture the essence of humble luxury. After stints in PR at Hermès in Toronto, Burberry in London, and a chance encounter with Jimmy Choo, it was clear that Ela was destined for a career in accessory design. Together, the Canadian-based duo leaves no detail untouched. Each bag is crafted in Spain using the finest Italian materials while infusing every detail with the highest level of craftsmanship.
Available in their signature envelope clutch, the M.I.L.C.K (an acronym for every women’s handbag essentials: money, identification, lipstick, cell, keys), and in the cross body CHIBI Ladybag, every style has a story behind it and is designed to not upstage the wearer.
Watch our exclusive video as we chat with the line’s co-founders about building their brand and the exclusive bag that they designed just for Holts.
