The All Encompassing Handbag by Raela is a truly unique statement piece from their launch collection. The metal contrasts subtly with the crochet and wooden accents. Round handles allows you to wear on your arm or hold the handle with ease. Designed with their signature branded hardware.
Having worked within different areas of fashion for many years, both respectively and together, co-founders Rae Pooley and Nataschia Holland wanted to create a brand that would challenge trends and the fast paced norms of the industry — designing special pieces to be treasured; heirlooms to be handed down.
Raela adopt elements of traditional Indian craft across the entire collection. These techniques include embroidery, handbeading, crocheting and metalsmithing — the process is slow and thorough. The handcrafted nature means that each handbag has unique characteristics and will differ slightly in appearance. It is their hope that Raela products contribute to the preservation of skills that have been passed down through generations.
