The Elena is a classic leather tote bag with a striking pattern upgrade. Handwoven in Italy from premium Vachetta leather, this woven bag features a 100% cotton lining, magnetic top closure and two zippered interior pockets to keep belongings safe and sound.
A Vachetta leather handbag is the ultimate investment piece; it's the only kind of leather that naturally darkens with use to develop a deep honey "patina," becoming more valuable over time.

FRANCESCO & ELENA FILOMENI - Sant’Elpidio a Mare, Marche
Handwoven leather purses, shoes and even furniture have been coming out of the Filomeni family's workshop in Italy's Le Marche region since 1982, when part-owner Francesco Filomeni’s parents first founded the company. Meticulously hand woven from 150-200 meters of leather string, each satchel has a one-of-a-kind beauty that literally stops admirers on the street, which is a true testament to the skill, patience and quality with which the Filomeni's bags are made.
I have been looking for a large, great quality, beautiful leather handbag for my daughter for quite some time. I have bought and returned several. Milaner did not disappoint! The Elena is a beautiful bag and the finest quality workmanship. Service is excellent! I definitely recommend Milaner products.
Elena Bag is Beautiful!
The team at Milaner was so attentive and helpful. They even honored a request I had made for a specific gift that they were giving to honor the Holidays. . Very kind, very generous, and both items were beautifully made. Thank you Milaner!
I LOVE MY NEW HANDBAG!
all good with purchase and delivery, quality is great - I am so happy that I have a bag that is not mainstream and LOVE the idea that a lovely small business has got my cash rather than a ‘label’ - also happy that my bag won’t appear on everyone’s shoulder.
Love the bag, and it came so quickly!
My Elena handbag arrived incredibly promptly. The bag is beautiful, very well made. It feels fantastic as the leather is so supple. It holds everything (and more) that I need. I am very very pleased with my purchase.
I received the bag much faster than expected, given it was made on demand. Lovely craft, very well done and it looks beautiful really. I am thinking about getting one in another colour as well…
The use of the word “WOW” to describe this magnificent bag, simply doesn’t come close.
Words defy any ability to describe this magnificent bag. The attention to detail, the linen lining, the packaging … the list goes on. This is the consummate bag that knows no rival.
Live the bag
Love the bag!! It was perfect to carry Christmas presents on an airplane. It is a Gorgeous Bag!! I even looked for it this summer in Italy and didn’t find anything close to it.
Great communication, fast shipping
I was pleasantly surprised by how fast the bag arrived. This was to be a Christmas gift so I appreciated the emails along the way updating me on the progress. The goods came well packaged. Overall, this felt like a very bespoke transaction.
