LED fiber-optic textiles are a brand new development; one of the amazing new materials that helped to inspire the birth of Fabrikk. Light travels through the light emitting fiber optic threads woven into the material creating an amazing light-up effect. The LED bulb is switched on when the bag is open; illuminating the threads and creating a subtle glow to help you find your things in the dark.
3 X AAA batteries in the VELA’s small concealed battery pack will keep it powered for up to 4-6 months. And the colour of the illumination can be changed to suit your style with the LED colour attachments available from our online store. Our unique illuminating materials are ethically sourced from a reputable and certified supplier in Italy.
Please see the product and instruction video's for the VELA handbag below.

We work with new cork-based materials made from thin shavings of bark, sustainably cultivated from cork oak trees in Portugal. Our luxury cork 'leather' comes from reputable and certified suppliers in Portugal and Italy. Cork 'leather' is cruelty-free, suitable for vegans, long-lasting, durable and versatile. Cork materials are possible in endless colours and styles from soft touch to textured. It’s also easy to clean and scratch-resistant, and pre-treated with the latest technology in waterproofing; LiquiProof™, to give our products the very best protection from liquids and oils.
