Chanelle the cabout mereator of Nelle is a rebellion to fast fashion, using reclaimed leather and other fabrics to create simple designs to allow you to define your own style.  With a passion for secondhand and vintage items this self taught crafts woman has spent hours, weeks and months perfecting designs and techniques whilst taking inspiration from her heritage, styles of yesterday and traditional craft techniques.
