Lilla Lane Basangkasa Store
If you are looking for a bag, then this is a must-visit shop. They have bags in different styles and different occasions. For elegant nights out, or for any day wear. Lilla Lane has a lot to offer when it comes to bags. Their bags are sturdy and yet light of weight. The designs are unique and beautiful. What I also like about Lilla Lane is that they give a cotton (duster) bag when buying a product. Plastic is avoided as much as possible and waste is minimized by using their own reclaimed leather. What is that you might ask? Well, they don’t throw away their cutoff leather. They make use of the scraps and don’t throw away anything. More on that at Sustainability at Lilla Lane.
