THE IDEA & THE FOUNDER
Hi! My name is Henny Lena and I am the founder of ONDEDESIGNS.
As a frequent traveller, I was tired of balancing my bag on my suitcase. So, I decided to equip all travel bags with a belt that not only safely secures them to suitcases but also closes tote bags: BYE BYE BAG BALANCING and BONJOUR ONDE BAG BELT!
After years of ideation and product development - all mixed with a global pandemic - you can finally order your ONDE Bag Belt.
All orders before September 30th 2021 will enjoy FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING.
PRODUCT TEST REVIEWS

Many friends and people from the fashion industry I know are obsessed with taking care of their bags, especially in such a chaotic and dirty environment like airports. For me it's the accessory I didn't know I needed and now I can't stay without.
I am already fully convinced!! The train station (also a bit icky) was a nightmare but my bag was safely secured to my suitcase...never want to travel without it again.
THE PRODUCT DETAILS
How to use the ONDE Bag Belt
The ONDE Bag Belt is a true style chamaeleon. You can choose from four elegant colours: POWER RED, CLASSIC BLACK, HAZELNUT BROWN and SILKY BEIGE
By the way: All belt colours can be found in luxury cars. Scroll down to learn more about the upcycling aspect of the ONDE Bag Belt.
THE UPCYCLING ASPECT
The ONDE Bag Belt is made of unused leather from the luxury car and sports car production. The automotive industry needs large canvases of leather for the car interior with zero mistakes on the leather. Every year, tiny spots lead to the exclusion of ~50% of leather in the car production.
By cutting around the flaws, the ONDE Bag Belt introduces this leather into a new lifecycle and thereby increases the sustainability of car production.
All product parts are sourced in the Europe.
THE METAL PARTS
All metal parts have been designed by me, Henny Lena and are sourced in Italy. The front buckle is inspired by an airplane buckle to ensure an easy but safe opening/closing mechanism. The design of the fasteners complements the timeless design of the statement piece of the ONDE Bag Belt: The front buckle.
