Ellington Bags

Fifty Sense Seal of Approval We have found a company that understands although we are older; we still like to be fashionable, and practical. Ellington believes in quality bags for everyday, evening, and travel.

Charlie Backpack Purse

The Charlie backpack purse is a stylish Vintage Italian Leather over-the-shoulder everyday purse that converts to a backpack with a simple tug on the straps- perfect for travel! The Italian leather is gorgeous, with a beautiful broken-in look, and surprisingly lightweight. The ECO leather shoulder/backpack straps are sturdy and embellished with antique brass hardware.

There is lots of organization in the purse including a main compartment and the Ellington signature interior organizer, which has a medium size pocket with 2 smaller pockets inside of that one. On the opposite side of the main compartment there is a medium size zipper pocket and a key clip. On the backside of the bag there is yet another zipper pocket. The main compartment has a magnetic closure so it is never hanging wide open, keeping all your belongings safely tucked inside.

Whether you are looking for a classy everyday purse, a functional travel bag, or both, this is a gorgeous bag that can do it all!

Eva Wristlet

The Eva is a perfect as a wallet or an on-the-go wristlet. It was perfect for travel. I used it as a wallet during the day and pulled it from the purse to use on its own as I headed out to dinner.

The pockets and card slots make it a perfect wallet organizing all your travel necessities. It is just large enough to through in a couple amenities, such as lip gloss and keys, if it flying solo. The zippered main compartment has 2 slip pockets and a zip pocket separating bills from other goodies. There is another exterior zip pocket perfect for carrying change, hair pins, safety pins, etc. The three exterior card slots are covered by a flap with snap closure, keeping your id, credit cards, or other important cards snuggly in place.

The Eva Wristlet is a perfect compliment to the Charlie Backpack Purse for an everyday wallet or travel amenity!


We tested this bag and it quickly became the "use everyday" bag. The hobo has a classic style and is slouchy, soft and chic. Large enough for travel, 14" high, 18" wide, and the strap has a generous 10" drop on the comfortable strap.

Thanks to the unstructured design and roomy interior, this beautiful handbag can carry a lot without looking bulky or overloaded. The buttery-soft full-grain leather body with vegetable-tanned Italian leather strap and chunky nickel hardware and the decorative details with contrast-color leather trim wraps comfortably around the body.

The top zipper closure keeps the precious items safe. Although the bag is large, the interior includes two large slip pockets, a leather-framed zipper pocket, and a key clip for those smaller items.
