Welcome to DeMellier, the new Milli Millu
Letter from Mireia Llusia-Lindh
For those of you who are new, I would like to personally welcome you to DeMellier, you can find out more about us HERE.
For those of you who have been with us since we launched as Milli Millu 7 years ago, first, I want to send you a big thank you, It’s been the most wonderful journey and something we couldn’t have done without you.
As many of you know, last year we were very fortunate to win the Walpole Brands of Tomorrow award and started growing more abroad. We realised that the name we had launched with didn’t resonate as well internationally and was more and more disconnected from the products we were offering. We felt we needed a name that better reflected who we are. Last year while at my parents’ home I found an old box which revealed my grandmother’s family tree. As I looked through I realised that her stories I had listened to so closely as a child were true, she was a descendent of knights, lords and marquesses whose family can be traced back for more than 500 years to the South of Spain, not far from where our bags are made today. Everything fell into place and DeMellier was born. De is a tribute to my family’s heritage, while Mellier comes from my name of French descent, symbolising the mix of old and new, of heritage and modernity.
After months of hard work, I am very excited to reveal to you our new name, our new packaging, and our new website, which has been crafted with all our love and we hope you enjoy visiting!
Nothing changes in relation to our products, we will continue to use our logo and work with the same factories and suppliers we have been working to date with the uttermost commitment to detail and quality. Our charity initiative A Bag, A Life through which we have so far funded over 25,000 vaccines for orphans in need will continue and will always be core to our DNA.
I welcome you to DeMellier, and I hope you will continue to join us on this journey of creativity, championing women and giving back.
