Lovely clutch bag

Just the right size. Beautiful leather and great colour. Might have to buy another one 😄

So beautiful

Love it. Suits our house perfectly. I had a basket of clothes to take to the op shop and ended up using them to stuff it! I think that gave it some good weight as well. Had a slight smell but disappeared only after 2-3 days. Love love love.

The most beautifully crafted bag I have ever owned

I don’t normally review purchases because it’s just not what I do, but since the Tote Backpack is just so beautiful I wanted to give Lost Little One a great recommendation. The leather, the quality of the inside lining and the design is gorgeous. I am going to get many, many years of use out of my bag and I know it’s just going to become even more beautiful as it wears. I love it! Thank you Lost Little One!

Love love love my new addition. It’s the perfect size for everyday use and looks so beautiful.
I have my Mums vintage leather bag big sister of the Abbey sling which is a little larger, Abbey is my alternative bag if I need something smaller.
Thank you for creating it.🫶🏼

Great bag

I love this bag ~ unfortunately it has a crease in it from postage but I’m hoping this will disappear as it softens

Slouch?! This bag is NO slouch!

An absolute beauty. Skilfully crafted and deliciously soft. I’m not worried by the smell that everyone seemed to comment about. Love it wholeheartedly. My only suggestion? Perhaps the website could have colour patches alongside the pictures? This would help with the agony of picking which colour to choose! I’m still not sure I picked correctly, but I guess that means I’ll have to have two!! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Thank you so much for your lovely review! It means a lot to me to hear such kind words from happy customers.

My favourite space

I stumbled upon the “Lost Little One” instagram page one day and noticed these beautiful handmade ottomans. I also noticed that orders are only open at specific times of the year. I love this ethos. I knew that I was buying something handmade just for me and that was special. The design and craftsmanship is just exquisite. Dominique is a delight to buy from. My ottoman now has pride of place in my favourite space in my home. Dad wants one also. I can’t wait for orders to open again so I can buy him one and maybe another one for me……

Thank you so much for your kind words Nathalie. Love seeing our ottoman in beautiful corners of your home!

Luv it!!

My Millo in vintage brown arrived today. It is perfect, great size and fits alot more than expected. The colour is gorgeous and the leather is beautiful and soft. Didn't realise it had zip compartments at the front and back with a small compartment inside as well. Bonus! This is my 2nd purchase from LLO'S with more to come I'm sure. Thank you for making such great quality bags 😍

Thank you for such a lovely review Arlene, I am so happy that you love your new bag!

Dark brown Stephen Slouch - my dream bag

This bag is beautiful, classic and practical - the perfect bag for my every day.
I spent nearly a whole year contemplating this purchase and bought a cheaper bag in the meantime - of course the straps broke on that one, and I’d still been dreaming of this bag so I gave in and purchased it!
And I am so glad I did - was tossing between the vintage brown and dark brown, but asked Dom via Instagram for help with the choice of colour - and we came up with dark brown. So so happy with the colour, and she’s been very helpful and lovely to speak to.
The interior is very nice quality with a great zip pocket and phone pocket which I need. It’s a big bag which is exactly what I wanted, and it looks exactly like the images online.
The smell of the bag is fine to me and not an issue at all. It comes with a card to explain that the smell will wear away after use.
I am so happy with my purchase! Thanks Dom xxx

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I am sooo happy you love your new bag. It has been an absolute pleasure chatting with you xx

Stylish x Spacious

As a frequent traveller who values both style and organisation, I recently discovered the Nate Toiletries Bag, and it really is the PERFECT toiletries bag. As someone who prefers to travel light, this bag strikes the perfect balance between being spacious enough to hold my essential toiletries and being compact enough to fit comfortably into my luggage.

Moga Tote
Sleek, Sexy and Spacious!

I am in love with my Moga Tote - I haven't put it down since I got it. I was particularly drawn to the Moga Tote because it neatly fits my laptop but still has a sleek and compact design. The bag also features multiple compartments, including dedicated pockets for smaller items, so everything stays organised and easily accessible.

Exceeded all Expectations

I recently got the Gemma Crossbody Bag, and I must say it has exceeded all my expectations. The bag's compact size and sleek design make it ideal for those like myself who prefer a minimalist aesthetic.
Durability is an important factor when it comes to leather bags, and the Gemma Crossbody Bag doesn't disappoint. I appreciate the quality craftsmanship that has gone into creating this product. Would highly recommend this bag to anyone needing a small bag for your everyday essentials - phone, keys and wallet. It is perfect!

Coco Backpack

Coco backpack

this is the 3rd Little Lost One bag that I have purchased. I love this bag. It is the perfect size for weekend walk with my dog. I love to carry an A5 sketchbook (this bag will fit and A4 book), pens, watercolour kit, my dogs water bottle and snacks and there is still room for a scarf, I-pad, sunglasses etc. The leather is divine and I know from my other 2 bags that given a month that leather will soften beautifully

Second Abby sling

I love this bag! I also have it in tan. I was surprised how lush the black leather is. It’s already starting to soften and mould. It’s the perfect size for everyday essentials and is not heavy to wear. This is my third bag from Lost Little One and cannot recommend the quality highly enough! Dominique is lovely and the bag arrived quickly

Practical and beautifully made

I’m so happy with this purchase. I bought it as a gift for my Mother and she absolutely loves it. Perfect for travelling, sleek and able to store laptop, notebook and cords. I’ll be getting another one for myself for sure!

The bag smells like chemicals

The bags nice, however it smells like chemicals and I won’t use it as I’m sensitive to smells. It’s very over powering

Hi Lenny,

Yes, we do talk about how the bags can arrive with a smell, especially they ones that are purchased via pre-sale and are fresh from our artisans in Morocco (as they haven't had any time to air out here in Australia before they're packaged directly to our customers). But let me assure you that once the bag has been used the leather will soften and the odour will be released. It only takes about 2 weeks of use for the smell to diminish completely. Leaving behind a beautifully supple veg-tanned leather bag with a beautiful patina.

The bag is lovely, a little smaller than what I was expecting however great size. And not as soft as I would have thought.
I don’t like the smell of the bag, it’s a very strong chemical smell.
Other than that it looks lovely, packaged in a lovely bag and the detail inside is really nice

Hi Lenny,

Thank you so much for your purchase and your review. Our leather bags soften and change as you use them, the leather becomes more supple with every use and this helps to release and diminish the veg-tanned leather smell that is present when the bag first arrives. In about two weeks you'll notice the smell of your bag should be almost neutral and a patina will be forming. To speed up this process we recommend working in your hands, don't be scared to play with the leather, it all adds to the end beauty.

In our opinion our bags look best when they've been worn for a few months, and even better after a few years. Our mission is to create designs that get better with age. We'd love to hear from you again once you've worn your leather in.

xx LLO

Beautiful backpack

This is the best backpack I’ve bought. The tan leather is soft and getting softer with every use. The colour is changing to a unique patterns showing through. It fits so much but is still so light on your back. I can fit my phone, wallet, kindle, keys, sunglasses, plus more. Such a great purchase that will last forever!

Cute but practical goodness

Oh what a sweet little cross body bag. As soon as I opened the package I knew I would get a lot of use out of this beautifully made bit of cuteness. It fits everything you need for a day or night out, and looks great slung over a casual or smart outfit. Love this bag

I Would Have Liked to Have Known

Two things: Point 1: The post-curing smell of the bag-being vegetable tanned [I found this-when I went to return it bcoz of this odour- but found you cannot return a pre-order].. I left my bag outside hanging on my clothes rack, but not getting rained on. The smell dissipated
after a full week or slightly more.

Point 2: The underside material of the shoulder strap: it's a copy grosgrain style of material- but polyester I am sure. I do not like it. Why do that>..? Why not just double side the leather-it seems nice and thin and interfacing [suitable to the functional needs] could have been inserted.

I am getting used to it-but quite frankly- it looks ugly, and to me spoils the aesthetic of this cute bag, and sure- it makes it ‘lighter’ in weight…But mere grams and Id prefer the visuals of a regular full leather strap.

Hi Su-Lee,

Thank you so much for your order and feedback.

Glad to hear the smell of your bag dissipated after a week of airing. We do talk about the smell of veg-tanned leather in depth on our website, as it's something we want our new customers to be aware of. This earthy odour is a well known characteristic of naturally cured leather. We recommend both airing and simply using your bag ~ when the leather is used, it softens and the smell is released. After a couple of weeks of using the smell will be gone completely.

We choose to reinforce all of our adjustable straps with nylon as this ensures that the straps are durable and pass the test of time. We found that using only leather straps meant they were susceptible to wear and tear and eventually needed repairs. We try and show both top and underside of the straps in the images on the product page on our website.

I hope this clarify's why we've chosen to design the bags this way.

Regards, Dom

Love my new black bag

It’s a beautiful quality that I’m sure will get even better with age. I’ve already had several compliments.

Love the quality of my new little pouch, the colour and size are perfect!


I bought the black Coco backpack. Happy wth it and contrary to one review, the main opening does have dual zips to open from both left or right. The specified sizing does not allow for the side gussets so that the width of the packback is more accurately 30cm. I was concerned that a 20cm width would be too small. I recommend this bag.
