Cranberry is gorgeous

I got this for work and it will work perfectly except my laptop doesn’t fit into the padded sleeve so I’ll have to settle for it going into the middle with paperwork around it. The color is stunning, the leather is SO soft and the shoulder straps are the perfect length. I see more purchases in my future!

Beautiful But A Little Too Small

It’s a beautiful color (dusty rose - my picture doesn’t do it justice) and the leather is very soft. The handles are the perfect size for me (5’2”). I don’t use it as a backpack or a crossbody. It’s heavier than I expected, but not so heavy that I would return it or that it hurts my shoulder or back. It’s also smaller than I expected. I’ll definitely get the Gemini next (I think the Aquila may be too big). If you want to know the details of their bags to compare them, go to their Instagram account and look at the pinned reel (at the top of their account) called “meet our bags”.

I don’t use a laptop for work so I use the laptop sleeve for storing the cosmetic bag I bought from White Elm.

I highly recommend this company. The bag was packaged really well in a big box that included a dust bag. I was very impressed by the care that went into the packaging to keep its shape and protected during transport.

My only reason for a 4-star rating rather than a 5-star is that it was smaller than I expected. I think the Gemini would have been a better size for my needs (I carry a lot of stuff).

I chose White Elm because it’s suited for my needs, the color options are very pretty, and I wanted vegan leather. It has quite a number of interior and exterior pockets. It has a trolley pass through that can be zipped up and used as a pocket (it also has a magnetic closure - nice added detail). The tassels are pretty. There are 2 tassels, one of which can be removed and used as either a decorative piece on the bag - I use it on one of the metal rings that would normally be used for the included/optional crossbody strap. Plus, it can hold my Simple Modern 24oz bottle.

Totes from Coach, Michael Kors, etc just don’t have enough pockets. And can’t hold my water bottle. I was a backpack purse girl for years, but I wanted to switch back to a tote. This bag (and the Gemini) gives me 3 carrying options: tote, crossbody, or backpack. That was also what drew me to purchase from White Elm. I will absolutely purchase from them again.

Great bag!

I am so excited about this bag, it is perfect for everyday use and very stylish! It holds all that I used to carry in a separate backpack for work plus my personal items. The color is beautiful and the material is amazing! You won’t be disappointed with this bag!

Christmas present

I received the Gemini mini for Christmas. It appears to be great quality and even matches the colors of the university where I work. The only drawback is it doesn’t fit my work laptop :( My personal laptop does fit, though. Still on the hunt for a work bag as this one will be relegated to personal use.

Make sure to check out our full sized Gemini & Aquila bags as they accommodate larger laptops and may fit your work laptop!

3rd Gemini. I’m in love!

This is my 3rd Gemini and 2nd mini, and I absolutely love them. The quality is wonderful, they’re so versatile and they have so much space. The cranberry is such a vibrant color and gives any outfit a pop of color. I have to say that the feel of this one was considerably softer than the other two I’ve gotten, and the straps were also not a ‘stiff,’ so it was a pleasant surprise. If you’re on the fence about getting a bag, go for it! And if you’re eyeing the cranberry one, I’d definitely get it before it sells out. Cheers!

In love with this purse!

I have wanted one of these purses for so long and I'm so glad that I finally decided to purchase one! The purse is very well made, and I love that I can wear it as a backpack or on my shoulder! It's just the right size with the perfect amount of pockets.. Literally, the best purse ever!!

Best purchase ever

I wanted a White Elm bag for about 2 or three years. And I was going to purchase a black. But this year I saw how beautiful the Forest green was and I had to buy it. Great purchase, I feel very organized and everything has a spot.

Love this color

I'm so sad the sand color is being retired, it's my favorite color of these bags. I've already ordered a full size while it's still available. The bag is excellent quality, I love the soft lining. I use the mini as a purse and the full size as a work bag and I love them both. I'm a bigger girl and recommend getting the XXL strap add-on if you're plus sized and you plan to wear it as a backpack otherwise the straps will be too tight on the arms. The clutch bag from the same bundle is also amazing quality. The zippers are smooth and don't stick which I love! Don't mind the scattered toys in the photo, I have a toddler. Speaking of kids, this bag works great if you're a parent who needs to carry around odds and ends for the kiddos. All of the interior pockets are great for holding snacks and sippy cups or any other small items you'd need to carry. I recommend these to everyone :)
