Crossbody bag, Ella in black - About the name
To me, this crossbody bag gives 'beautiful' a new meaning, completely like the village Ella did.
Ella is located 1041 meters above sea level in the central part of the Sri Lankan Highlands.
Previously, Ella was just a small spot, but in recent years the village has grown enormously in popularity - with that said, there are only 3-4 streets where there are actually buildings. Most of all cafes and guesthouses, aimed at the many visitors.
The area around Ella
The surrounding countryside is stunning! It offers tea farms, waterfalls, mountains, beautiful scenery and old train tracks.
Around Ella we also got to bathe in waterfalls, and went for walks with unforgettable views. Among other things, we went up on Ella Rock. As the name suggests, it is a giant rock one can climb. And I'm not saying we got lost on the way up there and got to visit a couple of local cabins on the way - I'm just saying we might have spent a few extra hours on the trip! But the view that awaited us was worth it all. We could see beyond the mountains, small villages in the valleys and the wild nature.
From Ella we also went to tea factories and learned how the tea we drink at home is made.
Sri Lanka's most famous bridge
Of course we also visited the city's beautiful Nine Arch Bridge. The bridge was built in the late 19th century during British colonial times - but not by the British. It is said that they got help from a local who offered to build the bridge both better and cheaper than they themselves could. Although the British accepted the offer, they were obviously doubtful about the quality, so when the first train had to cross the bridge, the local 'engineer' was ordered to lie under it. Fortunately, he had built a solid bridge that still looks great to this day!
The local man is said to have received the excess budget - but now I do not quite know if I believe in it.
And now we'm talking about trains; Ella is also the terminus of the train route, which is said to be one of the most beautiful in the whole world. Of course we were on the train to Ella, and we can only confirm that.
In Ella we also got a cold beer every night, more the heavy eyelids could not cope.
It was really a great experience, which is also why this beautiful crossover bag and clutch is named after the city,
Hold up a really, really nice place - we loved being there.
This crossover bag has detachable straps and can therefore be used as a shoulder bag, crossbody bag or as a clutch.
The bag is also available in brown right here.
