Ellen Vicius Adds Luxe to Its Handbag and Wallet Collection

If you are not yet familiar with Ellen Vicius, it’s time to check out the luxe line of soft leather handbags and wallets.

We love the Ally Ophidia Edition wallet, a supple green leather handcrafted rectangular wallet that is large enough to hold all of your credit cards, change and cash. There is a gold label bearing the Ellen Vicius name engraved on the front. Slide open the gold zipper to reveal extra sleeves to hold credit cards, a zip pocket for change, a full pocket for cash or notes and an entire partition devoted to holding more credit cards or business cards.

The Ellen Vicius brand is well known for its attention to detail and perfection. Based in Portugal, each piece is handcrafted and considered a work of art. We love that each exclusive piece is uniquely designed so there are no two pieces that are the same. Because they are designed by experienced artisans, each is intricately (and manually) designed, stitched and manufactured.

The first collection of the Ellen Vicius brand was named Colors for its meaning of “ellen” - light and glow. This line offered timeless designs that are brought to a modern life.The line was created by businessman João Ribeiro and his wife Ellen, who has served as a source of inspiration for all models.

When it comes to cleaning and maintaining the eco-friendly piece, be sure to protect the leather product from heat and water. It’s also important to avoid contact with materials that can absorb the color. TheAlly Ophidia Edition wallet arrived in a gold satin bag and box for added protection. To keep the leather from looking like new, when not using, store it in its original bag to protect it from the elements.


Each piece also comes with a warranty certificate offering a lifetime guarantee against any manufacturing defects through proper use. For more information, visit
