We first spotted Kate with the small brown bag on the 7th of May 2021. She was in London for a series of engagements to mark the publication of her new book, Hold Still (pictured below).
Later in the year, we saw Kate carry the bag for a second time, to visit BAFTA HQ in London. The Duchess delivered a keynote speech for the Forward Trust (pictured below).
About the DeMellier Nano Montreal Bag:
The small brown bag features a sleek tubular top handle and two oversized gold bars on the closure. It comes with a removable/adjustable cross-body strap, which Kate has removed.
The exterior of the bag is made using soft, smooth cowhide leather. The interior is lined with luxurious black cotton. The small bag fits most regular-sized phones and essentials, like keys and a coin purse.
The chic bag comes in eight different colours. Kate carries the ‘deep toffee‘ style, a delicious brown shade (shown above). She added ‘navy smooth‘ to her collection recently. Here’s a look at the Montreal Nano in black:

A slow, sustainable and charitable choice:
Kate seems to have moved away from fast fashion in recent years, opting for sustainable choices instead. DeMellier’s luxury bags are handcrafted using sustainably sourced materials. DeMellier try and avoid waste at every step of their manufacturing process, even leftover materials are given to local apprentice schools.
DeMellier also offer free repairs to ensure your handbag lasts a lifetime.
I think it’s wonderful that DeMellier use a percentage of their profits to fund vaccines and treatments for children. The company works with the international children’s charity SOS Children’s Villages. Interesting fact: Kate has had three public engagements with this charity to date. I wonder if somebody from SOS connected Kate with DeMellier.
To date, DeMellier have funded over 260,000 vaccines and treatments in countries like Somalia, where 1 in 6 children will not live to see their sixth birthday.
