Before the Bag

2005

The Jelly is Born

ROSE-SCENTED

All of our accessories are made of pure rose-scented jelly material in a variety of vivid hues.

RECYCLABLE

The PVC jelly we use is 100% recyclable. This means each style can be reused to create a new one.

VEGAN

Our jelly is also vegan and cruelty-free. No animals are harmed in the making of our products.
