Tory Burch Chooses Modern Meadow to Power their Revolutionary Ella Bio Bag

In a bold new model for bioinnovation, the best-selling handbag gets a modern update.

Originally launched in 2008, the Ella line of luxury handbags has become a Tory Burch classic. In 2023, the iconic brand partnered with Modern Meadow to launch a new version using Bio-Tex™—our durable, luxurious, fade-resistant leather alternative.

The outer shell of each Ella Bio bag is engineered with non-GMO plant protein grown in North America and contains 64% USDA-certified bio-based content.
