About


Vel-Oh - Bags Inspired By Cycling

We are a London based husband and wife team of urban cyclists that design and make bags which have been inspired by our daily commute to work. Our bags are crafted from British Millerain waxed cotton and genuine leather. We believe you can be stylish and practical at the same time.

Created by us to be worn by you.

Rewards

All Vel-Oh rewards are detailed below.

Branded Tote Bag 

For any pledge of £10 we will send you a Vel-Oh tote bag as a thank you.

Kickstarter Exclusive Tote Bag

Created exclusively for Kickstarter pledges, this handmade tote bears our signature Vel-Oh style made with British millerain waxed cotton and genuine leather handles. All yours for a pledge of £25 or more.

Nip Out bag

Support our campaign by purchasing one of our best selling bags at a discounted price of £45. This roll top waxed cotton bag is our modern twist of the classic musette. It can hold an 11 inch laptop, has an internal pocket for your wallet and keys and fully adjustable shoulder strap.

Please let us know your colour preferences. Retail value £65

Pedlas Canvas

40 x 60 cm canvas. This is a print of the original oil painting made exclusively for Pedlas. We have the honour of offering the prints exclusively at the moment as the collection hasn't launched yet. Be the first one to get one and make a beautiful statement in your home or a great gift for a fellow cycling fanatic.

Duffle Bag

This Waxed cotton duffle bag has a whopping capacity of 25 litres making it perfect to hold you gym kit or grab your shopping on the way home from work. 

Special features include:

  • Internal storm cover and drawstring which will protect your contents from our unpredictable British weather.
  • Two outer pockets large enough to hold your keys, wallet, phone and even your toolkit.
  • Flushed heavy duty webbing allows you to loop your lock on the outside of the bag.
  • Back zip allowing quick and easy access.
  • Adjustable cotton webbing straps enable you to wear this bag comfortably either on your shoulders or across the body.

Grab it for a pledge of just £65 (RRP £95)!

 

 

Day Bag

This is a larger version of our Nip-Out bag! Practical for wearing whilst cycling or just as a smart day bag.

Special features include:

  • Padded pocket that holds a 13 inch laptop.
  • Zip pouch for your keys, phone and wallet.
  • Roll top and front straps let you adjust the amount you hold and you can loop your lock and light through them.
  • Adjustable cotton strap with interchangeable third leg so no matter how you wear it, it will never swing down. Grab it for a pledge of £85 (RRP £125).

 

 

Backpack

We have been asked about a backpack, so here it is! Using the British Millerain waxed cotton and leather as usual, this back pack is sleek and sophisticated. 

Special features include:

  • Two contrasting front pouches are great and easy to access without taking off your bag.
  • Padded adjustable straps give you the comfort you need and the leather carry handles offer a secondary carrying option. 
  • 15inch laptop sleeve 
  • Zip closer at the top of the bag. 
  • Sneakily hidden strip of webbing to loop your lock on.

The flop top style means that this won't look out of place half empty. Grab it at a pledge of £110 (RRP £155 )

 

The Worker Bag

This is a new and improved commuter bag with an increased capacity of 30 litres. 

Special features include:

  • Wipe clean full leather front pocket with easy side zip access.
  • The popper closures on top sides make this bag neater roll down.
  • Three in one bag - Backpack, tote and carry bag.
  • Additional 2 side pockets which can fit a large bottle of water or wine bottle.
  • Protective internal pocket that can fit a 15 inch laptop.

Grab it for a pledge of £135 (RRP £195).

Who's talking about us

Testimonials

About us

Well where do we start....

Ok we're married and love cycling! We started Vel-Oh not so long ago and we have showcased at Spin Ldn, Berlin Farradschau and Eroica Britannia. We are passionate about how and what we design. With Greta's background in art & design and mine in fashion buying and retailing, together we have over a decade of experience. We create beautiful products to be worn on and off the bike and we need your support to take Vel-Oh to the next level. Thank you in advance.

 

Risks and challenges

We've spent most of the last year working with our partners to limit as many risks as possible, yet we know there will still be hurdles along the way. We will always be transparent with our community about challenges, including these:

Ship date: We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates, but there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned.

Product changes: As we refine the range based on additional community feedback and more product testing, slight changes may be made. We'll only make changes that enhance the products.

Supplier coordination: We work with a variety of suppliers that are key to our ethos. Each supplier has its own challenges, which may affect its partners, including us.
