KINILUSH // Ulu The Label Sulawesi Big Round Bag Review

I always get nervous about online shopping. There are so many times I buy an item that looks absolutely breathtaking online. However, once I get the item in hand, I become instantly disappointed.

I stumbled upon KINILUSH's Ulu Sulawesi Big Round Bag through Instagram. And instantly, bought the item hoping that it would look half as beautiful as it did online.

How did I feel about the impulsive purchase?

The short answer... I was not disappointed, not one bit, not at all.

I added a personal touch to my bag by attaching a boho key-chain.

Bag Measurements
  • Diameter: 20cm
  • Depth: 7cm
  • Length of strap: 125cm

The bag next to my iPhone for a size reference.

The long answer... I think I found my new favorite online shop. And I can't stop browsing KINILUSH's website. This could be trouble for my bank account. Which is really no good.

1. Each bag is truly unique. My sister also purchased the same bag. We each received an unique item. The finishing on the bag is subtly different. In addition, the lining in each of our bags are made from different patterned cloths. When the company claims they hand make their items, they are not lying.

2. The strap is made of soft and genuine leather.

3. Surprisingly, the bag holds a lot more than I anticipated.

4. The bag comes with a sturdy metal buckle closure.

5. The bag comes in a bright red and tropical patterned dust-bag. In my opinion, the dust-bag looks handmade.

1. The bag has a distinct charred and smoky smell. I aired out the bag for a day and the smell strongly lingers. The smell actually bothers me. However, I can see some of my friends enjoying the natural smoky scent.

Overall, I give this item 5/5 stars


  1. Thank you so much for this great review. We're so happy to see that you love your bag.
    Thanks for shopping with us, and thanks for being awesome.

    Lots of love from the Kinilush Team :)

  2. Very useful review of this bag as I'm wondering whether it's worth the money to buy it. I was worried that the bag would swing around too much as the straps are attached right in the middle of the bag but it looks like this isn't a problem! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. of course! I really do love this bag. Let me know if you need me to answer any other questions <3
