gold nameplateGOLD IS A NAMEPLATE!
Shiny, happy brass tags made just for us at a renowned fair trade jewellery workshop near Delhi, and stitched on by the talented hands of ladies at our tailoring unit in Bangalore.


organic fair trade cottonORGANIC, FAIR TRADE COTTON
India's cotton farming industry is in crisis: read more about it here.  Supporting demand for fair trade and organic cotton enables more farmers to make the switch to happier, healthier, more sustainable processes.  The cotton we use for lining and backing our bags is 100% organic and fair trade certified.


pinatexPIÑATEX
Animal skins ain't our bag, baby.  Instead we use amazing Piñatex!  This brand-spanking-new vegan leather alternative uses pineapple leaf fibres that would otherwise go to waste, to provide an additional source of income for farmers in the Philippines.  It's tough, durable and not a single pineapple was harmed along the way.


YKK zipsQUALITY YKK ZIPS
Built to last!  A big chunky gold one on top and a neat little colour-coordinated one guarding all the treasures you keep in the inner pocket.  There is something so satisfying about the swoosh of a top-quality zip!


drawstring bagsSUSTAINABLY PACKAGED
Too much plastic is not fantastic.  Our clutches come tucked inside drawstring bags made from fair trade, organic cotton, stamped with our logo by the awesome students at a vocational training centre for differently abled young adults in Bangalore.

All these exciting fabrics and trimmings make their way to Bangalore, where they are assembled into our rather special bags by a rather special team at a small fair trade tailoring unit.  Read more about the team here!
