We're Sensing a Pattern

When does toting around gym clothes, farmer's market hauls, and munchkin supplies become a worldly adventure? When you have this colorful carryall on your shoulder. Craftswomen in India turn fabric remnants from textile mills into these bags using traditional block printing and vegetable dyes. Don't let the charming tassel detail wrapped around the strap fool you: Thick and sturdy, this satchel is prepared to hold all that and a super-sized bag of chips. Designed by Gyanendra Chaudhary and handmade by artisans in India.

Made in India

“We focus on the 'Three E's': Empowerment of women, Education, and the Environment.”

A textile grad from the National Institute of Fashion Technology in India, Gyanendra Chaudhary knew what he liked and didn't like in the market. What he could do without: inefficient production processes and far-from-ideal working environments. What he wanted to bring back: The rich heritage of North Indian crafts like embroidery, hand block printing, and weaving, which he does by hiring craftswomen to construct upcycled accessories out of discarded fabric. 


"We're committed to socially responsible growth and adding value to the communities in and around our facilities," he says, "and focus on the 'Three E's': Empowerment of women, Education, and the Environment."
