REGION: Gurgaon, Haryana
MATERIAL: Leather, Cotton, Silk, Jute
WHAT WE LIKE: Many of the workers at this workshop are from traditional textile weaving communities. They have used this knowledge to develop ingenious methods to marry textiles with leather. We love a bag that can seamlessly use a rugged cotton canvas outer, a soft grainy leather strap and a smooth silk lining.
FAIR TRADE: This is our largest workshop and it is one of the few facilities in India with official SEDEX fair trade certification (covers safe working conditions, sustainable wages, exclusion of child labor, non-discrimination, freedom of employment and right to a association).
