Soft and slouchy, at once classic and on-trend, it’s the details that take this roomy bag beyond basic. The top flap is accented by a line of brass studs and a playful tassel; a subtle pleat adds to the relaxed silhouette. Varun, the artisan who creates this luxuriously soft bag says, “My designs are for everydayfresh and casual.”
Crafted in Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India. Cowhide suede with brass; cotton lining. Features a zip and snap closure, and three inner pockets. Approximately 11 3/4" H x 18"W, strap is adjustable from approximately 25 1/2" to 45".
Varun was born and raised in Delhi, where he remembers being a quiet child who enjoyed exploring nature and was fascinated by the colorful stones and jewels in his father’s costume jewelry workshop. “My father never did any formal training but his passion and determination were strong,” says Varun. It was during a trip to a jewelry exhibition with his father that Varun decided to try working with leather. He set up an area in his father’s workshop and collaborated with a designer and several craftspeople to create his first sample bags. “[The items] got a good response, and my father was so supportive,” he says. “Since then it has been a great journey.”
