Ten-Second Takeaway

This local store sells a well-designed selection of men’s shoes, belts, wallets and card holders at great prices, and for an ethical cause!

Love In The Time Of Leather

Created by Pankaj Khabiya and Piyush Luniya, the brand creates high-end men’s shoes and accessories {belts, wallets and keychains} for those with religious or personal values looking to avoid leather goods. If you love animals, but also love the luxury of leather, you’ll most definitely love Ethik — made with polymer fibres that look, feel and respond like leather, you’ll finally be able to reach a compromise between the two. The brand is the only one of its kind and is available only in Bangalore!

A Step In The Right Direction

From casual loafers to formal office footwear, Ethik has you covered. Their shoes are breathable, durable and water-resistant, and just because they’re ethical, doesn’t mean they’re boring — you can find pops of colour all over the store in yellow, blue and the regular browns and black. The pricing was surprisingly reasonable despite the high design quality, and starts from INR 2,500 for shoes, while accessories are INR 250 upwards. We only wish they had a range of women’s products!

#LBBTip

All Ethik products have a three-month guarantee, meaning if something goes wrong, they’ll fix it for free!
