    Ten-Second Takeaway

    If you love yourself a good bag, and have been saving up for one that can contain your universe, then your search might end with Chennai’s Hydes Studio creations.

    A Bag For Every Kind Of You

    Clean lines, classic silhouettes and a pop of colour — that’s how we would describe Hyde Studio’s bags. From roomy totes to practical cross body versions, all the bags are functional and come with additional pockets to stash everything from cameras to make up and stationery. We love ourselves multi tasking bags, don’t we?

    Leather That Weathers

    Hydes Studio was started by Ramya Balachandran and Hari Madhavan, who combined their expertise in leather and design to create a label that would offer modern, contemporary bags for women. The duo dipped into Hari’s family’s leather industry background to learn a thing or two about working with it, and the fact that Hari trained at the Instituto Marangoni Milan in fashion design also helped. Ramya herself is a designer as well. The duo claim that all the leather they use is imported and sourced from factories with BLC {a leather certification trademark} and LWG {Leather Working Group, an environmental auditing protocol} certification. All effluents are treated through a reverse osmosis process and the output is used for agriculture.

    For The Bag Ladies

    Inspired by form, shapes and structures of buildings, architecture or even people, Hydes Studio offers a small but really diverse look book. Our first love is of course the Clara, an oversized tote available in tan and black colours. This is an everyday bag that can be used to stash everything from your Mac to your makeup and more. The handy pockets and compartments inside make life easier. For those who cannot be separated from their camera, there is the textured Amy, your new bestie designed to carry your precious camera, journals and more {available in tan, chocolate and beige}. Looking for a slightly edgier version of a tote bag, then Zoya available in tan or brown comes with studs in its handles or the classy Grace maybe, which is sturdy number.

    For a day when you don’t want to carry your big bag around, there is Sera a cross body-meets-satchel {we are loving the tan, but there’s also black, grey and beige to choose from } to run errands, and Cleo a trendy bucket bag with drawstrings and an adjustable strap with pockets inside. The good thing is that all the bags come with an option for you to pick from different colours. And the not so good thing is perhaps the prices, so good luck with that saving business. But the splurge might be worth it!

    Price: INR 4,250 – INR 6,500
