This Bag Brand Is Reviving Traditional Indian Fabrics From Handloom Weavers And Stealing Our Hearts
What Makes It Awesome
Bag lovers (and we are a crowd), new brand alert! If you’re looking for handbags to go with your office wear or chic slings to pair with your #OOTD Goals, check out Terku. Started by Fariha Begum, the USP of this brand is that their bags are made from traditional Indian fabrics. They directly work with handloom weavers across South India and source eco-friendly and sustainable fabrics to make lifestyle products. Once Fariha gets the right yarn, she gives them to weavers (most of whom are over 60 years of age) in Erode who give them life. Their recent collection ‘Varnajaalam’ showcased a series of accessories made from handwoven cotton. They’ve got bags in the dreamiest shades and patterns. We love the texture of the cotton sling bag with green, blue, and purple colours. The sassy clutch in summery yellow will make you clutch it all day. They’ve also got striped laptop bags which talk business. The bags are priced from INR 1,500.
What Could Be Better
It’s a bit pricey, but the brand is helping sustain the weaving community of South India and is going the extra mile to revive indigenous fabric, so yay!
