Sucker for bags? Well, ladies, then it's time to upgrade your collection with some stunning ones from Shilpin.
This Pune-based brand beautifully blends the traditional and modern to create handcrafted bags made of fabrics in super vibrant colours and designs. Find a pretty kickass collection of slings, totes, wallets, shoulder bags, mobile pouches and modular backpacks at quite affordable rates. The designs are a celebration of age-old crafts and traditions practiced across the country, albeit with a contemporary look.
My favourites, without a doubt, are the sling bags and modular backpacks. They all come with a water resistant inner lining and are spacious to stock all your daily essentials. They come in different kinds - compact, double chin, capsule and big slings. So, throw in all your essentials like keys, glasses, mobile, cards, wallet and a small water bottle and roam around comfortably. If you're looking for something smaller, then the mobile pouches that can also fit in keys, money bills, coins, pen and a small notepad along with a six-inch screen length phone is ideal.
But if you're a backpack person (like me!), then their modular backpacks are perfect for daily use. Throw in your diary, book, Kindle, I-Pad, water bottle, wallets and stuff. It also has a separate pocket for your cell phone. Best part? It can be worn as a sling or crossbody bag too! Awesome, right?
