Steal Alert: We Found These Stylish Linen Bags For INR 250 & Less

Ten-Second Takeaway

We discovered a street shop in Gariahat with a collection of high-end linen bags that we just had to tell you about!

This Is Totes Amazing

This little roadside stall run by a middle-aged, bespectacled fella is bang opposite Manyavar {the one close to Junior Brothers, Ananda bookstore and Cellar Wines}. It grabbed our attention with its small display of elegant linen, jute and canvas totes. Trust us, his stock of linen bags was high-end quality. Not just the texture, colours and patterns, but the chic, good quality leather handles also add an element of style to these trendy totes.

The best part? The man {who refused to be named} asked for INR 250 {for the big blue one} and INR 250 {for the beige one featured above and the blue and white one you can see below}. But we bargained like crazy and got it down to INR 150 and 250.

The bags have single button closure, a pocket inside with zips and lots of space inside, enough to fit all your stuff – books, booze, or your gym kit, pick your poison!

And they have this lovely striped lining in luxe cotton that gives them an extra touch of coolness.

Gariahat has several street-side bag shops selling jute and canvas export surplus at throwaway prices. We have stocked up on bags meant for MoMa {Museum of Modern Art in New York}, Berlin art galleries, clothing companies such as The Banana Republic, and more. This fellow has some of the best stocks, so keep tabs on his stall. Check our recommendation for more about the stalls selling jute and other bags in Gariahat here.

So, We're Saying...

Go and get your pick before somebody else grabs them all. You’d be crazy to miss such a steal deal!
