    Available Online

    What Makes It Awesome?

    We all love shopping but when you can give back to a community, it’s always a great feeling. Run solely by hearing-impaired artists, Atulyakala is a lifestyle brand that highlights the craftsmanship of these artists, giving them a platform. 

    The aim of this brand is to empower the 18 million deaf and mute people of India. Atulyakala tries to do this by providing employment and education to deaf students with the help of their proceedings. A large part of the proceeds that come in from the sales, goes towards the education of deaf and mute students at their training centre. Atulyakala also believes in spreading awareness about the Indian Sign Language (ISL) with their venture. 

    From the brand's collection, you'll find a bag for any occasion. From sling bags to totes, wallets and much more, Atulyakala offers various types of bags to choose from. You can find these bags in neutral colours such as black, blue and white or in quirky graphics. All these bags are handcrafted and made with materials that don’t cause any irritation to the skin. You can also find jute bags here.

    We love Atulyakala's collection of tote bags starting at INR 500 and their canvas-style totes are perfect to carry when you're on a holiday or away for the weekend. They come in many different colours and patterns and have ample space inside. Their collection of laptop sleeves starting at INR 450 are also great for gifting purposes. The indigo dream sling bag is apt if you want something dainty-looking to pair with Indian wear and their wooden engraved modern bags are their U.S.P. If you don't mind shelling out INR 1,500, this bag is a must-have to make a statement with. 

    Atulykala's bags are available on their website so you can shop easily from the comfort of your home. Still reading?

    What Could Be Better?

    We'd love to see a few more styles in the collection. Fo example, clutches that'll compliment party wear or Indian wear.
