Collector of indian graphics, author of books, blogger, I am also found of bags & pouch bags that provides a nice media for creation.


The project

The project is to create a catalogue of three different kinds of bags for this first collection :


1) satchels




2) square bags (jhola)






3) bag packs







as well as some pouch bags










These bags and pouch bags are made with a strong synthetic canvas, an inner lining making the bag totally waterproof. The printing technics are the best of the moment (japanese and german technologies), the printing can even be machine-washed (some colours can be even very closed to fluorescence). The designs are even ironable. The satchels and square bags are decorated with beads and sequins, hand-made work.




                                 Rivets will reinforce the stitching of the handle to the bags



                           Beads and sequins decorated the bags. Hand-made work.











I spent even two months in a specific factory to estimate the feasibility of that project, as well as to make some samples.

Now it is time to make an order and give this brand a visibility in the bags and clothing shops.



Changes and details for the bags


1) The canvas won’t be white but beige or black

2) the jhola bags will be about 20 % smaller



Why fund it?

For this project I need a minimum of 3.500 € to proceed a first order of a few hundreds bags and pouch bags, to pay the shipping, the import taxes and to pay the VAT, a plane ticket and the cost of staying in India a little while to keep a close eye on the production.

Then I will have to meet sales representatives to bring the products to shops and also to create a website for the brand.

Then if you are willing to support me in this adventure, I would be grateful.




If I get .. €



3500 €   I start the production of this catalogue although I would have just enough to make every designs in very small quantity therefore a few will remain for the sales representatives. But the brand will be launched.


4500 €   I can order the whole collection in fair quantity to fullfill my commitment towards you, and have some more to start distributing in shops.


5000 €   I can order the whole collection in fair quantity to fullfill my commitment towards you, and have some more to start distributing in shops, and also to finance some adverts in newspapers and magazines. I would also contribute to the making of a small paper catalogue and to pay for the Google Adwords campain that would reference the website.

Bel esprit pour ce projet incluant la prise en compte de tous les acteurs de sa réalisation. Le produit fini est de bonne qualité et les finitions en perles faites a la main amènent une touche humaine originale. Très bel esthétisme.

Happy d être la première à encourager ce projet. J ai eu la chance de voir ces sacs et pochettes de près et je les trouve originaux et super bien réalisés..... avec pleins de détails qui en font de beaux objets et un accessoire mode qui rehausse une tenue. J adore les perles et sequins cousus sur le motif imprimé.
