Is there a better rush than the feeling of a new bag? Move over new cars, we are talking new bag smell. I love bags! Pencil bags, makeup bags, a teeny tiny bag just for my headphones, oh baby... While many handbags are mass produced in factories with poor working conditions and low wages these beauties are a different story. This collective of artisans describe themselves as "deliberately inefficient". Each bag is slowly and lovingly handmade in India and each design is inspired by the sleepy village where they are crafted, nestled at the foothills of the Himalayas. This is what makes each bag so MAGICAL. When I carry this bag I can imagine the skilled hands that stitched it together. I can see the snow capped mountains, hear the rushing rivers and smell the forest air mingled with rich curries simmering in a pot. I think that's the only rush better than new bag smell!
