Annah Chakola’s family has been in the Indian textile business for over a century and a half, so to say working with fabric is in her blood wouldn’t be that far of a reach. After years of witnessing beautiful fabrics ends and threads going to waste, Annah decided to turn one man’s trash into another woman’s treasure. Each piece that Annah designs for Boho Gypsy’s recycled fabric collection is carefully handcrafted by a registered Global Fair Trade women’s collective in Northern India. She’s forged relationships with many similar initiatives around the globe to help bring her designs to fruition. Supporting other mom and pop shops — no matter where they are — is important to this conscientious entrepreneur.
NIRMALA KILIM WEEKENDER
Each journey ive taken to date has opened my mind to a deeper understanding of this life I choose to live. its like a release, life makes more sense, you let things be and beauty follows.
My home is filled with trinkets from these distant lands Ive had the pleasure of visiting , its how I grew up, my parents home was filled with antiques from all over the world. Thus this bag is named after my mother, Nirmala! i feel the spirit in each piece and collections such as rare textiles is what led me to design a line of bags that give off the same spirit. Functional yet has its own tale to weave.
Each bag is one of a kind in its fabric composition but with a very similar vibe. They are Handcrafted by traditional craftsman in India whose craft has been passed on for generations. As a small label we work hard at supporting these enterprises to help keep small business alive in our little way.
**** Once you place your order, we will send you images of 4 bags to choose.
