Studio Notes 

Our Kota Market Bag is produced in Rajasthan from recycled nylon. These brightly coloured thailas (bags) with contrasting stripes are part of the daily landscape in India, used for shopping or travelling. Designed to be robust, these bags are perfect as a daily carrier or as a resort bag.

Please be aware that each bag is made by small scale producers from recycled nylon, so the finished item may have rough sewing and minor thread frays within the fabric. The bags are not waterproof/rainproof. They are however, beautiful and eye-catching so we invite you to embrace the beauty of imperfection.

Dimensions vary by design:

Small: Enough room for 20 mangoes

Medium: Enough room for 40 mangoes

Origin: Rajasthan, India

Content: Recycled Nylon

 

For every item sold we will donate meals to feed four people in need.

This is a part of our pledge in support of The Felix Project to alleviate food poverty by preventing food waste. Find out more through our work for good page here.

 


 

 

The meeting of industrial designers Charles and Ray Eames and Jawaharlal Nehru inspires the background to our collection. They form a modern interpretation of what three visionary pioneers may well have worn to their inspired meeting today, possibly under a coconut tree sipping masala chai.

Jawaharlal Nehru, the first prime minister of the newly independent nation-state of India, invited the Eames’s to help provide a catalyst of change, newness and creativity for the developing country. The Eames’ were enlisted to assist with this challenge, along with a host of other scientists, engineers, designers, and architects from Europe and North America. Their frequent travel throughout the 1950s and 60s sparked a global fascination with non-west design, in film, architecture and exhibition. The Eames Report was the first attempt by a developing nation to utilise design principles as a tool for national regeneration. The many bright children seen in the villages inspired the report; curious, open, active, beautiful young people with tremendous potential.
