Paulien and I were lucky to spent 8 incredible days in India, mostly spending our time in Kolkata (formerly called ‘Calcutta’) and neighboring villages, visiting old and new producers, and working on creating some new designs. We were inspired by these meetings with our producers, who are dedicated and enthusiastic in their collaborations with us. We made some fun updates to the core collection as well as some totally new products that we literally can’t WAIT to share with you all! OH we wish we could show you pictures…!! Soon :)
We also popped by to say hello to our warm and hospitable tanner Patrick Lee, and check what new kinds of cool leather he’s making these days. We might have some s u r p r i s e s coming your way this summer/fall! Shhh!
At the end of this wild, non-stop 8 days of hard work, Paulien and I still couldn’t help but be amazed at the gorgeous place where O My Bags are born, and at the hands of such kind-hearted people!
We love India!
Betsy & Paulien
