We partnered with Loom to Luxury, an artisan collective of weavers located in Varanasi, India, to design the silk jacquard used for this bag. Our collaboration aims to bring 500-year old silk handloom weaving techniques to New York to highlight and support local artisans and their craft. Loom to Luxury is a partner of Nest, a nonprofit organization committed to the social and economic advancement of global artisans and homeworkers.
The well-being of the garment workers and artisans skillfully producing our bags is always at the core of our design and manufacturing philosophy as we work with our partner factories to incrementally implement “The behno Standard.”
