I am all about the leather backpack. I have been carrying mine (my favourite vintage find ever, from a shop in the East Village) for the last year and when it eventually wears, I have my sights set on this beauty from Dhora.
Dhora was established in 2012 by Aavriti Jain and Siddharth Daspan, also responsible for Jaipur design store Teatro Dhora. The Rajasthan based designers create leather goods (as well as cotton and linen clothing and jewellery) that are fresh and contemporary without losing their provenance.
The backpack is beautifully crafted out of tempered leather with beautiful top stitch detailing and available on Indelust, an e-commerce site focused on ethically sourced products from the subcontinent that carries some of my favourite labels.
