THE FIRANGI STORY
A traveler from Europe lands up a small artisanal village in western Rajasthan where they are spinning a traditional handloom and creating vibrant patterns on a fabric through complicated “coding”, similar to a computer code which, when compiled, outputs a particular shape, colour or a design. This traveler who also happens to be a computer programmer joins hands with the locals to create a backpack that is a striking amalgamation of sophisticated European design with a vibrancy of Indian ethnic fabrics.
This is a story of our new series of bags we named – The Firangi.
The Firangi series comes in two variants – Backpack and Messenger Bag.
Made from 100% cotton canvas, this backpack sticks to our no-plastic policy yet maintains the strength and durability of synthetic fibers used in typical bags these days. Faux-leather highlights and finishing. Brass coated fittings for fasteners, mount-hooks and magnetic buttons on the main straps.
This decorative handloom called Durrie is indigenous to Rajasthan and was used as a means of surviving in harsh desert climate as it keeps warm in winters and cold in summers. The traditional weave pattern brings out the nostalgia of India during Raj and yet blends well with even the most modern urban backdrops.
The Firangi Messenger Bag features a 15″ padded laptop compartment secured with a velcro strap.
Slick and compact 5 litres of storage to take care of your everyday essentials without bloating up the space. It is accessed with strong and durable brass coated magnetic buttons.
Two 5″x8″ pockets on the front. One full-length pocket on the front. One full-length pocket secured with magnetic straps on the back.
Brass plated hooks, rivets and fittings for extra strength. Premium faux leather straps and highlights to complete the look.
The strap is made from 100% cotton belt and has padded shoulder support with highlight of the DUrrie fabric. The strap is removeable via the quick-release buckles so you can instantly transform this into a formal bag for that swanky new shirt you bought.
