Label to know: Cord
Leather goods with clean lines and handwoven fabrics
Cord specialises in work-friendly handbags, laptop backs, totes, backpacks and more that are both functional and chic. They combine smooth, long-lasting leather with handwoven canvas in lively modern designs (including tropical leaves and twinkling constellations). Some items can be personalised as well. The designers behind the Delhi-based label are Pranav Guglani and Neha Singh.
Cord is committed to traditional Indian craftsmanship, and their designs are modern, but not trendy. The brand’s latest collections are called Archetypal (think minimalist neutrals), Elementary (floral and monochrome textures), and Natsukashii (modern, eclectic weaves). They also have a small collection of dyed silk ties and pocket squares in smoky prints.
