Our Story

NILA Heritage

NILA bags are special. They are 100% handmade by unsung craftsmen (or in this case craftswomen) and the tribes of some of the most modest villages in India. Rapidly vanishing handmade artistry is where we wanted to infuse our aesthetics. Our first series of bags comes from a small village in India near Pondicherry. 

These craftswomen are artists who come from a long tradition of bag making. We are driven to provide these struggling artists with sustainable job opportunities so their unique artistry lives on. By buying this bag, you will be helping empower these women and inspire their communities. NILA bags don’t just make you look good… they make you feel good.
