Made in Mumbai, India



“ We are compulsive artists — interested in old textiles and new art; archival film and digital images; salvaged material and abstract ideas. Our approach is not nostalgic; instead, to celebrate what’s enduring about design. That middle ground of time-honored craft and timeless form.  We are a design house that creates beautiful life-ready goods.  We are a brand that stands for simplicity in a complex life. "


Founders Classic Backpack

  • The Founders Backpack is a lyrical ode to the classic school backpack. While the throwback is nostalgic, the interpretation is not.  The leather is hand-oiled for softness and fluidity.  A roomy interior has multiple conveniences, including a built-in laptop sleeve and a cleverly concealed rear zippered pocket that holds valuables away from view.  A handwoven top-carry leather handle and Ajrakh interior lining accent the design.
