The Mohinders Leather Shopper


Your New Everyday Bag

About The Leather Shopper

Nearly 7 years ago, our Founder + OG Mohinders Peddler, Michael, stumbled upon a social enterprise organization supporting artisan producer groups in the Kolkata area called SASHA.

One of the groups they worked with made some of the very first canvas shoe bags for Mohinders and painted on our original turquoise and red stripes! We’ve always wanted to do more with SASHA as we were impressed by their integrity and passion for promoting beautiful artisan-made goods.

When Michael learned that one of their producer groups were experts in leather bag making, weaving leather, and a new-to-us technique of embossing and hand-painting leather, we had to find a way to work together.

And so, The Mohinders Leather Shopper was born.

Similar to our shoes, we recommend cleaning your Leather Shopper with a soft brush or cloth and air drying. To keep the leather in good condition, we like Chamberlain's Leather Milk because it's natural and doesn't darken the leather.
