Welcome to your October bag round up.
There’s a mysterious richness to the colours of late autumn, and it signals the start of a new season, with harvest festivals, Thanksgiving, Halloween and bonfire parties lighting the way. It’s also the start of many other festivities around the world. This week saw the auspicious Durga Puja festival take place across India. During that time, our production facilities close and very slowly re-open throughout the month.
This week I’m in Kolkata celebrating the start of Diwali with our production partners there. It’s a
chance to spend some time visiting our social business venture, Cocobagh,
which we look forward to updating you on next month. If the weather forecast doesn’t improve, I could very well end up looking like a drowned rat by then.
If you want to stay connected to the work we do and the bags we make, we’d
love you to follow us on twitter at @bagsforlife
. Bags for life aren’t just a commodity, they’re the lifeblood for many of the men and women who make them. So keep sending us your bag pics, and as always, thank you for reading! James
