Awesome Bags from the Designer Direct to You!

As a designer I use Jute as my core fabric of choice and I am excited to have created the world's largest range of Designer Hessian Bags just for You! I also use Juco (Jute blended with Cotton), Canvas, Cotton and Handloom fabrics to complement my range. I have designed my jute bags to last. Made from premium grade jute they are double stitched with inner lamination making them strong and sturdy. Cheaper grade jute is typically loosely weaved which won't last as long, tends to flop and sold for few dollars in supermarkets.

A lot of hard work goes into each Thyli bag. I work closely with my production team to create these awesome bags using my intuition and customer feedback, sourcing fabrics, tweaking my designs to reduce wastage in production and packaging; and traveling overseas to work with the sampling team on the production floor to bring my creations to life!

Having studied in India's premier fashion institute I design my bags in Sydney, Australia and also in India while working with my production partner in India. I have visited rural India to source handloom Kalamkari and Ikkat fabrics as I am fascinated by the colours and intricate designs. I have seen first hand how these fabrics are made and also hope to support the artisans' endangered craft by using the fabrics in my designs.

From Beach Bags, Totes, Lunch Bags, Hand Bags, Clutches, Pouches, Market Bags, Grocery Bags to every day Shopping Bags. Great as gifts as each Thyli bag is unique which can be reused. Bags are posted worldwide from Sydney, Australia.

I would be delighted to hear from you or if would like to see any new features in my future designs.

Every bag counts!

About Jute/Hessian

Jute plant is a natural grass known as the "golden fibre" that is Earth friendly with a low carbon footprint compared to cotton. Jute relies on rain water and uses less water than cotton. Cotton uses large amounts of irrigated water, is pesticide and fertilizer intensive which places pressure on rivers, soil, biodiversity and the eco system. I have used Jute from the Bay of Bengals wetlands where most of the world's jute is sourced. Jute grows quickly, requires less land and millions of rural people rely on harvesting jute as a source of income. Hessian or burlap fabric is made from the Jute plant that is extremely strong and durable. Hessian, Burlap and Jute terms are used interchangeably. Products made from Jute include sand bags, ropes, mats, shoes and furniture.
