Fair Trade Policy
Our creating a one-off creation is a process that begins not on the factory floor, but in the hearts and minds of our artists. We have retained an exceptional legacy of craftsmanship which embodies a long and glorious heritage coupled with the exceptional tradition of sourcing the finest leather grade and then woven by master craftsmen; the art of weaving has not faded for centuries It takes enormous time and effort to weave the bags by hand and then individually wash the bags with special dye - an extremely critical process.
No two bags would look the same. The bags do not only offers a rich look but also is extremely soft and glamorous. Such bags boast a style that is rugged-chic, and possess a distinctly artisanal look and feel. The leather used is full-grain leather of premium quality - and the more you wear it, the more charm and personality it acquires. Milo bags exude character - from the uniquely-washed leather and the distressed hardware to the confident designs. All Bags are made with love in India
