“ Design and craftsmanship has always been an intrinsic part of my life. As a child I would often visit my mother’s materials store and wrap myself in the finest chiffon’s from her bridal wear collection. I was already in love with fashion.
During my trips to a school friend’s leather bags export facility in Kolkata I found myself fascinated with being around so many bags. Their shiny metal fittings, bright leathers and fabrics left me completely mesmerized. These visits unveiled my passion for accessories, especially bags at an early age.
In the later years as I went on to pursuing a bachelors degree in Business Management. However I could not forget my first love — fashion, which took me to study Fashion Management at NIFT, New Delhi.
To understand the world of fashion I joined a buying agency where I sourced accessories for luxury international brands from India. It was an enriching experience in grasping the importance of quality at a deeper level.
My dream of building a business which was strong, unique yet one that I felt an innate connection with inspired me to create my own label. Delving deeply into the world of art and culture not only gave expression to my designs but also turned me into an avid traveler.
Accessory design came very naturally to me and this is why I decided to launch Lovetobag in 2011. With Lovetobag I not only wanted to make international level designs easily available in India, but also widen the reach of Indian designs overseas, by giving them a contemporary twist.
For me Lovetobag is a tribute to quintessential Indian craftsmanship blended beautifully with modern design sensibilities. “ – Ayushi Kanoi Gupta
