New Collection Preview!

Shivangi Parikh

Hello Folks... Hope your year is going well so far! I am super excited to share with you the latest on my end. If you recollect, I had talked about trying to introduce at least one new product type each year. Last year was about hand spun khadi tote bags and wallets. This year, my heart is set on making table linens from the the same khadi material! Here is a sneak peek at my first attempt.

Gray Warli Napkins_ShivamCreations

The dinner napkins feature screen printed folk art on khadi fabrics. The unique cotton linen blend makes it a great choice for the table: its super absorbent and gets thicker and softer with every wash. The texture of the fabric makes it look rich without hurting the wallet as much, which suits most savvy shoppers ;) 

This print below is a traditional folk art called Warli painting, which comes from the Western region of India and dates back thousands of years. These simple stick like figures were used to depict various natural elements of earth, as well as daily life and activities of that era. 

For the initial launch, I have only made one set of 6 napkins each in these different Warli options shown below. 

Here is one of my favorite colors, peacock blue. The gold feather just makes it look like a luxury item! Some of you may have seen this recently on my Instagram or Facebook page. I think this one would be a great addition to a Spring or Summer brunch, don't you?

You can find more information about sizing, and check out more detailed pictures of the entire collection here.

I know these seem like a departure from my core yoga bags business, but trust me, its not. My yoga bags are going to be around till those fabrics and trims last! But being a creative, I cannot just stick to one design! lol. There is this constant need to reinvent my work. The core remains the same though: Making something that is stylish, functional and eco-friendly. These napkins are a great way to add zing to your place settings, while investing in something that you can use and re-use, instead of just buying disposable paper napkins. 

Hope you like these!! Which one is your favorite??

Have a great weekend :)

xoxo, Shivangi

New Yoga Bag Designs + Holiday Sale

Shivangi Parikh

Hello My Dears!

I am super excited to launch our latest designs in yoga mat bags! So far, all my yoga bags have been designed as vertical carriers, but with this one we changed things up a bit. Some of you suggested I try a horizontal yoga mat bag because its easier to distribute the weight of the mat. Well, here we are :)

What makes this bag so special? Its made from my favorite fabric of the year: khadi. You guys have probably heard me talk about this cotton-hemp blend all year round, but I do so for a good reason. The fabric is woven by artisans in India who are able to support their families and the local economies. The fabric is super strong, and its organic woven texture is simple, yet gorgeous!! Take a look for yourself.

The yoga mat bag is reinforced with double seams and a lining. There is a pocket for your phone and small wallet. The length of the bag is ample so you can tuck in your water bottle in the front. This bag is perfect for all your standard yoga mats, i.e. 24"W x 72"L.

The best part, its going for a really good price point of $29.99, which is the same you would pay for any mass produced bag at a sporting goods store...why not get something handmade and unique for the same price!

These bags are going to be listed on my shop and my Etsy store. They are just in time for the holidays :) Speaking of, starting now I will be running a special promotion for the holidays.

Take 10% off your total of more than $25 by using code HOLIDAY10 at checkout. Take 20% off when you spend more than $60 by using code HOLIDAY20 at checkout.

Have a great weekend :)

New Product Alert: Fall Tote Bags

Shivangi Parikh

After bringing a pop of color and style to the yoga bag industry, I am super excited about our new tote bags! They are absolutely unique, stylish and blend eco-friendly fashion with durability.

The idea of any tote bag is very simple: a bag that is big enough to tote all your everyday essentials. While there are many tote bags in the market, what makes our totes unique is the Khadi fabric used for the body of the bag. Made from hand spun cotton-hemp blend, khadi is very strong just like linen, but without the huge price tag. Because it is spun, the fabric has a very natural, organic pattern and feel to it. The leather base and straps give it a classic, timeless look as well as provide support. 

And we can all feel good about contributing to environment and economic sustainability: there are no chemicals or artificial fibers in the fabric, and the spinning is done by artisans in small villages and towns in India who depend on this income. Both factors are in line with the values of my shop, so I selected khadi over regular cotton canvas or linen.

Carry your everyday essentials like wallet, phone, tablet or similar portable device, make up, notebooks, shawl, you name it! There are two pockets for the smaller items as well. The tote has a tough cotton lining for extra strength and protection of items.

Here is one design, with more of the khadi as the body of the bag. The leather strip runs on the bottom one-third of the bag. Brass rivets add style to the leather straps. Available in 4 colors.

Here is another design with a flat, wider leather bottom base. Available in 3 colors.

Hope you like the designs! Aren't they just perfect for Fall? It is a different aesthetic than our colorful yoga bags, but variety is the spice of life :)

For more information about dimensions you can visit the shop page. Since this is a first run, only limited quantities are available.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

xo, Shiv :)
