FAIR MADE LOCAL ARTS AND CRAFTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD

Handgemachte Tasche aus natürlichen Palmenblättern aus Mexiko

The concept store NANDI based in Berlin collects and produces beautiful individual interior pieces and hand-picked fashion accessories from all over the world. 

With the wearness, the label has created an exclusive special edition of the Quesadilla Bag made of natural palm leaves in blue.

NANDI means happiness in Sanskrit. It is also the name of the heart project of the best friends Vanessa and Leonie, which started as an online shop in 2016. The two share a passion for travelling to faraway countries, from where they brought home exceptional pieces they had fallen in love with on their journeys. The interior accessories were so well received by their friends that the business idea for Nandi arose from them.

Vanessa und Leonie, the two founders of NANDI

From the very start, the founders knew that they only wanted to sell hand-picked products that they would place in their own four walls: "We were on the road in Peru, Brazil, Morocco, Laos and Thailand and collected many great and above all unique interior items and accessories for nandi. Many of them are one-off a kind pieces that only exist once in the world".

Own products are handmade in close cooperation with local workers.

NANDI now sells products from 12 different countries from artisans and partner NGOS. At the moment, however, the founders are concentrating primarily on building NANDI as a brand. For this purpose, the label has its own products made in Mexico, Indonesia, Peru and Morocco in close cooperation with a team of local workers, who are paid fairly.

For the wearness, the label has created a special edition of its most beautiful bag.

Local Craftsmen producing the Quesadilla Bag

The Quesadilla Bag is made in Mexico from 100% natural palm leaves from the rock palm. The rock palm grows on stony or rocky soils in large parts of Mexico and Central America. During its growth, the palm loses its leaves about four to seven times a year, up to 2 meters long. They are dried and thus lose their original colour. After a long drying time, the leaves are cut into individual ribbons, braided and subsequently dyed. They are then sewn together into finished round mats and smoothed with a kind of flat iron. Two of the mats make a Quesadilla bag. The individual processing steps are taken over by a multitude of craftsmen from different villages, because each craftsman has his own manual skills. Without these diverse handicrafts, the Quesadilla bag would not exist in this form. At the end each bag comes to a creation process of about four weeks...

It is exclusively available here in the colour combination of different blue shades.
