The Joshu + Vela 2011 collection of bags is just as fashionable as the spring fashion it complements.

The Joshu + Vela 2011 collection has a minimalist design with no visible graphics, but its elegant quality stands up on its own. According to Hypebeast, the main source of inspiration came from India’s Khādī movement, which "introduced independent artisan practice and self-reliance in India." The company developed a philosophy in which the importance of craftsmanship is strongly emphasized. Because of this empowering belief, all the products are handmade.

The collection includes handbags, man-bags for fashionable gentlemen and a few backpacks. They’re all currently available for purchase.
