Leather handbag label RISA, is more of a passionate affair than business acumen for Delhi-based sisters Riddhima and Saloni Sayal. “We grew up around bags, lots of them. We would always tweak the bags in production from the family run export house and started to experiment with design from scratch as the years went by. The love affair with leather became too serious and that’s how our label Risa was born.”
The brand explores indigenous craftsmanship with intricate detailing in weaving and embossing on leather and fabricating exclusive luxury designs. Infusing specialized modern production techniques with traditional hand-tooling, punching and embroidery defines the brand philosophy. The leather used for the product is processed in an in-house facility. The high-end patent leather is imported however… The brand offers wide range of bags for both men and women like shoppers, totes, wallets, evening clutches and handbags manufactured with buff wash, cow and sheep leather.
While the parent company (Aries Inc.), handles large scale production for stores like Anthropology, Zara, Asos, Dorthy, Perkins, Armani, Pepe, etc. to name a few, Risa’s vision is to tap into domestic retail and offering international quality standards along with very competitive brands.
