Find vegan and faux leather bags exclusively for men, at this Pune-based online label
Six-MONTH-old Pune-based online bag brand Scarters is all about keeping it minimal and suave. Owned by 30-something-year-olds and managed by a young team, the label promises to give you a curated experience of bags, organisers, haversacks and more, sans the problem of having to choose from a clutter of products. The line that is exclusively for men, is minimalistic and high on functionality and aesthetics. Made of premium quality contemporary synthetic materials that are water resistant, Scarters uses premium quality faux or vegan leather for their products.
With the release of their new collection that now has Cross Body bags and their summer campaign named Unwind, Scarters is all about what a man needs in a day. Scroll through their Instagram (scarters.shop) page and you’ll notice gleaming leather bags, aesthetically photographed models and a whole lot of sophistication.
Nikita Vhora, the brand manager at Scarters says that taking care of people’s passion and professions by providing them thoughtfully crafted accessories is their motive. “You may be an entrepreneur — we have just the right kind of messenger bags or smart backpacks for you. We even have a bag — The Organiser, that can be vertically used as backpacks and can be carried as a messenger for people who travel a lot for work,” she says. If you’re a person who needs to constantly carry around your MacBook or iPad, their signature designs — The Retro and The Informal are specially handcrafted to complement an Apple product.
For travellers and digital nomads, there’s The Metropolitan, which is touted to be India’s first end-to-end openable backpack. It comes with a USB cable, an AUX cable and an external hub for you to comfortably charge your phone or listen to music on the go. Their colour range stays in the black to white palette, with shades like cedar brown, charcoal black, grey matte, cloud grey and blue grey.
Nikita says that they also have a surprising number of female customers who perceive their products as unisex and carry it off with panache. She opines that there is a shortage of well-designed, premium yet affordable accessories for men. “There is a lack of understanding in the industry as to what men need to enhance their professional lives while making a style statement. We bridge that gap.”
