Bows to bags

profile1Raghav Sethi’s Tortus range of leather accessories aims to be as enduring and elegant as the tortoise it is named after. The label was launched in Mumbai in 2014:

“The reason for starting the label in the first place was that I was looking for a bag myself. I personally needed a bag that would make an impact when I carried it to work, as well as when I went to a bar, lounge or cafe, post work. But in the Indian market, I did not find anything that matched my sensibility and budget, and what surprised me even more was that there was no Indian brand at the time that was creating products for the young professionals of the country.”

Raghav likes to create an amalgam of pure natural materials coexisting in harmony with each other. Minimalism is not his style by intention though it is seen through his work:

“The basic is what I stick to, but I do like adding a dash of excitement to the products by adding printed or brightly colored linings on the inside, or experimenting with different treatments that do not take away from the product’s classic design.”

Raghav loves being his own boss: “I like creating things that I like to use and seeing each creation come to life, from a sketch on a paper to a product in the store.”
