In 2011, our founder was selling little handmade accessories like brooches and necklaces, while she still had her day job. Egged on by the loving response to her handcrafted accessories, she ventured into digital art accessories such as wall prints and laptop skins; and finally, after quitting her job, she moved on to clothes. As they say, there has been no looking back since then.
Ours is a small, home-run business that involves family members, a well-knit team and ethically employs local artisans and workers. Today, Howrah Bridge is a brand that makes fun, contemporary products while staying close to its roots. We mostly work with natural fabrics and take inspiration from mundane elements to design pieces that culminate in an aesthetic amalgamation of the traditional & the modern, the old & the new, the crude beauty of handmade & the cutting-edge quality of technology.
