Kantha in fusion with Leather – Maheejaa

The word “Kantha” originates from the Sanskrit language which means rags or old worn out garments generally out of their proper use. Ancient Indian culture, dating as old as pre Vedic –era, didn’t dispose-off the fabrics misfit for their proper usages but recycled them using their artistry, imagination and with the help of needle and thread. It is one of the oldest forms of embroidery in South-East Asia originating and flourishing mainly in Bengal, Odisha and Bangladesh. Over time the depiction and use of stories, motifs, symbols and styles in Kantha work slowly distinguished the art as a portrayal of a culture; a culture born and nourished with the very basic tunes of earth, water and soil. The beauty of this form of embroidery is its grandeur in simplicity. With almost zero investment and using some basic techniques of stitching the women of the eastern part of Indian subcontinent has been creating an artwork over generations carrying a legacy of tradition. Kantha is not just a form of embroidery only; it is actually a piece of history, a story of a time and philosophy artistically expressed in fabric and thread by the very common people of land. Maheejaa, from its very inception and course of business always portrayed and showcased the contribution of these undistinguished creators of history to the world in an unique and innovative way because they care as much as for the tradition as they do for their business…

Time fades all but not Leather

“Time fades everything”….. but not leather. Your miseries and happiness will fade away with years passing by but your leather goods will not. It will survive through decades and even centuries. The oldest leather product found in the world history is a pair of shoes from a cave in Armenia which dates back 3500 BC. Yes you read it right, it is a 5500 years old footwear and still in good condition. An original leather product has this unique feature that it lives over generations with little or almost no maintenance. So if you are concerned about durability and longevity choose only original leather products be it a bag or shoe or jacket or just a leather belt. Many a things in our life carry memories but can’t retain it because of its vulnerability over time, but leather can. Original leather products are not just a fad like a bubble, it’s a signature, a signature which is difficult to erase even by the time itself. The leather market in today’s world is not completely leathery or better to say not the most part of it. Artificial leather, which is basically a machine made synthetic material with leathery finish, is taking up the regime day by day. They are factory made, glossy, do not undergo any time taken tedious processing and cost less than the original leather. But their durability and strength is limited and they start to falloff within years losing their initial shine and glaze. On the other hand original leather products start to shine and gleam the more time and uses it pass. Original leather is costlier as it passes many steps to get processed properly and not made just by pressing some buttons and switches, but it pays off over time. Any type of artificial leather, when you buy it, is at its peak and starts aging thereafter showing the signs of deterioration but original leather starts at their nascence and matures over time slowly. So if you want a pocket friendly quick showing staff, then synthetic leather might be a better choice for you, but if you are the kind who loves to see their investment paying off an incremental dividend over time them choose only original leather products.


Business with compassion – Maheejaa Bags

Business with compassion… is a new idea floating around to make the companies act more sensibly to the environment, people and society they count for. They improve their filtration process to emit cleaner air, water, waste, byproducts and do activities to improve the life of the people they engage with. All of these activities cost money in addition to their normal cost. To keep their profit margins increasing in spite of these activities the business houses add these costs to their prices thus shifting the burden to the consumers. Being a sensible consumer you bear it to feel the pride of being a part of the business group who does business with compassion. But there are some companies who do it differently. They do their business on the foundation of making the world better around them… be it environmental, social, economical or cultural. They do not damage the environment or the people they deal with and repair it afterwards but they build and develop on a positive note from the very beginning. And because of this they don’t have to incur any extra cost to compensate any damage and shift it tactically to the consumer with some catchy tagline. So you don’t need to pay anything extra as the cost of restoration and healing. Maheejaa starts with processed leather and hand embroidered fabrics created by common rural people and then these two are fused together using simple tools and kits to create some outstanding products. Not any part of its business line damage or deprive anything and then patch it up but it starts to develop everything it uses by adding value at each and every step of its business line. Business with compassion is not a makeover for Maheejaa, it is the very basic source of their business.
