Graham Kandiah’s Paisley Handbag
Material mix. The moment I spotted this bag, it immediately made me smile and think of my favorite season, summer! The mix of colors and patterns, as well as its signature wood handles, make this bag designed by Graham Kandiah, and handmade in India, just so very special. I didn’t know of Graham Kandiah…so here’s what I Googled:
“If there is a common thread to Diane Graham, founder and designer of Graham Kandiah, it is her love of the sunny side of life.
From a childhood lived on East Coast shores from North Carolina to Connecticut, to an adult life filled with exotic travel, Graham has been drawn to the esthetics of time passed at the water’s edge. Her preference is always tropical breezes, palm trees and bare feet over anything else.
Creating a vision for clients including Revlon, British Airways and the African Wildlife Foundation enabled Graham to cultivate and indulge two other major pursuits – a love of drawing and a fascination with textiles. She frequently found herself sketching locales of her travels and collecting bundles of fabrics from all over the world.
It wasn’t until the birth of her daughter Ava, that she found a way to unite her passions. Graham Kandiah debuted in the Spring of 1999 with a small collection of resort items created for the perfect getaway – sarongs, tunics, pants and cover ups – all in gently vibrant, colorful patterns inspired by the classic designs of Northern India and filled with the spirit of seaside pastimes.”
