In an effort to support local businesses, we decided to buy some of our textiles from local textile shops. Buying textiles from the local shops in Vrindavan for the very first time was quite the adventure. Due to it being a major industry all across India, textiles are relatively inexpensive to purchase. However, prior to arriving at one of the local shops, we were warned by our women at the sewing center to watch out for the genuine sounding salesmen who could take us for a ride on our money. Keeping that in mind, we proceeded with our quest to find the most breathtaking textiles that would eventually become our sustainable bags.
