With nine stores across India and London, travellers and luxury aficionados can now also shop their range of beautifully crafted leather travel goods at their new boutique in the trendy haunts of Al Serkal Avenue in Al Quoz.

The New Delhi based company specialises in modern, expertly crafted handcrafted leather goods and accessories for travel and lifestyle, ranging from handbags and backpacks to suitcases, trunks and stationery. Formed over a decade ago, the team have been spending the last few years expanding their global operations, expanding into the UK and UAE, all while retaining a boutique-feel across both their collection and stores.

Gautam Sinha, the founder and creative director wants the store to be an experience for a well-travelled discerning individual with a personal style rather than simply a point of sale -one of the main reasons why they are located in the artistic hub of Al Serkal. As part of this ambition, Nappa Dori is also home to Cafe Dori, a cosy sleek cafe perfect for savouring a fresh croissant or sipping a frothy cappuccino with a friend, or to catch up on some emails. Gautam comments “The handcrafted nature of our products is at the heart of Nappa Dori, and it was important that the location of our first boutique encompassed this, just as our products do. We are delighted to have found a home in Al Serkal Avenue, a young cultural hub whose art and design foundations perfectly reflect our own.”

With a focus on clean design aesthetics, all their accessories are impeccably made, and their vision is to become a household name in the design world, both locally and internationally.

Nappa Dori’s new line of handcrafted luxury leather trunks and lightweight suitcases come in a selection of sizes to suit any trip regardless of weight allowance (or lack of) and are ideal for your next getaway - allowing you to explore the world in style. The oh-so-chic carry-on luggage will bring extra enjoyment to your next adventure from the moment you start packing, and help you float through the airport in effortless style.

Whilst the aesthetic is minimalist, the designs do not ovrelook functionality, with modern upgrades such as 360-degree spinner wheels, expandable zippers, and interior pockets to make packing and travelling a breeze.

The sought after Steamer Trunk Collection comes in smoke grey, green and black and is made with a lightweight body and TSA-approved locks and leather straps to keep all your essentials safe. They boast a large compartment with a handwoven ikat lining to house all your travel necessities. Themain compartment is accompanied by one zipper pocket and an elasticized pocket to help keep valuables safely tucked away. The telescopic handle, 360-degree spinning wheels and hand-cut real leather corners ensure the case is effortless to use, and will withstand years of regular travel in the signature Nappa Dori style.

For smaller carry-on luggage, travellers can opt for the leather Grenadier III, which can be used as a sling bag, handbag or backpack. The pieces are strong, adaptable, and incredibly durable, with a distinctive vintage appearance that keeps everything you own intact and organised.

The Aviator is a sleek, all-black number, with eye-catching leather straps, aluminium corners and handwoven lining. It’s incredibly lightweight and so sleek you’ll want to keep it right where you can see it.

For more than 11 years Nappa Dori has continued to be a go-to brand that expresses fine individuality with accessories that make a distinct statement that whispers elegance.
