Want to get rid of that terrible feeling you get when you suddenly realize that you don’t know where your wallet or purse is? Meet your next favourite brand, Issara. Designer Rosh Govindaraj created the brand out of her desire for affordable and socially conscious luxury leather goods. The designs are sleek, classic and best of all, come with the option of an embedded Trackr so you’ll never lose your valuables again.
The smart tracking technology connects to an app on your phone making accidentally leaving your purse on the bus a thing of the past. A custom two-way separation feature alerts you even before you’ve left something behind, while the GPS system lets you locate exactly where your bag is. It even has a ringer so you can follow the sound to sweet relief.
Better still, the brand’s artisans (read: the people who make your bags) are paid livable wages, work in safe environments, receive healthcare and a savings plan. We know–this is how all employment should work anyway–but when it comes to the fashion industry, that’s sadly not always the case.
Great designs? Check. Environmentally friendly leather? Check. Ethically sourced? Check. A way to never lose your bag again? Sold.
WHO IT’S FOR:
Someone who appreciates quality (and is always misplacing their wallet or bag).
