In Bengal, it is that time of the year again. The monsoon is staging a reluctant retreat. In the rural hinterlands, the white bloom of kaash flowers is busy keeping their appointment with season’s clock. Professional drummers, the dhaak players, are sprucing up their gear. There is a festive hint in the air. Ma Durga is coming ... Durga Puja is just a heartbeat away now.
This festive season, beat the blues with your very own Durga Puja 2021 Limited Edition Tote Bags from the House of Sampoorna by Loksakha Welfare Society.
The thoughtfully imagined and lovingly crafted Alpana Tote Bag is one of our Durga Puja 2021 offerings from the House of Sampoorna.
Hand embroidered - Alpana Tote Bag
This pattern brings to life the Alpana, a tradition that is as inseparable from the traditions of Durga Puja as Ma Durga herself. In the olden days, the womenfolk would create intricate yet breath-taking motifs using nothing more than their imagination and powdered rice paste and colour. This is Alpana. Today, the tradition of Alpana continues in many different forms. The second pattern of the Sampoorna Durga Puja Tote Bag is a humble, yet eye-catching, tribute to the magic of Alpana.
Each Tote Bag is completely eco-friendly and keeps alive Sampoorna’s commitment to the environment. These bags are crafted from laminated jute fabric with an inner layer of cotton fabric for added durability. The hand embroideries are made with dolly thread, the handle straps are from cotton tape. A magnetic closure secures the bag’s inner compartment. In a nod to the needs of the times, each bag has a small inner chamber to hold a mobile phone or a small purse.
The bags are light-weight, easy to carry, and can be cleaned conveniently using a wet cloth. Whatever you do, just don’t tumble dry your Sampoorna Tote!
Each Durga Puja Tote Bag measures 14.5” (H)*13” (W). What cannot be measured, however, is the joy and cheer the bag will bring to you. Or your near and dear ones, should you decide to gift one.
