Mehtaj Zaman Ahmed, Regional Manager (North East), Hidesign said, “The North –easterners are naturally a fashionable bunch of people and leather stands as a symbol of luxury, carries character, naturalness and sustainability which reflects why HIDESIGN connects with this part of the country and its people. This is affordable luxury we are offering at the price of a non-leather bag, lasting you a good 5-6 years or even more. We have seen some customers even handing over their bags to their children, making it an evergreen classic. It’s like leather has seen through sad-happy moments, weathered with the times, building an emotional connect.”
