Who We Are
RISA, as a brand inspired from creative women of the past and present, was founded by sister duo Riddhima and Saloni Sayal. Hence, we leverage women artisans to create high-quality and Upcycled leather products While we design locally from the heart of Vancouver, we produce our products at our private atelier in India. We’re proud to be at the forefront of the fashion industry through the creation of handcrafted products made by our beautiful traditional women artisans.
As fondly put by one of our founders: “We grew up around bags, lots of them. We would always tweak the bags in production from the family run export house and started to experiment with design from scratch as the years went by. Upcycling the leather leftover by major fashion labels and recreating affordable luxury handbags, The love affair with leather became too serious and that’s how our label Risa was born”.
