Still inspired by a vision to bridge the gap between the traditional and contemporary, the Gugu 2016 Collection kicks off with three boldly-made backpacks. Now with more weaves and imaginative designs, the 2016 Collection is Gugu’s biggest yet.

Among the innovations made is the seamless inclusion of the Buhi Weave, which is made from upcycled cotton scraps. Virtually as strong as machine-made cotton canvas or twill, the Buhi Weave is one of the best alternatives to synthetic fabric given its eco-friendly background. That along with the subtle improvements to existing bag features, the new collection is now better suited for a more diverse lifestyle.
By collaborating with different weaving communities, veteran bag-makers, and visual artists, Gugu was able to create collection that perfectly encapsulates the Traditional X Contemporary mantra.
The Gugu 2016 Collection is now available in stockists and the Gugu Online Store.
