But we know many brands that provide stylishly quality leather products, so what makes Gootipa stand out? Keep reading and learn about our journey toward becoming an impactful social enterprise. 

What Makes Gootipa Stand Out

In 2016, we took our first steps toward producing quality leather goods. It was a leap of faith that paid off when demand from online shoppers skyrocketed.

As a woman-owned business and one of Bangladesh’s leading manufacturers of handcrafted leather goods, we combine traditional craftsmanship and culture with modern production techniques. Taslima Miji, the founder of Gootipa, says that it was not only the product that had to make the impression but the emotion that went into creating it. This was the tipping point for the boom in the publicity of local products. The public reaction has been overwhelming. She attributes this change to today’s demand for quality products because most consumers got accustomed to imported bags that provide better options.

Gootipa prides itself on its sustainably sourced quality leather and attention to detail in each handmade product. The company also stays on top of current trends in the fashion industry, constantly re-designing to appeal to a wide range of customers. 

Gootipa is a local option in a market saturated with imported bags that have embraced culture, sustainability, and craftsmanship.

Additionally, the company offers a personalised customer experience, making the shopping process seamless and enjoyable, making Gootipa a top choice for those looking for unique, well-made leather bags.

The company sources its woodfrom sustainably managed forests. It uses non-toxic, eco-friendly dyes and finishes on all products. Gootipa also ensures a safe and sustainable working environment for all employees at their production facilities. They ensure that their products are not emotionless but a notch higher that carries emotion and culture.

Team Gootipa makes all these possible with talented individuals passionate about creating unique and functional pieces because of our ethos – staying on top of current trends while staying true to our signature aesthetic.

By consistently delivering exceptional products and upholding our credos, we confidently stand strong in the test of time in the leather bag industry. We want to create a utopia for leather goods that shows creation’s quality and emotion.
