By Hand From The Heart is a curated makers market event in Chennai, South India. UPCOMING EVENT: CHENNAI: AUGUST 3RD – 4TH,
Meet Deepa Jhadav, the founder of Sew 4 Soul. From handcrafted bags and clutches to travel wallets, Deepa makes it all at her home studio in Pune. As Deepa mentions, “Sew4soul is an attempt to bring soul into a small piece of fabric”. Without further ado, we introduce to you, the Chief of Everything at Sew4Soul, Deepa Jadhav.
A bit about yourself.
I’m Deepa Jadhav, 38 year old. I started making bags 7 years back after I quit my corporate job to look after my toddler. Ever since then, I design under my independent lable – Sew4Soul and sew my bags in my home studio.
Why is making important to you? And what is inspiring you now?
Sewing has always been a part of me. I completed my fashion designing course back in 2002. However because of a corporate job I was away from my sewing for almost a decade. However after I quit my job when I finally had time for myself, I decided to start sewing. But this time instead of dress making my heart was set on bag making. My inspiration had always been by daughter Ruhi which in English means “soul”, hence my brand name Sew4Soul.
How has your venture and designs evolved over the years?
I started Sew4Soul 6 years back with some basic designs. With time I have always tried to attempt designs and products that is unique yet practical.
What are your displaying at the By Hand, From The Heart.
I am displaying a interesting new range of totes, sling bags, utility pouches and kid bags.
Where do you get your inspiration?
I mostly draw my inspiration from functionality and practicality of a product.
