What makes a bag truly special? Is it the brand name or attention to detail that makes each piece different? If the ‘iconic’ patterns of established designer bags no longer interest you, it’s time to try something new, different, and inimitable.
Qtrove is excited to present, Clovve.
Clovve is the brainchild of Minal Samar, an accomplished jewelry designer, and Arpit Samar, an established businessman with ventures in Jaipur and Udaipur. In 2015, Minal and Arpit moved to Bangalore to explore new opportunities where they established Clovve as a luxury designer brand.
The name ‘Clovve’ is drawn from ‘clove’, a flavorful spice that adds richness to any dish, much like products from Clovve that offer style, uniqueness, and functionality in all its designs. They add spice and verve to personal style and can make any ensemble effortlessly classy. To sum it all up, Clovve is all about one thing — affordable luxury.
Finding inspiration in local markets
The chic and quirky designs of Clovve’s bags come from the remotest markets in Bangalore. Unlike other brands that buy materials based on their designs, Clovve stands out for doing the exact opposite. Minal creates almost all her exquisite designs by upcycling various fabrics. That’s why no two collections at Clovve are alike. Now this is what we call exclusivity. Collecting excess materials from fabric stores and other wholesalers in the city, Minal makes the best of scraps to create never before seen handbags, wallets, and laptops bags. Creating small batches of handmade products, each collection from Clovve has just under 100 pieces, making it truly unique!
Fashion that’s sustainable and responsible
As mentioned earlier, Clovve upcycles leather, canvas, and other suitable fabrics to create sleek, functional, stylish bags. In addition to a range of stunning faux leather products, Clovve also makes genuine leather products sourced from government-approved traders and tanneries – especially important when dealing with leather. These products originate from the food industry and are safe, non-toxic, and treated with minimal chemical processes. And by principle, Clovve doesn’t use exotic leather in any product.
