Third Culture Co Ltd, Suite 521, Coventry House, 1-3 Coventry Road, IG14QR, London, UK


Founded by Shaima Shamsi. Storytelling through wearable art. Producing slowly and consciously.

Homage by Third Culture Co takes inspiration from the ways we engaged with spaces around us. How the most popular outdoor entertainment back in the 80s and 90s across the region were humble picnics. With chai in a flask and a chattai* in the car, we placed ourselves upon the mats we laid. The memories of card games, conversations and food live on within us. The Homage bag is a tribute to those memories inspired by our nostalgia. 


*chattai; mat that is laid on the floor [Urdu]

At Third Culture Co we constantly experiment and understand the materials we choose to work with. For Homage we used recycled plastic woven on a pitt loom by hand in a rurual community in India tackling waste management proactively. Each panel of the bag has been made to order. 


The circular brass handles of the bag reflect on the circle of life and have also been made handmade by artisans in India.
