Adjustus V

In 2015, fashion designer Petra Mickalova Dumbrell fulfilled a dream to design and produce a range of unique bags made using the ancient Indian skill of handlooming.


The company is named after her craftsman grandfather, who was born in the Czech Republic in 1922 at a time when artists and designers sought to raise the status of crafts and produce modern, well-made items. 

Petra works with a skilled and passionate team of local craftspeople in Kerala, who are working under ethical standards, without child labour, in safe and hygienic conditions.


The factory complies with the government’s minimum wage requirements and remains committed to its ISO9001:200 and SA800 accreditations. 

Adjustus V's canvas designer bags are strong and durable. They come in a wide range of styles to compliment any outfit, with ergonomics and functionality being just as important as style and finishing touches.


Each bag is gifted with an Indian name, making it unique and personal.
