Unique bags customized in a few clicks

You'll agree with me when I say:

“It’s really hard to get a unique bag that suits your style, your needs and your design aesthetic”

You often find something that meets your need but you want it in a different color or shape. Or you find the perfect shape and color but you want changes in the artwork or design. Or you like everything aesthetically but it doesn’t fit your need. It’s quite complicated!

Or is it?

10 candid sibling testimonials that made us nostalgic. What’s yours?

I was in this well lit dedicated room, books all around, with my head down into a textbook trying to solve a complex physics problem. Suddenly she came inside the room unannounced and put a big bowl on the table. The thud of the bowl on the table completely distracted me from the complex physics problem (I guess to be honest now, I was waiting for some distraction. I was getting nowhere with the problem). Anyways, I looked into the bowl and saw some dark brown stuff. Before I could enquire what that was, she excitedly rambled about the new brownie recipe she tried and that she thought the baking attempt number 6 is sure to be top notch. Having tried the previous 5 outputs and also upsetting my stomach in the process, I was terrified within but smiling outside. The brave foodie that I was, I courageously picked up the spoon and dug it into the brownie and surprisingly with minimal effort I could cut up a small piece (phew! step 1 seemed promising). It was actually very good and I ended up eating the whole bowl. At the corner of my eye I could see the proud smirk on my sister’s face that she finally cracked it. She was elated. I was happy.

Custom Corporate Gifts - 7 gift ideas for those 7 different personalities in your office

Key projects coming to an end or the next appraisal cycle or festival season upon you and you are suddenly scouting for those usual, common custom corporate gifts out there – printed mugs, branded pens, decorative unusable items or the dreaded vouchers which get the employees nothing they like. You would have gone through Pinterest, Facebook, Amazon or some gifting websites for scores of options. You must now be tired of this process, of getting a lot of ‘feedback’ and frankly bored too. It’s the same year after year, so it’s time to try something new this time around.

Give your people the choice to create custom corporate gifts that suit them and their lifestyle. Your office is not made of all the same kind of people. Why then, should they all get the same gift? Try the Zwende way.

Do you have Travel OCD? Lose the clutter. Carry right.

Look above. It bothers me so much. I wish I could go and set it properly. Is it only me? Doesn’t this upset you? It does right?! It is so unorganized and there is so much clutter. Why! Why! Why! How can this clutter be of any use to anybody in the right time of need? Sorting through this clutter will create more clutter. And those tangled earphones and USB cables - don’t even get me started on that. And please do not dump all of it in that backpack. Please!

Heritage you can take home

Long before TVs or films were invented, Tholu Bommalata used to be one of the major forms of storytelling for the people of Andhra Pradesh. The leather puppets would be designed to look like Rama or Ravana, the mythical figures of Indian folklore. Late into the night, the puppets would dance, accompanied with the beat of traditional drums and a melodious narrative.

How often have we found ourselves in a panic over finding the perfect gift for a parent, a friend, a mentor or that special someone?

Change the way you shop for gifts and go for custom handmade gifts.

Don't you love your Customized Lifestyle?

Gone are the days when only the rich and famous could get things just right. Today, getting the perfect mix of things has made its way into our everyday lives to such an extent, that we don’t even realise how much of it is customised. 

Our days begin with the perfect cup of coffee – a medium, caramel flavoured macchiato with whipped cream, and skimmed milk.
