About the Company / Brand:


Zwende is an on-demand guided customization platform for home decor products and fashion accessories. The platform offers a curated repository of designs which the users can select from and apply to a variety of products – the end product can be visualized in real time 3D. All products are handcrafted with the intent of promoting and ensuring sustainability of local art and craft forms from across the world.

You can know more about how Zwende works here.

The name Zwende is inspired from the Spanish word ‘duende’ which means having soul, a heightened state of emotion, expression and authenticity. This word has no parallel in any other language because of its complex meaning and it perfectly captures what we do and what we stand for. When you customize a product on our platform, you essentially add a little more of you and therefore a soul to the product, unleashing your creativity and expressing yourself in the process. Add a zing to the word duende and you have “Zwende”.


We currently have 3 product categories - lampshades, bags and iPad Sleeves. We will be adding loads of other categories soon.... keep coming back...

We currently have 2 bag styles - Round Bag and Sling Clutch. Both of these are sling/shoulder bags. View the outline designs here and a few sample ready products here .

Care instructions vary by product. You can access this in the “Style & Care” tab in the Product Details Page. To view our collection click here .



You can find step by step instructions on how to use the customizer on the How It works page. For ease of navigation, a step-by-step walkthrough is also available when you land on the customizer page.



The platform works on real-time pricing depending on the products and designs selected. We have a base price for each product. This price can increase depending on the designs chosen. As expected, textures which are intricate or colorful, and therefore require more time and effort from the artisan, are priced higher compared to simpler, mono-tone designs - we are all about rewarding artisans for their skills and efforts.

As you customize a product on the Zwende designer tool, you can view the real-time price on the top right part of the customizer page.

Guided Customization


Our platform is intelligent where we only show aesthetically compatible designs for various parts of a product. Once you have selected a design for the first part, only relevant or compatible designs are made available for the second part. This ensures that whatever you design always looks good!

That being said, we would be very excited to guide you through the design process and discuss what would look good. Pick up the phone and call us. Alternately, you can reach out to us via other means mentioned in the Contact Us page - https://www.zwende.com/contact.
