The name Dialog suggests openness, as well as the dialogue that sparks when different cultures are brought together. The brand Dialog transforms this idea into an explosion of textures and colors that is glamorous, bohemian and eclectic. It is a company that believes in bringing sustainability through creative means, such as imposing positive changes to various communities of women by providing them with sustainable incomes and an avenue to regain their confidence and sense of dignity.
The easily-learned origami trimmings, Dialog’s signature trim, not only serve as a means of generating income, but the incorporated fabrics also hold local cultural significance that reflect a colorful visual narrative of the lives involved. Dialog London also carries bag styles showcasing bright and colorful hand-woven cottons from tsunami regeneration projects in Thailand, rich embroideries from Vietnam, intricate cross-stitching from Tibetan autonomous regions as well as other upcycled fabrications and leathers from China.
This new phenomenon of combining upcycling with haute couture that aims to create sustainable employment for women with restricted opportunities in third world countries has not gone unnoticed, and has been reviewed by many across the world. Accessories Magazine’s editor awarded Dialog with ‘Best Accessories’ at a New York Fashion Week event. Furthermore, the unique Love Saori clutch, with its bright heart-shaped red clasp, was voted Editor’s Choice by Fabulous Magazine in the UK. Last but not least, the Anthropologie’s online customers gave glowing five-star reviews to the iconic bronze cross-body bag, ‘Sake’.
These bags and purses are unique collectables: each print, trim and fabrication unique and different from another; timeless gifts woven by the many that have come together to make this story possible.
Dialog London cooperates with different communities worldwide and practices sustainable development through upcycling and Fairtrade partnerships. In addition, Dialog London works with the negligible minority in society to design various artworks and develop positive changes to their dire circumstances.
