The Varanasi features a heavy duty, tangerine hemp basket weave canvas exterior and is lined with a very soft recycled polyester fleece. The Varanasi is dyed with non-toxic, low impact dyes which are formaldehyde and PBDE free.
Story behind the name
After spending 36 hrs on what should have been a 12-hour train journey we had envisaged our arrival in Varanasi would be like entering a tranquil oasis where we could relax, eat good food and replenish. The reality was we arrived in the middle of the night met by dust, noise, darkness, a thousand smells, mounds of sleeping people, animals, a near death ride in a tuk-tuk, the world’s worst sandwiches and a filthy YMCA insect infested hotel room. How in heaven we left this city thinking we had just spent our most enjoyable three days in India is a secret that we’ll leave with the Ganges.
