Love Travel Guides began in India in 2007 with a goal to enable the readers to fall in love with each destination. The guides are hand-crafted books for Luxury Vagabonds with carefully curated content showcasing the best and most authentic experiences. The simplest criteria for what gets in to the guide is: “Does this entry help you fall in love with this destination ? If yes, then it is in; if no then, it is out. Simple”.
Completely hand made in India, Love Travel Guides celebrate authentic Indian luxury and pays homage to India s rich craft legacy. The books are printed on paper hand-made in Jaipur and hand-crafted with care by local fashion designers and crafts people. The hand-loom khadi cotton book covers were developed in partnership with Delhi based fashion designer Sonam Dubal of Sanskar and are woven in Andhra Pradesh. The khadi and silk pouches were developed in partnership with Bangalore based fashion designer Sonali Sattar of Hidden Harmony, and are made from Mysore silk and khadi cotton from Andhra Pradesh.
