42: More Than A Handbag - An Interview w/Shivam Punjya
The National Down Syndrome Society (NDSS) gave his family hope when his sister was born, and now he’s giving it right back. Friends, meet Shivam Punjya, the founder of Behno and the brother of Nini, his younger sister with Down Syndrome. Although his beautiful NYC brand of ethically designed handbags started out with goals to increase sustainability and support workers in India, Shivam’s most recent outreach efforts include a cause that’s pretty close to our own hearts.. The Nini Collection! That’s right, he made fashionable, quality handbags accessible to his sister, Nini, and anyone else who might benefit from a rounded zipper and bigger storage space! We love functional fashion, but we love Behno’s collaboration with NDSS even more! That’s because 20% of every purchase of a ‘Nini’ tote goes straight to NDSS. Check out this extraordinary partnership and join us for an interview with it’s creator, Shivam! We’re chatting about all things related to having a sibling with Down Syndrome: perspective shifts, family dynamics, sibling rivalries, and more!
Support Behno and NDSS by purchasing the ‘Nini’ tote! 20% of sales go straight to NDSS. Shop here.
Stay tuned for a super special live event announcement from us! All you need to know right now is that you’ll want to be there, (oh and it’s happening in November!)
