Nappa Dori, the Indian luxury leather goods brand, has officially opened its doors in London’s West End village of Seven Dials. Located at 15 Monmouth Street, the two-storey, 1400 sq ft boutique marks the first European venture for the brand.

Nappa Dori’s debut for the UK and Europe alike, the Seven Dials boutique will incorporate the brand’s café concept Café Dori, as featured at the Indian flagship. The café will provide a "relaxing and authentic ambience for visitors to enjoy", serving traditional beverages such as chai tea.

Addy Williams, Senior Retail Portfolio Manager at Shaftesbury, said: “Nappa Dori is an exciting addition to the international imprint amongst Seven Dials’ curated mix of tenants.

“This opening reflects the increase in brands selecting this unique West End destination for debut UK and European stores, following in the footsteps of leading brands such as Away and Beast. With its specialist product range and immersive café component, Nappa Dori adds a great new dimension to our retail line-up.”

Gautam Sinha, Founder of Nappa Dori, added: “The high volume of tourists and locals who frequent the stylish streets of Seven Dials made it the obvious choice for our first UK and European venture.

“After seeing so much success across our Indian portfolio, embarking upon this new market is a natural next step and has always been a key goal for our business. The unique community of Seven Dials is the perfect location for us to start this adventure.”

Nappa Dori was founded in Delhi by designer Gautam Sinha with inspiration drawn from the history, mysticism and vibrancy of India. The brand specialises in handcrafted bags and luggage, as well as accessories, stationery and homeware.

Since launching in 2010, Nappa Dori has opened seven successful locations across India and a destination store in the Maldives, as well as launching major collaborations with like- minded brands including Kiehl’s, Qatar Airways and Chivas Regal.
