Merci Shop

About Us

We are an NGO led by a group of volunteers with a mission to create India’s first social brand – Merci, Compassion through fashion.

We have two key objectives –

  • Promote high quality, trendy non leather alternatives. It is disturbing to realize that 10,000 animals are brutally slaughtered every five minutes for their skin, worse than being in a Hitler concentration camp!
  • Redeploy 100% of profit from the initiative towards social causes (HEAL i.e. Health, Education, Environment, Animal Welfare & Livelihood)

Our current product offering is focused on ladies handbags, totes, clutches, wallets though we will be soon expanding our range to cover wallets / belts for men, footwear & travel segment.

Following are the NGOs we have identified and supported so far:

We are a non-profit making company incorporated in 2011, under section 25 of the Indian Companies Act, 1956. Thus, we are not permitted to pay dividend to shareholders nor remunerate the directors. Head quartered out of Chennai, this is a humble service oriented effort to innovatively contribute back to society by building a true social brand.
Well, we request well wishers to provide us with interest free capital for a period of two years. We have received reasonable support until now. Some contribute in kind – for instance an industrialist has given us rent free premises in Mumbai and we now have a small office there as well.
Our journey is currently powered by four volunteers (core team) supported by multiple well wishers. Please refer to the Catalysts. We also have an advisory board of seasoned professionals.

Apart from this website, we are live on
