On the 8th of November 2023, the vibrant Bags of Ethics community, comprising brands, stylists, journalists, designers, creators, entrepreneurs, retailers, academics, sustainability experts, and members of the supply chain, gathered to joyously observe Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights.

Dr. R. Sri Ram, the visionary Founder of Bags of Ethics/Supreme Creations, and his wife, Mrs. Rajni Sriram, Co-Founder of The Wings of Hope, graciously hosted the annual celebration at the esteemed Royal Automobile Club in London.

In his opening address, Dr. Sri shared insights into the profound significance of Diwali—symbolizing light, hope, peace, and friendship. He expressed, “The sentiments of this festival could not be more fitting than at this time. We wish for communities to unite, come together, and rejoice through shared meals, illuminated lamps, and collective dance.” He also drew parallels to the Hindu epic “The Ramayana,” where Lord Rama’s triumphant return was marked by lit lamps and fireworks.

Throughout the evening, guests immersed themselves in Indian culture through delectable cuisine crafted by celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala and mesmerizing dance performances by world-renowned Kathak dancers, led by Kumar Sharma.

A captivating display showcased the craftsmanship of the Supreme Creations factory in Pondicherry, India, featuring client work for the NewGen30 campaign, the Green Tree Badge, Selfridges, and various bespoke manufacturing products like reusable bags and sustainable packaging.
