The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the clouds are moving across the Indian Ocean.
The temperature in Mumbai is around 35 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), and the humidity is around 90%.
It’s a typical Mumbai summer.
The city is the home to some of the world’s largest textile manufacturers, but its most famous and iconic name in the textile industry is no longer the same as it used to be: Angelus.
Since 1894, the brand has been synonymous with Indian leather goods and, more recently, with the creation of the first fully-made, authentic, leather-tanned Indian model for the United States.
The company, which makes a variety of Indian leather products, was founded by a group of Italian men who were looking for a better way to produce leather goods for a market that was dominated by Chinese and American manufacturers.
Their first product was the Angelus Model F. Since then, the company has grown from a small business to an international brand with over 4,000 employees, and it has expanded its production lines to include more countries and countries of the Indian subcontinent.
With the success of its India operations, the Angeluses has grown into a luxury line that sells to high-end clients, but has also grown to include a number of popular Indian brands, including Nurturing, Lattes, and Otsuka.
Today, the label is worth $100 million.
