Anuschka Hand-Painted Leather Fold-over Hobo Handbag

"This is fun, fun art! If you like animal prints, if you like butterflies, if you like henna (that we just came up with), this bag really blends all of that in! It takes all the beautiful things that we do on different bags and it really brings it all together. It creates its own little character. There is so much chemistry between all the different kinds of art that we are doing here!" -- Anuschka designer Bhaskar Basu

Creating Anuschka Items:

Each Anuschka item starts with the individual selection of leather, and then each piece is cut by hand. From here, the item is detailed with meticulous precision. The artist's guarantee with each piece is that the artwork was designed by Roma and Bhaskar Basu, and completely hand painted without using any special technology like an air brush to create the effects and finish. The colorful artwork transforms each object into timeless art, with a wide range of patterns and rich, muted colors. Adding flair to anything you wear, your Anuschka piece complements every occasion with its exotic appearance and practical organization. You'll notice tiny marks in the leather, which are evidence of the natural characteristics of the supple leather that enhance the beauty of the product.
