Anuschka Hand-Painted Leather Triple Compartment Tote Bag

When you get a taste of this vibrant hand-painted bag, you won't be able to contain yourself! Its unique twisted handles and antique-style hardware offer a vintage-inspired - and slightly zany - look. A zipper pocket and phone slip pocket take over the back side of the design, offering easy access to your most frequently used items. Throw on your favorite maxi dress and get ready to take a twirl with this bag at your side!

This incredible bag has three separate zipper compartments to keep your belongings - and therefore your mind - organized. The front one has two slip pockets, the center one features an open layout with no pockets and the back one offers a zipper pocket, slip pocket and a sewn-in key leash. A footed bottom completes this ultra-stylish (and insanely practical) look.

About the Collection
In the early 1980s, Swapan Basu and wife Roma began a hand painted accessories business. Swapan focused on creating a special painting process for handbags, and Roma designed each of the paintings for the bags. Their son, Bhaskar became involved in the family business after college, and founded Basu Corporation in 2000. Utilizing the closely guarded painting technique, the first Anuschka®  handbag was sold in September of 2000, and the company has continued to grow the business by focusing on handbags that blend art and function. Today the company has 30 artists, with designs sold around the globe.

Every Anuschka® handbag begins with carefully selected rich and supple leather crafted into fine handbags with practical features, precise handcrafted workmanship, signature lining, custom made hardware and branded zippers. The hand painted art on each of the Anuschka® bags is a feast for the eyes. The colors are a powerful element in each design, plus the wide range of abstracts, imaginary, and natural scenes depicted in muted colors of all shades and hues, transforms each handbag into an object of timeless art. The artwork is designed, and then translated one article at a time by expert craftsmen, creating one-of-a-kind works of art in every handbag.

Anuschka® bags are perfect for the woman who appreciates art, enjoys high quality handbags, fine leathers, and seeks to incorporate beauty with function.

Bhaskar BasuAbout the Guest
