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 styles sold around the globe. 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.

Over time, the family expanded their designs to include bedding and more. The art on each of Anuschka piece 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 style into an object of timeless art.

Anuschka is perfect for one who appreciates art, enjoys high quality and seeks to incorporate beauty with function.

Bhaskar BasuAbout the Guest
