If anyone knows my background, they know I am a HUGE sucker for art and design. Being interested in the architectural world since childhood has brought a whole new meaning to paying attention to detail. Now, in the wardrobe styling world I am still able to share my love for amazing details in clothing and accessories that most people might not see like I do.
And that is exactly why I am writing this blog post! I was browsing online for some fun and really creative handbags and came across Anuschka. The creativity and amazing detail on these hand-painted bags is out of this world. Ironically enough, I was instantly drawn to the bright colors and beautiful designs. The colors are so different than I would normally see on a leather handbag and I attribute that to these fantastic colors being hand mixed and painted by one artisan. It’s quite amazing!
Anuschka artisans literally use every hue and color to create masterpieces on hand cut, super supple leather. After each piece is carefully painted, they are ALL signed by a family member before being shipped out to you, the customer!
After my obvious love for the creativity that goes into each design, I was instantly drawn to Anuschka for their love of family. Anuschka bags are designed in the USA by a mother-son design team; Bhaskar and Roma. Each bag and accessories are made in a family owned workshop in India.
I had a blast shooting with 2 Anuschka bags last week and have been beyond excited to show them off to all of y’all!
Handbag – Anuschka Dreamy Dahlias Convertible Tote
The first bag is GORGEOUS!! And I obviously love it because it is grey and has the prettiest flower painted on the front! I was drawn to this bag because 1. I love the color and 2. it will go with just about everything. Since I wear more neutrals I wanted to find a painted print that I could wear with most of my classic outfits. I don’t normally wear color so this subtle pop of color on the bag was just the right amount. It pops in just the right amount of ways!
And we’re on to outfit #2!
