How is Anuschka different from any other hand painted accessories in the market?

Anuschka is the only family owned, designed, and ethically produced hand-painted brand. We offer original artwork and unrivaled quality at an incredible value. We are the premier, original hand painted brand of hand-painted accessories available at select boutiques and shoe stores across 20 countries. Like every trend setting brand, we have our imitators, but we can assure you that our product speaks for itself as it has for more than 30 years. Each Anuschka is hand-cut and crafted from fine leather, then individually painted, not by professional artists, but by young men and women who have been trained by us and enjoy the benefits of our fair-trade policies. High grade leather, signature lining, branded hardware, original art, years of experience, and excellent quality distinguish us from the counterfeits. Even today, a family member does a final check of every bag before hand-signing it. Click here to learn more about the Anuschka Story.

Where and how are the Anuschka handbags made?

Anuschka bags are designed in USA by Bhaskar Basu. Bhaskar was taught by his mother, Roma, who continues to guide him today. They are then made in the family owned and operated workshop in India. Every Anuschka leather product starts with hand cutting the top grain leather and selecting the best pieces. Traditional crafters who have learned the trade from generations before them use old school techniques to create tailor made pieces. Every handbag goes through multiple stages of inspection by our quality team to ensure that the art is perfect. A family member does a final review of every bag before it is hand signed and packed.

What type of leather is used to create an Anuschka product?

Anuschka handbags and wallets are crafted from high-quality, soft top-grain nappa leather that has been specially treated to function like a canvas for the distinctive Anuschka art designs. This type of leather is known for its durability and suppleness, making it ideal for creating beautiful, long-lasting accessories. Click here to learn more.

What is Vegetable Tanning?

Vegetable tanning is an intricate, traditional method of tanning leather dating back to approximately 6000 BC. It’s an organic method relying on natural vegetable tannins from bark and other plant tissues. Vegetable tanning is a time-consuming process requiring highly skilled craftsmen. This tanning is better for our environment and allows us to explore new forms of wearable art by incorporating paintings and tooling along with our classic hand paintings.  The resulting collection is a line of more structured leather bags with specially designed artwork.
