PRODUCT DETAILS

Who is Anuschka?

Anuschka is Roma’s creation. She loved the name Anuschka, but she had already named her three children Bhaskar, Radhika and Priyanka. When she decided to share her love for art through handbags, her newest baby became Anuschka which means “like no other.” 

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 over 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 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. Anuschka-trained artisans sketch and individually hand-paint every piece. 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 made of soft top-grain nappa leather which is specially treated to work like a canvas for unique Anuschka art. Click here to learn more.
