It Begins with a Sketch

The creation starts with a vision, that’s captured through a sketch that becomes the essence of the design. Through a well-planned creative process, Bhaskar Basu and the team of designers finalize the art, which adorns the pure leather bag. This process is important, as the bag will be the canvas in which the talented artists pour their hearts and souls. Painting them artistically from these drawings.

After the initial shortlisting, a range of layouts are selected. These product layouts range from hobos, satchels, crossbodies, clutches, and so on. Simultaneously, the art specific to that bag layout is developed. The process is meticulously monitored and nurtured into a work of art that themes the ANUSCHKA collection.

This process takes time since each aspect of the creation must be perfect to reflect on the multiple batches that pass on to the consumer.

Selecting the Finest Leather

Once the samples are finalised, the team at ANUSCHKA carefully selects the highest quality pure leather. They source from the finest tanneries, ensuring that each hide is supple, durable, and ready to be transformed into a work of art.

The leather selection process is a crucial step since different bags require more than one type of leather. This is evident from the fact that each bag has a different feel that is achieved through the different leathers used for its manufacturing.

The Art of Hand-Painting

Once the leather is finalized, the skilled leather cutters cut pieces of the leather into the sections of the bag where the artisans are to paint.

The true magic of an ANUSCHKA bag lies in the intricate hand-painting process. Each design is painstakingly hand-painted on the leather surface, with the artists using a unique home-grown technique to bring their vision to life.

Each piece is arranged in the order or sequence of the art in accordance with the master painting. After this, the artists lay down their initial drawing on the leather, followed by the painting and then the outlines.

Each step in the sketching and coloring process is replicated exactly as it was done on the master sample. In other words, the ANUSCHKA bag might use the same number of brush strokes as would have been done on the master sample.

Stitching the Pieces Together

Once the leather is finalized, the skilled leather cutters cut pieces of the leather into the sections of the bag where the artisans are to paint.

After the painting is complete, using smart sewing techniques, fabricators meticulously stitch the pieces together, ensuring that the final product is not only visually stunning but also structurally robust, built to last.

The process is of utmost importance since a good bag structure is the backbone of the quality offering as promised by any brand. In the case of ANUSCHKA, quality is paramount. When the painted leather pieces are brought back to the workshop, a skilled fabricator assembles the pieces and adds reinforcements and a high-quality lining to make them adorable masterpieces. 

The penultimate stage of the ANUSCHKA bag-making process involves the addition of hardware, like zippers, clasps, and handles. These elements are carefully selected at the beginning, during the master sample creation. The hardware complements and enhances the overall design, adding a touch of elegance and functionality to the finished product.

As is the common theme throughout, ANUSCHKA guarantees the best quality hardware for its bags. Each individual piece is personally selected by Bhaskar Basu during the master sample creation process, so that when the ANUSCHKA bag reaches your hand, it is superior both in terms of design as well as its hardware and accessories.
