Love at first sight is not a term we throw around loosely, so when we say we fell hard at the sight of these leather bags by Swarang, we’re not kidding around. No sir.
First things first—leather bags are the bomb. There’s something so luxuriously luscious about them that manages to make the most randomly put-together outfit look effortlessly chic.
Now think of the most gorgeously handcrafted leather bags, hand-painted with Madhubani art. Excuse us while we calm our beating hearts, ‘cos this is beauty we just can’t seem to handle.
The idea of Swarang is not just to create beautiful bags that you can pile on top of the rest of your bags and accessories; the folks behind the brand started this venture with the idea of bringing back the forgotten arts and crafts of India, their debut collection incorporating the 9,000-year-old art form of Madhubani.
Not just that, they’ve got some of the best regional artists ideating and creating one-of-a-kind pieces that can become serious collector’s items.
The number of pieces in the collection is limited, but every single piece is bloody beautiful. They have this handheld envelope clutch with Madhubani motif which we loved. And even their laptop sleeves with colourful dhol motifs charmed us.
Actually if we are to be honest, there’s not a single piece in their collection which we didn’t love, so it’s best you take a look at it all yourself.
