Your search for handmade bags and accessories ends with AsalKaar’s range of handcrafted, innovative products made by rural artisans of West Bengal. Zainab’s products are an amazing blend of traditional and contemporary styles. She aims to make the rustic charm and beauty of the old art forms a part of our modern and conventional lifestyles and how!
AsalKaar offers everything from notepads, jewellery boxes and bags (of various shapes and sizes) to spectacle cases, ring boxes and toilet bags. Want to add your personal touch with a name or initials? They have an embossed leather range that includes iPad covers, passport covers, wallets, card holders and key rings.
All the products are either hand-embroidered or have block printing and hand weaving done on them. We love the bags with kantha work. We spotted a bright clutch in shades of red made with raw silk with dainty embroidery work and leather piping finish with a bit of accessorising done on the edges.
Watch out for their handcrafted stationery range - wallets, pen holders, pencil bags and more. We loved their fabric and paper-bound journals and notepads made by a couple who live in a makeshift kachcha room in rural Bengal. Check out the hand appliqued wall clock that comes with safe and detachable cloth toys that we're sure your kids will love. Make learning a little more fun for them by opting for the wall hanging made using cotton that's got all the English alphabet written on it along with a toy tucked behind it to help them remember better.
AsalKaar's collection makes for great gifting options too. The bags start at INR 750 and go up to INR 1,250. All her other products start at INR 250.
