O’Frida is an online fashion brand that makes some of the most beautiful handcrafted bags and clutches with eclectic patterns and designs and we’re totally obsessing over it. Inspired by Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter known for her beautiful self-portraits, O’Frida takes on the task of creating equally beautiful clutches and handbags. Their designs are meant to be eclectic and anything but ordinary to stand out in the market of the mass-produced bags, and they’re doing a good job at it. Started off by NIFT graduate Rini Agarwal, O’Frida is a reflection of the free-spirited women in terms of its exaggerated and bright patterns.
O’Frida uses traditional techniques like hand-dying the fabric and hand embroidering the intricate details on the bags to give the bags a very traditional yet very contemporary touch. The colours, the patterns and the amazing designs, these bags are the kind of accessories we don’t mind splurging on. It also adds value to the products knowing that these bags are all hand-stitched and have been worked on by skilled artisans to create something so beautiful. With techniques like yarn dying the fabric of the bags to embroidering on the beads, laces and creating layered patterns, there’s a lot of hard work that goes into these. Not just bags, O’Frida also offers handmade chunky jewellery and hand-dyed scarves.
O’Frida as a brand is pretty out there with its combination of chic, traditional and eclectic. Perhaps the one that gets added to the to-splurge list, this one is for anyone who’s looking to add bold statement pieces when they step out. Visit their website to shop!
