Ladies, Get Whimsical Handbags From O'Frida To Channel Your Inner Diva

Ten-Second Takeaway

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.

For The Love Of Frida

Inspired from 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. They 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 patters.

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 a very contemporary touch. Though currently they only have their Facebook and Instagram page {and the occasional pop-up they feature at in Mumbai}, they are soon coming out with a website for you to place orders. Up until then, you can reach out to them on Facebook, or mail them at ofridabags@gmail.com for placing an order or inquiring about a beautiful bag that caught your attention.

What We love

The colours,the patterns and the amazing desings, 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 pasterns, there’s a lot of hard work that goes into these.

We’re loving the box eye clutch {INR 6,800}, and the black sling bag with metallic eye patchwork layered with beads and more. The bags and the clutches definitely fall on the higher end of pricing, however we’re thinking we’d definitely splurge on them {perhaps in the beginning of the month}. Not just bags, O’Frida also offers handmade chunky jewellery and hand dyed scarves.

So, We're Saying...

O’Frida as a brand is 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.
