A story like no other.
A one of a kind product starts with a one-of-a-kind story. Inspired by art and the emotions it evokes, the Basu family set out to give customers something different. Products made with raw skill and unwavering passion, each infused with deep meaning and thoughtful craftsmanship. What they created was more than just a handbag: Wearable works of art that bring joy to the lives of those who carry them and to the artists who helped create them. And with that. Anuschka was born.
It all began in 1988, when the original storyteller Roma Basu, envisioned a world where art, function and fashion fused as one. She wanted a way to connect the artisan with the consumer and tell stories through beautiful artwork and flawless leather accessories. Roma's talents coupled with her husband Swapan's eye for selecting premium leather cowhide and meticulous inspection, paved the way for something truly special. Together they developed a unique production process and hand painting technique that has been taught and passed down for generations, allowing Anuschka to stay true to its name, which means "Like no other."
Made by Heads, Hearts & Hands
Anuschka's quality leather handbags and accessories evoke curiosity and unite the artisan and wearer through the power of art. From hand-painted handbags to art applied shoes, to luxury linens and luggage, each product captures the dedication and passion of the Basu family and their talented artists and craftsmen. Roma coaches designers and apprentices daily, while Bhaskar is always seeking the next best design and collaborating with the artists to bring his ideas to life. What they've created is a perfect combination of design, quality, wearability and art. Others have tried to replicate Anuschka's unique masterpieces, but fail to capture the care and precision that go into crafting an authentic Anuschka item.
Crafted with Care
For nearly 30 years, the Basu family has upheld its commitment to provide local villagers with the opportunity to earn a living using their skills. Their adherence to Fair Trade policies ensure their employees are paid higher wages than other similarly skilled workers in India, and are offered comprehensive health insurance and retirement benefits. Champions for education, the Basus promote learning for both their employees and their families.
When you purchase an Anuschka, you become part of the company's story, helping to better the lives of others.

The Artisan's Guarantee
"This artwork is not a print. The original art designed by Roma and Bhaskar was entirely handpainted by me on this item. It takes me many long hours and in some cases a few days to complete the artwork. Since I did the whole painting by hand, each piece may vary slightly from the next due to the individual brush strokes. This ensures that every piece is unique and truly like no other. I proudly stand behind the quality and finish of the painting and hope you enjoy your Anuschka purchase from many years to come."
