About Anuschka Anuschka /an-ush-ka / n. like no other.

paint handbags by hand, individually and in large quan es to meet market demand, Roma Basu saw the need to do things differently.

HandcraŌed. One Story at a Time. Anuschka™ is a premium brand of hand painted accessories. And yet, each Anuschka crea on is so much more than merely an accessory. It is a story. Each Anuschka accessory is unique. It is rich in design, form and possibili es. Fiery bursts of tropical carna ons bring hot summer gardens to life in a hand-painted hobo. Regal peacocks in a feathered bloom of colors. Birds of paradise basking amidst protea,anthuriums and orchids in the glow of a Hawaiian twilight. The lazy innocence of pansies against the backdrop of a wilderness safari. These are just a sma ering of images. Moments in me. Flights of fancy. These are Anuschka stories that are born in the imagina ons of our ar s c visionaries. And me culously translated into exquisite hand-painted collec bles by our skilled ar sans. So that you can own a prized piece of handcra ed storytelling. Some may call it an accessory. A tote. A wallet. A lug-it-everywhere satchel. But you’ll always know it’s so much more. The Storytellers Like all good stories, the tale of Anuschka starts once-upon-a- me, with just an idea. A vision. A dream cherished by founders Swapan and Roma Basu. A yearning to fuse art and func on. A determina on to use art, design and enterprise to empower and upli cra smen. Since the late 80s, Swapan Basu and his wife Roma have been designing hand-painted Anuschka crea ons, con nuously evolving the art and produc on process, while always preserving the integrity of the brand. The unique handcra ed luxury that is the we and warp of each Anuschka product. For over 25 years, Anuschka has remained the only family owned, designed, manufactured and distributed one-of-a-kind hand painted collec on at select bou ques across the world. At the outset, Roma started designing hand painted bags while evolving the produc on process and refining the pain ng methodology. Today, it remains a closely guarded family tradi on. An Anuschka crea on isn’t born in a faceless factory churning out thousands of iden cal monotone bags every day. The makers con nue to work as a family. Even today, Roma and Swapan are in the workshop every day, overseeing the produc on and ensuring that every Anuschka that leaves the workshop furthers the integrity of the brand. Carrying it Forward Swapan and Roma’s son, Bhaskar Basu, joined the family business over a decade ago and con nues to bring the same passion and commitment to the family tradi on. Having spent many summers working with his parents, he grew up watching his mother design and train ar sans and his father select the leathers and coordinate produc on. Armed with a degree in Business Administra on from Boston University, Bhaskar was instrumental in taking the brand interna onal and founding The Basu Group Inc, USA in 2000. Since then, catalyzed by Bhaskar’s keen understanding of local and interna onal fashion trends, the brand has taken giant strides in growing its interna onal footprint. Today, Anuschka crea ons are being individually hand painted by over a hundred highly skilled ar sans working under Roma and Bhaskar’s guidance. These unique crea ons can be found in bou ques and luxury retail outposts in over two dozen countries. Luxury with a Conscience Even in the throes of rapid global expansion, Anuschka has remained true to its core values and is dedicated to employing cra smen and ar sans who would otherwise grapple with unemployment and economic hardship. From the days of Anuschka’s infancy, the Basu family was determined to find the most skilled ar sans to paint their designs on the handbags. They recognized the improbability of finding a professional ar st who’d be willing to spend hours in a factory pain ng the same design over and over again. In search of talented ar sans to

126

So, she took a leap of faith. Roma hired unemployed and economically challenged young adults, armed with a basic sense of art and a keen eagerness to learn the trade. Roma personally taught them the intricacies of pain ng on leather in the family’s workshop. Over the years, by becoming a part of the Anuschka family, these skills empowered them to earn an honest living and provide for their families. Changing Lives: Kaushik’s Story Kaushik was 22 when he started working at the Anuschka workshop in the early 90s. Kaushik lived in a nondescript village on the fringes of the bustling metropolis that housed Anuschka’s workshop. He made a living as a day laborer, fi nding odd jobs and frequently working in construc on or on the ny family farm. He made very li le money despite clocking in long hours of staggering labor. His village didn’t have electricity. The en re village shared one television that they would operate on a huge ba ery. Every four weeks they would take the ba ery to a nearby town for recharging.
