bunai : vintage cotton kantha purse


or make 4 interest-free payments of $17.00 AUD fortnightly with More info


Bunai is a small, family-owned and managed business in India, creating unique bags and purses using vintage textiles. Hand sourced by the Gupta family on their travels through regional India, these original hand woven fabrics convey generations of traditional dying expertise and stunning pattern making, alive with warmth and bold design. Carefully reworked into new bags and purses, a piece from this collection joyfully preserves the rich cultural heritage of these textiles and their makers.

With its brass kisslock frame and plump round shape, this purse is pleasingly sized for human hands, ideal for your essential coins, medications or lip balm. A charmingly nostalgic style with the romance of travel in every stitch, it's made from a beautiful fragment of Kantha textile.
