This bag bibi has captured Indian grandeur and royalty onto bags. A riot of Indian colours and sensibilities are portrayed with the use of mediums like wood carving, marble inlay, brass, copper and silver engravings, the use of ‘kinkhabs’, ‘jadau’, ‘kundan’, semi-precious stones with extremely rich embroidery.
Meera Mahadevia is a Mumbai based accessory designer. Qualified as textile designer, Meera in her handcrafted bags uses exquisite texture like silk, jamewar, zari borders, organza, velvet inter woven with multiple layers. Her accessory line also makes shoes and belts and more recently sarees.
Her ornate bags have come to be considered as heirloom pieces and were displayed at Asian Civilization Museum Gallery, Singapore and at the Newark Museum Gallery , USA as pieces of creative art.

i am nodding and saying-yes, I too don’t do fashion related things unless coceptual or almost art! A very warm welcome Sarah!
What a gorgeous post! The only thing fashion related that captures my interest and my money are purses! I love them. These are some amazing examples of usable art.
