Vakaro Leather Bags – Review and 40% discount for BI followers!

20 May

Vakaro

The new face of leather

Leather is commonly being featured by many designers like Proenza Shouler and Mary Katrantzou, to name a couple on the runway this year. The trendiest are sporting leather prints and textures on clothes, shoes, accessories and bags.

Bringing you the 2013 leather trend at a more affordable price in the form of bags, wallets and clutches is an online store I was thrilled to find – Vakaro. This store has invigorated my senses with its collection and my emotional quotient with its fair trade policy.

What I like about Vakaro bags

  • Every bag is hand painted, which adds a special personal touch to their line.
  • Their designs are unique and unlike any I have seen.
  • The bags burst with vibrant designs in natural and abstract forms that transform them into pieces of art. In addition, I like that each bag has a name.
  • Vakaro gets its inspiration from the runway and nature and is designed for women who appreciate unique designs and style.
  • They ship internationally, if you shop online.
  • They have stores in India, Slovakia, Canada and Australia.
  • Their site includes prices in INR and USD.

Why I admire Vakaro

  • Vakaro chooses artisans from the mob of economically challenged young adults with artistic talents. Vakaro then trains and shapes the artisans into creating the skilled masterpieces now being sold. Not only did they find artists with the right skills, but they also contributed towards creating opportunities for the less privileged.
  • Vakaro follows a fair trade policy and believes that every bag it sells, takes its artisans a step closer to building better lives for themselves.
  • Their fair trade policy ensures their workers are paid more than similar skilled workers in other industries. They also offer them, including their families, health insurance and retirement benefits.
  • Vakaro says, “The artisans are happy to be able to afford the simple things that we take for granted- to have electricity in their homes, to send their children to school and to save for their retirement.” “We are happy that we are able to make a difference to so many lives and give back to the community which has helped us reach this far.”

What Vakaro is offering Beauty Informer readers!

Now, for the fun part – Vakaro has kindly offered to give you a flat 40% discount off any item you buy from their online store.

Visit their store if you love fashionable, trendy, and unique bags, clutches or wallets that will definitely make heads turn. I could hang most of them on a wall quite frankly, and admire their beauty 🙂
