Since all the bags are hand crafted using traditional hand painted work , if you see certain slubs on the fabric or smudge of color around hand block work, it is because of the very nature of the handcrafted process. These imperfections/variations do not compromise the aesthetics or functionality of the handbag and are hallmark of handmade work
