Bodhi Handbags SS09 Collection

Bodhi is an amazing handbag collection featuring materials such as Italian leather, lamb, crushed patent, and glitter suede in fascinating new silhouettes as well as unique takes on the clutch, hobo, satchel, tote, and messenger.  The core collection ranges between $300 and $1,000 and the custom collection between $500 and $5,000 at retail.Owner and entrepreneur Angela Han, to celebrate spirituality in her everyday business ventures, decided to name her company Bodhi, which means awakening.  With such an unforced Eastern spirituality embedded in the name of the brand, Janus allotted mantras to each different style.  With fifty styles in all, enlightening mantras such as, “Peace comes from within, do not seek it without” and “With our thoughts we make our world” are stitched into every hand-made bag.

I love the vintage feel of the designs and the premium leathers used to make these bags. Bodhi is for the sophisticated urban gal who is not label but style obsessed.
