Designed by Anya Bumagina, BUwood handbags are described as “Luxurious handbags entirely handmade in Italy”.

We came across some BuWood pieces while browsing through the web pages of the ModaOperandi.com website. Moda Operandi has some gorgeous BuWood handbags available for pre-order.

According to the information provided on the Moda Operandi website, the bags are crafted in Milan using exotic textiles on mini canteen bodies. Their description claims “Hand selected wood sculpts each one using an innovative and unique production process that provides unsurpassed quality and style.” The bags are handmade and numbered for total exclusivity. This of course means that BuWood handbags are much too luxurious for ordinary girls.

The red bag featured below comes with a $13,560 price tag.

Buwood Shiny Alligator Leather Black Bumi 18 Top Handle Bag

It is described as a “precious, 18cm petite bag” that is a “treasure box ready to capture your dreams”.

  • Hardware of solid brass overlaid in lustrous gold

Of course those are the two we want. Maybe we’ll play the Powerball tonight and hope to win the $314 Million jackpot. That’s the only way we’ll be able to afford to buy either one.

In the words of Anya Bumagina – BuWood handbags designer …

I am possessed with perfection and creating objects that represent luxury in its truest form—from inspiration to production. This commitment to perfection is reflected in every step, every decision, every conscious choice I make toward the completion of the perfect bag. I am not fashion. I simply find immense satisfaction in high quality, thoughtfully developed concepts that can translate into intelligent luxury. I believe the confident women of the world appreciate luxurious objects that can become treasured companions on life’s journeys.

There are more affordable pieces in the Moda exclusive collection of BUwood handbags that are available for pre-order (not affordable to girls like us but to girls who can manage to shell out $2000 – $5000 for a handbag).
