Usanifu Frida Khalo Bag
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, shipping can be delayed for up to 2 weeks.
And this is how one day I said to myself…how about I combine the bags with icons of famous people?
So, I decided to start with Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo Calderón, from Coyoacan, Mexico, for the art that this great painter represents.
“I paint flowers so that they never die” (“Pinto flores para que así nunca mueran”) is one of Frida
Khalo’s most famous phrases, which motivates us to use fewer plastic bags to help protect the environment: and may the flowers never die!
Art translates to “Usanifu” in Swahili.
Now finally, you will enjoy this accessory. Usanifu; it is a bag made by hand in Switzerland. With its reinforced handles, they give you the possibility of carrying the bag on your shoulder without any difficulty, or hanging it from your forearm.
Thanks to the French style of sewing, the texture of the fabric and its dimensions, Usanifu becomes your perfect accessory for everyday use. You can also carry your books or any other heavy object, your groceries, or any other of your belongings. It is an ideal gift on its own, or ca be used as gift wrapping.
In the 1980s, Frida Khalo was the perfect feminist heroine. The pattern that the Usanifu tote bag carries a minimalist portrait of the artist. I have always admired her as a woman and an artist, for her very defined personality and for her traditional Mexican clothing, with those bright colors.
“La Casa Azul” located at Calle Lodres 247, del Carmen in Coyoacán is located in one of the oldest neighborhoods in Mexico City, where the artist Magdalena Carmen Frida Khalo Calderón was born and died. Today, it is a museum where you can explore a large part of her life and her artistic works.
NatiNee Bags offers you the exclusivity of carrying a bag with authentic pictures and quotes by Frida Khalo.
“Pies para qué los quiero si tengo alas para volar”.
“Feet, why do I need them if I have wings to fly”.
Frida Khalo (1907-1954)
