Inspiration: Author Murasaki Shikibu was the writer of what is known to be the first modern novel, The Tale of Genji. She was born in Japan for over a thousand years ago. The Shikibu bag is the most female Bukvy item with room for lip-gloss, passport, pen, keys – it even contains a small mirror. It is also made for all of us who loves literature – it actually fits a mini paperback!


The Stockholm based company Bukvy was founded by Joanna Bark and Elena Ekström in 2015. It started out with an idea of the ultimate bag. One bag in many forms, evolving as life does. Two friends with jobs on the run, living apart relationships, nights out, many activities in one day and too many things to carry. Two friends with bags,
rucksacks, totes and clutches to fit in their daily belongings: computer, sketch block, wallet, lunch box, gym clothes, keys, books, snacks, glasses, phone, clothes and so on. Knowing eachother already as kids, we dreamed about making th the ultimate escape and survival bag. It needed to float, contain milkshake, fit life in space and hopefully a best friend. Today our dreams are still big but in new ways. From what started out as a longing to be on the run, a desire to be free and the satisfaction of knowing where your belongings are ended up in a life project.
It has taken hours of construction, craftsmanship, discussions and testing to get to the final result and it is with great pride we are giving you our ultimate bag – the Bukvy Bag. Our first bag is made in Spain by genuine  calf leather and goat suede. It is a small but focused
collection made to simplify and organize the daily life of urban people through function and elegance.

HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR BUKVY
Leather is a living material and it needs to be treated with love. All Bukvy products are made of European high quality calf leather and goat suede. They will age nicely as long as you take good care of them, especially suede needs some extra attention.

1. A tip to keep in mind: before spraying, we strongly recommend brushing with a suede brush before and after you spray your Bukvy.

2. Seal your Bukvy. Apply a waterproofing spray to protect it from stains and water. It will help repel dirt and stop stains before they start.

3. Never clean suede with water! This might affect both color and texture.

4. You need to treat your Bukvy every couple months for it to age beautifully.

5. There are many  advice on how to remove stains from leather and suede but we highly recommend that you bring your Bukvy to a professional if it gets badly stained.
