bought this as Christmas present for member of family. the workmanship on the bag is outstanding and the attention to detail phenomenal. arrived beautifully boxed with surprise of matching small purse. the colours and design will be appreciated as person it was bought for sews, which is one of reasons I trusted Bombus Artisanal to purchase from.
You can't really appreciate how good their products are unless you've lucky enough to have seen them in person.
This is such a creative way to reuse unwanted clothes and fabrics! I really love how a belt has been used to create the strap on the bag, and the pattern is exactly my style.
Despite it being upcycled from old/unwanted fabric, it is really high quality. The stitching is consistent and straight all throughout the bag, and the fabric is strong and durable. The bag itself doesn't look big but you can fit a surprising amount inside! I can easily carry all of my essentials without a problem.
I'm very lucky to be the proud owner of a completely unique bag! It has quickly become my go-to bag and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it. Would definitely recommend
As someone with curly hair, normal hairbands usually pull on my hair and get painfully tangled up. I've tried avoiding this by using other scrunchies but all of the ones I've used in the past snap within a week.
A friend recommended I try these Bombus Artisanal scrunchies and after wearing them I can say that they are amazing quality. They firmly hold my hair in place without any uncomfortable pulling, and the elastic is so strong I can tell these are going to last! They are really comfortable to wear.
I love the huge variation of different colours and patterns, it's hard to choose between them all so I've now bought a few different styles. This witchy one is definitely one of my favourites and suits my alt style perfectly!
By far the best hair tie I have used... Bought 3 and unlike every other hairband, these didn't wear out and loosen after a week... They're still standing strong, keeping my hair under control.
Great variety on offer too. Naturally went for Tartan, but there were plenty of designs on offer so I can mix it up 😝 I can't buy anything else now, Bombus has broken me.
I have recently been growing out my hair and needed something cute to tie my hair back when I'm working in my new garden (Yeah, lots of change!). Bombus' scrunchies are perfect! The fabric's cute and upcycled, and the elastic is strong yet kind on my hair. Other scrunchies I've had were either too loose or too tight and slipped out or pulled out some strands (ouch!), but these stay in place really well. And this is such a great deal, too!
I've been using my honeydew tote bag for several weeks now and I just love it!
The bag's material and build quality is superb and it really feels like the artisanal item it is. The long straps mean it sits comfortably and securely at my side when worn across my body, handling the weight of anything in it well while also being able to reach inside very easily one handed. As I use a walking stick I really love this feature as with previous tote bags for shopping it's a juggling act to handle everything! The bag itself is a nice size and is able to easily carry everything I need when I visit my partner; change of clothes as well as devices and chargers. The construction is so robust that while I obviously treat this luxury item with care I trust it to handle everyday use and am comfortable using it without worrying about it breaking, especially with the piece of mind of Bombus Artisanal's repair policy.
The honeydew design is absolutely lovely! The hand block printed fabric is so beautiful and you can see the personal care in making it. The light tone of the main fabric is contrasted very nicely by the deep red lining and stitching. Mine has the 70cm straps and they are the perfect length. The price reflects the quality of the materials and craftsmanship and the skill and passion of the people who made it. I'd definitely recommend this bag to anyone looking for a high quality, practical bag which is also very fashionable and aesthetically pleasing!
I love my bag! The fabric is so colourful and knowing it is handmade in India just makes it more special. I use the bag to carry around a bunch of paper (examinations) and it just sits so nicely on my shoulder and under my arm because of the long straps, and it holds the paper well because the bottom is a bit wider. I also use it for game night! It perfectly fits my DnD rule-book, dice and of course snacks.
Shipping was really fast as well, considering it had to go to the Netherlands. It was nicely packed with the personal touch I love from small businesses. 10/10 would recommend!
