Alex and Karen of Baba Studio Prague at ArtFire have created bohemian tarot-inspired handbags and art. Carrying your inspirational image with you, these lightly-padded bags are a great size for basics like change, lipstick and keys. They also make for brilliant travel bags to hold important documents securely.

The pieces are esoterically thought-provoking with very clear-speaking imagery. The bohemian gothic aesthetic is particularly good for considering the more hidden sides of relationships and personalities.

Implications - The dark and artistically alluring collection of handbags tap into other worlds, and wearing them is intended to be a spiritual experience. Inspired by the iconic horror of the Victorian era, the designers at Baba see Gothic as elegant and beautiful and seek to revive the patterns of this period.
