Here’s a good reason why Nasha’s Pinto is worth a second look. Founded by Nasha Mekraksavanich, the label isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill brand that was created to ride on Instagram trends, but rather prides itself on creating bags that have unique geometrical shapes, with the founder going as far as to establish her own workshop with a team of dedicated craftsmen just to perfect the bags.
Her latest piece is shaped after a tiffin carrier (or tingkat, as it is more commonly known in this part of the world), the humble stackable that’s was used to hold cooked food before it was transported from the kitchen to the intended party. Styled with three compartments that are ‘stacked’ on top of one another, Nasha’s Pinto is furnished with a curved top handle, which very much looks like a traditional lunch box if you place them side by side.
The main difference? You can’t exactly dissect the parts and take them apart, nor can they be unzipped individually to access the contents within. Instead, all you need to do is to flip the top up to unveil the roomy interior (much like that of a bucket bag) that will store all your contents within.
Today, the bag comes in many shapes and sizes like the Pinto Air (see-through PVC versions, from SGD340) or the Pinto 2.5 (double stack, not triple, from SGD1680), but the chicest/cutest piece has got to be the Mini Pinto (shown above), which comes in varied options like Copper (metallic calfskin) as well as bi-material combinations like Salad (a mix of calfskin and python). Measuring 17 cm high and 12 cm wide for the Mini Pinto, the bag is definitely big enough for an iPhone, along with whatever else you want stacked neatly inside. The trio above is priced from SGD1251 and can be bought online now. The even better news? Nasha is currently offering free worldwide shipping with a minimum spend of USD500.
