Risa In South Africa

Accessorising is the fun part of any outfit. Having beautiful shoes and handbags can update a look and take it from average to stylish, very quickly.

I was introduced recently to Blink Accessories, an online store selling genuine leather handbags. Bronwyn is the owner of Blink Accessories and she is officially the exclusive supplier in South Africa, for the international brand called Risa – handcrafted genuine leather handbags.

Risa is an Indian brand with a presence in America, Europe and now South Africa (Yay!)

It’s the brain child of sisters Riddhima and Saloni Sayal, who have a vision of redefining couture in the world of accessories with everyday luxury for the everyday fashionista.

Their design philosophy is contemporary chic. Each piece is created by specialist craftsmen at an in-house tannery. Modern production techniques are used with traditional skills like embossing, weaving and hand-tooling. This results in handcrafted products and showcases timeless and intricate designs, while still ensuring the highest levels of quality for bags that last a lifetime.

The reason I fell in love with these bags and wanted to bring them to SA is because of the variety, colours, different textures and techniques used. ~ Bronwyn Klink

The range is beautiful, high quality and has everything from gorgeous clutch bags, totes and shoppers, travel bags and even travel bags for men. Sox has been eyeing out this bag for himself.

I’d like to  introduce you to 2 beautiful leather bags.

  1. The Risa Blush Shopper.


2. The Risa Beluga Spangle Clutch.


Let’s look at them closely.

The blush shopper is soft and the perfect size to carry everything you need. It has a removable leather strap binder that clips on and off, so you can have the straps together, as seen in the picture below, or you can unclip it and have 2 separate straps


I love that it zips up, so you never have to worry about anything falling out…


Inside there is a deep pocket and 2 pouches for lipsticks or a cellphone.


It’s price is R1990,00, but it’s currently on sale for R1390,00.

Now for the Risa Beluga Spangle Clutch.

This clutch is a great size to carry everything you need for an evening. It’s not too big and it’s not too small – it’s the Goldilocks porridge of clutches – “just right.”

I love the soft black leather with the gold sequins and beads and ever so slight purplish sequins that pick up various colours. This is versatile because it can be accessorised with silver and gold.


Inside it has a soft suede lining and a zip pocket.



The exciting news is that I have one of these bags to giveaway!

  1. Leave me a comment below stating which handbag you would love to win – the Blush Shopper or the Beluga Clutch.
