Each Indigo fashion bag contains a Miniature Painting by Pittsburgh artist Harish Saluja.
The purse consists of a metal-plated exterior designed with a clear window to showcase the abstract artwork. The interior is vegan leather. The paintings are 3x5 inches and the bag size is 12 x 5 inches.
Since each miniature is a complete painting, it makes every bag unique, distinct from all others and non-reproducible.
Net profits from the sales are donated to non-profit organizations.
