Simplicty & singularity

Sonika Studio creates timelessly elegant, minimalist handcrafted bags.

Manifesto

More than a bag, a heritage

The KRAMABAGS collection pays tribute to the Krama (Khmer: ក្រមា), a checkered cotton fabric traditionally worn in Cambodia. The bags' functional design plays with the codes of leather goods, shaping the Krama into modern uses.

Design & Tradition

Each collection is inspired by a know-how. The first Aya collection showcased Japanese craftsmanship, this second collection explores the handweaving techniques of Cambodia.

Commitments

Slow design

We stand for a slow approach and work towards a more responsible consumption. 

From the choice of leathers to metal fittings, everything has been designed so that Sonika Studio bags stand  time and keep you company on your adventures.

We choose to manufacture our products in a family workshop in Hungary. Their expertise and reputations are well established in the fashion world of leather goods and accessories.

Commitments

Hand-woven Krama becomes water-repellent cotton

100% Cambodian, Krama weaving is part of provincial culture. It is a task that takes time and requires patience and thoroughness. It takes at least eight hours to weave 1.70m of Krama.

With respect to the original Krama manufacturing process, the fabric has been protected and strengthened to be more durable.

4 colours satisfy all tastes

All five models are available in four colors. Due to handcrafting, these fabrics are unique, the colors of the threads may vary slightly.

The leathers of our bags come from Italian tanneries. The quality of their leather assures durability and gives extraordinary tangible and visual sensations for our bags.

Solidarity-led vision

The KRAMABAGS is a solidarity project with cultural and economic vision. The collection supports the local crafts that support the economy of several regions of Cambodia.

It encourages good production practices and companies that value and protect both individuals and their know-how. It contributes to the influence of a part of Cambodian history, the krama.
