Aleksandra Badura



Identity



In the year 2013, the house of BADURA was founded under the artistic intuition of creative spirit, Aleksandra Badura.



A tireless traveller and innovative thinker, Aleksandra translates both her enthusiasm for ‘Made in Italy’ and her love for the distinct identity of the raw material into a hand-made collection of beautifully finished high-end accessories. An advocate of one-of-a-kind pieces, Aleksandra quickly cultivated her passion for tailor-made, custom apparel through the influence of family tradition. Exclusivity was instilled at a young age as she looked for style inspiration from her mother and grandmother, both of whom lived by their tailored wardrobes as a true and absolute ritual.



After relocating to Rome to pursue a postgraduate master’s degree in architecture and design, Aleksandra used her expertise to later collaborate with an architecture studio managing large, international projects. Following a very successful and gratifying career in world of interior design, she decided to focus on new career paths and to form her very own company.



While developing and expanding her wealth of knowledge, she continuously refined her own concept of the term ‘luxury’ and began to utilize her acquired skills into new endeavors. Since this very day, Aleksandra passionately immerses herself into the construction and realization of luxury handbags. A great passion that has ignited curiosity ever since her teenage years.


Vaults of Dreams



Treasure-troves of memories, vaults of dreams precious like diamonds: Bags that evolve into talisman of heritage and remembrance.



Once upon a time there was a magic bag…



An indomitable spirit, a passion for innovation, a profound sense of belonging, firm determination and a smidgen of magic – this is the very unique, modern fairy tale of Aleksandra Badura, founder and creative mind of the luxury and handcrafted handbag brand BADURA. She has brought to life the world of beauty and style encapsulated in the iconic purse of her beloved grandmother, where all her family secrets and memorabilia are kept.



Each narrative element tells a tale of resplendent memories and insights that like silver waves flow into one another, tracing a path across the creative and entrepreneurial life of the Polish-born designer.


Childhood and Adolescence in Poland



Cheerful and happy. This is Aleksandra’s childhood, immersed in the beautiful colors of the Polish countryside, where life unfolds in tune with the simplicity and essential style of the rigorous Communist regime. Aleksandra walks through her early years in her homeland with no ripples of regrets, bathed in the sweetness of simple days.



While economy is booming in Europe, a brilliant tomboy girl runs wild behind the Iron Curtain discovering luscious woods and transparent ponds, learning all she can with sincere curiosity, developing her grandfather’s passion for music and her grandmother’s eye for beauty and love. Sports fascinate her and travelling with her school-mates and family makes her wanting to see more. In a world where large retail chains are not an option, Aleksandra early enough comes to appreciate the value of a ‘one-of-a-kind’ piece, the beauty of a masterfully crafted made-to-order item like no other.



This is what drives her quest for ever unique, distinctive high-end collections, where each bag is a masterpiece on its own, with a special kaleidoscope of colors. Each creation is lined in a different color and not two bags are the same. This is meant to enhance the uniqueness of every woman and the world she represents. Every single image, sound, scent, emotion from her childhood and adolescence is deeply imprinted in Aleksandra’s designer eye and keeps on feeding her creativity.


Grandma’s Bag and Tailor-Made Clothes - A New Aesthetic Approach to Fashion



Aleksandra meets the world of fashion for the first time through her grandmother's legendary black ‘doctor bag’: a much revered object she has never used. It has stayed at the bottom of her closet, guarding personal documents, old photos and letters. It is like a precious chest of old memories that Aleksandra has made into something so personal that has set the tone for her love of accessories and chests she has been buying in antique shops around the world.



Mention must be made also of the fascinating and fun-filled experience of seeing a dress come into existence, when going to a dressmaker as a child for a fitting together with the women of her family. Exceptional moments of bliss that have nurtured in her heart a passion for craftsmanship, and exclusive design.


A Rainbow of Colors



Aleksandra holds a rainbow in her soul – it is an endless source of light and joy, just like the bright yellow shade of the fishing rod she used to swing as a magic wand when playing with her friends. And yellow like the car her grandfather was able to get in exchange for the government vouchers he patiently collected through the years. But it is an intense shade of green that still lights up in her eyes, when she first wakes up every morning: it is a Spring breeze from home, a hue so rich to become a distinctive feature of her exclusive design.



Her collections talk about all the places she has lived in, travelled or just passed by - traces that come back in many amazing ways, and yet always holding the perfect balance of precious stones. BADURA bags are a pleasure to the eye and a tribute to the excellence of Italian master craftsmen and top-quality materials.


A Brand New Start - Italy and Design



At 25, right after graduation, Aleksandra moves to Italy where she lands a job with a large lighting company. It is love at first sight! She develops a passion for urban architecture and a curiosity to discover materials that can best meet today’s lifestyles. It is a search for clean, essential, lines that becomes her signature through her artistic career. Four years later, she moves to Rome, and sets up her own company, a contractor studio to develop interior design and outdoor furniture projects in the Middle East. A very successful and rewarding business, that prompts her to further explore the world of luxury.


Badura - A New Creative Adventure - Working on a Dream



Custom-made is a frame of mind, and exclusive design is a burning need. Aleksandra is passionate in her work and concentrates on producing items she herself designs. One day she finally sits down and sketches her first bag.



Everything changes. She sports her brand new bag during a business trip to Dubai, where a client of hers wants to buy it at all costs. It is a turning point in her entrepreneurial career. Aleksandra likes no hesitations and always trusts her feelings. It is time to open her treasure chest and conjure up the magic of her grandmother’s iconic purse. A new business project is born with a view to donating a feeling of wander to each and every woman who wishes to make a statement for herself.


The Badura Concept - Bags Like Diamonds



Each BADURA bag is a universe scattered with architectural gems. BADURA creations find inspiration in the world of precious stones - the rough cut of diamonds, the geometrical shapes of gems find their way into the shape, lines, and borders that characterize every BADURA bag. This is the BADURA’s signature. Her love for beauty and perfection translates into an extreme attention to detail, which is enhanced by a rigorously made-in Italy philosophy: every item is manufactured in Italy by Italian maestros. She has searched far and wide to find talented artists she could work with and she has found for herself top-quality labs in Rome and in Tuscany.



Diamond, ‘adamas’ in Greek, means indomitable, invincible, tenacious. Like diamonds, BADURA bags are meant to celebrate the inner strength of every woman. Each creation is a unique, tailored object, to cherish and to collect, thanks to its exclusive craftsmanship, the use of the finest leathers, and a refined and contemporary feel. Every part of it, every accessory is meant to meet the needs of modern, elegant demanding women.



BADURA today is a brand that represents the excellence of “Brand Italy”. It speaks of creativity, entrepreneurial proficiency and a mix of traditions that blend together to make up Aleksandra's world. BADURA is a source of great pride and satisfaction for the young Polish-born designer. It is a tribute to the efforts she has made with courage and determination to make her dream come true. But it is only the beginning. New, exciting stories are still to be told and the treasure-trove is plenty of undisclosed ones to amaze us!
