Surprisingly, this bag is very simple, just like your vegetable bag looks, exactly the same. And such bags are available in the market at very cheap and low prices. But this luxury brand is selling this bag for lakhs.
The price of the Barbs Large East-West Shopper Bag in Blue Shade is US$ 2,090 or approximately Rs. 1,53,608 on Balenciaga’s website. The rectangle-shaped bag features check prints in blue, white and red, and we bet it will remind you of the grocery bags you often take to the market.
An Instagram user named Harsh saw the bag on Balenciaga’s website and posted a screenshot of it, with the caption, “Balenciaga selling ‘Pishvi’ for US$2000, never thought I’d ever see it.” Ek Pishvi, is a Marathi word and translates to a bag in English.
Saharsh said in his post, “Tag a Marathi friend and ask him what is Pishvi.”
As soon as the post went viral, social media users gave many reactions in the comment section. Many agreed that the bag actually resembled Pishvi while others said that their mothers had a better collection of such bags.
