"Best crossbody ever and the Llama is awesome!"

This bag is the perfect size for daily use, the meditating Llama is the cutest thing and makes me smile every time I look at it. The bag is well made with quality materials and looks like it will last a long long time. The strap is super long which is fantastic as I am tall and chubby. Finding a crossbody bag I can actually wear comfortably as a crossbody is difficult as most straps arent long enough for me. This is just perfect, the length, the size of the bag, everything. Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you!!

"Unique Belt"

This is a great belt and very unique with the inca style fabric. Everyone that sees it compliments me on the belt. I think this was a really fine purchase as it is very vibrant and well made.
