Hello, my name is Connie and I am 100% addicted to handbags. I am continually on the hunt for THE perfect one! I don’t want just any ‘ole handbag I have many requirements; starting with roomy. I must have a LOT of room!! I carry not only my personal items; wallet, phone, glasses, paper, pens, more pens, and more pens. (WHY are there so many pens in my purse?) I also carry items meant to keep 3 year old Alice, completely occupied when we are out and about. Crayons (’cause ‘ya know all those pens aren’t enough writing utensils!), coloring book, wipes, raisins, fruit snacks, iPad, story book, brush, barrettes, 2 Barbie Dolls and a stuffed animal. So ROOMY is a must.
Pockets! I need pockets, one for my keys, one for my mobile phone and one for my credit card wallet. I also want a middle pocket to hold lip gloss, spare change and a million receipts that I will no doubt need; eventfully? If for nothing else, I will make my next shopping list on.
More importantly I want to make a statement with my purse. I
want NEED to have a “Oh WHERE did you get THAT bag?” Bag!! I’m giddy; because I FOUND that BAG!!! I love this bag!!! I can’t think of a handbag I’ve ever carried that has gotten this many compliments!! E-V-E-R!! The Just My Size handbag is PERFECT!!!! Inside and OUTSIDE!!
This beautiful fair trade purse combines hand-woven natural cotton colors, brown leather and brass accents to make the PERFECT handbag!!! The brown leather accents run down the sides and bottom of this bag. The adjustable belt not only adds a stylish touch to the bag, but also expands if I need to carry more items. This is a VERY ROOMY bag!! There are two inner pockets on one side; perfect to hold my keys and the other to hold my mobile phone. The inside pocket runs the full length of the purse and it’s deep AND it closes with a zipper!! The bag itself is 12.¼” high and 12.¼” wide and 5.¼” deep. The strap is 20.5″ long and 1.2″ wide. This strap does not slip off your arm! Even juggling a 3 year old and a grocery bag! The bag weighs in a little over 1.5 pounds. This bag is made of 100% cotton, leather and brass. The bag is fully lined with a cotton lining. The bag features a magnetic button closure.
The workmanship and quality of this fair trade treasure is amazing. I am beyond thrilled. Everything at NOVICA is a pleasure, from shopping to ordering, to the presentation and the purse itself I couldn’t ask for a better experience.
Opening a NOVICA box is like receiving a gift!! A hand written thank you note. A card that tells you about your item and the talented artist that created it. I was so excited over the packaging on my fair trade purse, the pretty paper and an adorable little doll nestled in the ribbon. Such a CUTE touch!!
More to love about my new purse is knowing where it came from and who designed the bag and created the bag; that has to be one of my favorite parts of shopping at NOVICA. The ‘Just My Size’ handbag was created by The Villavicencio family; they not only cultivate the cotton in several natural colors – jade, brown and ivory, or raw cotton. With NO DYES!!! The family is involved in the entire process, from growing the cotton, to weaving it and transforming it into this handbag. How amazing is that?!
What are your ‘must haves’ in a handbag? I am positive NOVICA has one that’s perfect for YOU!!
