Besy eyeglasses case Ive ever owned
I am so very glad I purchased this eyeglass case. I knew when I saw it I woyld probably live it just for the lovely color and pattern. But it is a very well constructed case and my prescriptiin glasses are safe in this case. I wanted a unique well made case for my expensive eyeglasses and I am so pleased with this. If you are looking for a very sturdy as well as beautiful unique case for your valuable eyewear, please do yourself a favor and select this from this talented artisan. Im so glad I did.
Quality lasts and lasts
I have had my bamboo chenille bag for ten years or more. Still looks wonderful. The mix of colors, with a subtle translucence goes with any color I wear. I use it as a daily bag, but works well for dressier events, too. Treat yourself! You?ll love the products made from this rich, luxurious fabric.
I bought this and another similar one by the same artist (earth and sky) and I love them both. The fabric has heft and appears to be durable, and the woven straps are thick and strong. It is unlined but the fabric is thick enough to support wallet, change purse, eyeglass case, cosmetic bag. Very happy with purchase.
