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.

Eye-catching and eco-sexy
Very beautiful bag; I use the main zippered compartment to store my 13 laptop (in a case in a padfolio, since the bag itself isn?t very padded) and the buttoned pocket on the outside for my iPad (also in a case). The mini zippered pocket is good for things like ID and wallet for when your pants don?t have their own pockets. I?ve taken it to job interviews and on day trips.
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.
