Featured Reviews on Central American Brown Cotton Handbags
The cosmetic case is very well made. The only thing is that the colors are much darker then shown on my computer screen. The color is more of an orange and beige. Not at all rose as stated in the description. It is still a very nice cosmetic case but was a bit disappointed in the color that is on the design area of the cosmetic case. The zipper is a very sturdy one. Still very pleased with my purchase. The artisan did excellent work. Would recommend and buy from again.
Very trendy !
It is so beautiful. The craftmanship is gorgeous! I love using this as my traveling bag. I have received many compliments. I make sure to advertise where I purchased.
I LOVE this!
Mirian has out done herself. This is not only beautiful (the pictures dont do it justice), but it is crafted wonderfully as well. You can believe its beauty until you see it in person an touch it. Thank you for sharing your talents with others Mirian. Cathy
