This purse is so well-suited to my persona in many ways.

As a creative person, Im inspired by the actual how-to in putting the wrappers together. And as a woman who has championed womens financial independence through micro-credit systems, its heartening to know that my purchase will make another life a wee bit better. Even though this was not a gift, it was a gift to me and I loved the packaging - recycled paper and the small figurine in woven in those traditional glorious fibers.
A wonderful bag!!
So glad I bought this bag. Perfect for everyday usage. The phone pocket could be a bit longer and down from the zipper. Will Open the bottom seam to let it slide down.
