Featured Reviews on Central American Hand Woven 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.

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.
Light weight, versatile bag
I travel a lot and carrying a leather bag can get very heavy at times. This bag is beautiful! I love the color and the design! It is well constructed and has 3 zippered compartments. The strap adjusts allowing the bag to be carried cross body or over the shoulder. Overall. the bag allows for maximum versatility.
