Featured Reviews on Central American Multicolor 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.
Beautiful Colors and Craftsmanship!
This purse is bright, colorful, and makes me smile with delight whenever I pick it up! The artist is a superb crafts person. The size is perfect, and I like being able to adjust the strap length or carry the bag by the small side handle.
Oh my, this bag is even more beautiful in person than it?s photo! Well made and larger than I thought, which is fine with me. Arrived very quickly and packaged with a personal note from Maria. Could not be more pleased.
