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.
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.
My Favorite Purse!
I was delighted to receive this lovely purse. Im very particular about the features that I want in a purse. This has them all! The straps are the right length, it has a top zipper for security, a small zip pocket on the inside, and a large deep pocket on the front of the purse with an adorable tassel. It feels wonderful to the touch -- so soft. Very roomy, too. The colors (blue and purple) are gorgeous. I used it for the first time today and got lots of compliments on it.
