Carrying on the tradition of marroniquería, Mexican artisan Ricardo Hinojosa creates a handbag that is full of sophistication. He combines leather in hues of chestnut and espresso with intricate, delicately embossed floral motifs on the chestnut portions. This bag drapes over the shoulder on a strap or can be held by a handle. Opening with a magnetic snap, the bag reveals a roomy unlined interior with a side pocket for storing smaller items. Adjustable straps at the side expand the bag's size.

Just received the leather world traveler bag. It's wonderful!! The workmanship is gorgeous.


All are good except the color of the bag received was off. It is a dull brownish NOT an attractive shiny tan cow-hide as posted. I did not return the item because I wanted to support your work.

Leather tablet case, 'Black Cyberspace' I have ordered from Ricardo before and will be ordering again. His work is flawless and well designed. This bag is for my son who will use it for his electronics and books. It will be well used and most appreciated.
