"High Value!!!"

The "Free Spirit" Leather Messenger Bag arrived yesterday and was packaged and gift wrapped with loving care. The bag is beautifully handcrafted and larger than we imagined. We love its diversity---able to go from a backpack to an over the shoulder bag. It's very stylish and we'd recommend the bag to anyone who wants a high quality work of art. Thank You Señor Hinojosa for your artistry!

"High quality - Excellent craftsmanship"

I bought this for my husband for Christmas. It is a very sturdy bag - perfect for his small lap-top and books for teaching. This bag will last many years.

"My husband uses it every day!"

I bought this as a replacement for my husband's leather satchel, which was getting beat up, and with the long hip strap, he was always banging it into things. He's gotten into writing lately, and he uses this bag as his primary transport for his tablet and notes when he goes to writing meetups. He loves it! it's sturdy, he loves the back-pack style straps, and the separate pockets for everything.

"My new go to BAG!"

My bag is more spacious than I thought it would be, and that's a plus! Great craftsmanship. I used Leather Honey to deepen the color.

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.
