        Comments about Paraguayan Hand-tooled Leather Travel Tote Bag:

        I like that I can use this bag as either a purse or a travel bag, office tote bag, etc. It is soft, pliable and not too big that it becomes unwieldy. It was on sale and I think I got the better end of this deal. I would recommend it to anyone.

          Comments about Paraguayan Hand-tooled Leather Travel Tote Bag:

          Happy with the purse. Can be used as a laptop bag, too. Leather is firm, as I had expected, but stiff like cheap items. Lining is fine but not thrilling. Would order it again or give it as a gift. Great value & loving it!

          Comments about Paraguayan Hand-tooled Leather Travel Tote Bag:

          It is the most beautiful bag I have ever owned. I love the detailing and the sturdiness of the hardware. It is the perfect size for me- large enough for work and small enough to carry daily. I would prefer the outer zipper to be on the back side of the bag, so that I could hold it close when traveling. I was surprised that the largest inner pocket had a different sort of lining, one that is often used in the knock off bags. It holds up well, but doesn't match the other linings. The handles are very solid, but one slips off of my shoulder easily. I was happy to get it on sale after Christmas. I had looked at the bag for a long time and could now afford it!! Thank you!

          Hunted to near extinction, the American bison was the focus of 19th-century conservation efforts, and now numbers more than 500,000, mostly in commercial herds. As it did for the Plains Indians, sustainably raised bison now provides a free-range source of food as well as leather. Made from U.S.-raised bison, this naturally tanned, pebbled leather belt has a 20" zipper along the back to store keys or as many as ten bills for safety while traveling.
