        I bought a necklace from this company, through National Geographic and got rave reviews, I figured I would try something else. This bag has a classic sophistication that needs no embellishment except for the small star motif that adds a touch of art.

        Two men immediately commented on how nice the bag was, which told me something!

        It's perfect for carrying things in style.

                                      Two traditional Colombian crafts come together in this classic leather bag: leatherwork and hammock weaving. In a small, woman-owned workshop in Colombia, pebbled russet leather is combined with a strip of hammock fabric woven by expert craftspeople. The result is a timeless tote that has plenty of room for your everyday essentials and then some. Zip closure. One inside slash pocket and one inside zip pocket.

                                      This soft leather tote is decorated with swirls and butterflies, as well as bright peacock feathers. Called mayura in Sanskrit, the peacock is found throughout Indian poetry and mythology. The Hindu god Krishna wears a peacock feather, and the god of war Murugan rides a peacock in battle. In the 1960s the peacock was officially designated as the national bird of India.

                                      Tuscany’s rich history of leatherwork meets Florentine art and contemporary design in this luxurious patent leather tote bag. Every step of the process is done by hand in a studio in Bientina, a small Tuscan town near Pisa. Designs are embossed by hand in soft metallic shades inspired by Renaissance jewelry and ornate painting frames in the Uffizi Gallery.

                                      Just outside of Austin, Texas, the cool grotto of Hamilton Pool has attracted summer visitors for decades. Now part of a nature preserve, Hamilton Pool’s blue waters and the limestone that lines the pool’s edge were the inspiration for the faux turquoise and metal buckle on our Texas leather belt.

                                      Turquoise and tooled leather have been part of southwestern style for more than a century. This Texas leather belt is tooled with swirling designs and features a buckle and slide with faux turquoise pebbles. The vintage style is inspired by one of the tallest waterfalls in Texas, Madrid Falls in Big Bend Ranch State Park.

                                      Jewelers on the island of Java work in open-air studios creating the sterling silver beads that have been a local art form since the 16th century. This bracelet begins with a technique called repoussé, where designs are hammered into a sheet of metal. The textured metal is then curled into a long cylindrical bead, and a mold is made. Sterling silver beads cast from this original mold are then slid onto a braided leather cord to make a handsome bracelet that flatters both men and women. Made in Indonesia.

                                      Despite being the largest land animal in North America, the American bison was hunted nearly to extinction in the 19th century. Today herds thrive in the Great Plains. Our clip watch is backed with rich bison leather and features analog styling with luminescent hands, plus a compass for easy-access, hands-free navigation.

                                      Cattle ranching and leather-making have been important parts of the Bolivian economy since Jesuits introduced it during the Spanish Conquest. Each piece of this soft leather bag is hand-cut and assembled by skilled artisans in Cochabamba in central Bolivia, known as the Garden City because of its year-round springtime temperatures.
