I liked the picture upon ordering although the picture does not do the purse justice. I was quite impressed at the quality of material, & the leather stamped areas were really attractive. It will likely be in my purse holder longer than any other one. The depth is perfect and fits all my items. I believe an outside cell ph holder would benefit the purse - perhaps on the side. thanks its worth the price

It really is a nice bag; well crafted and large enough to hold my everyday things without being too large. I'm 6ft tall and sometimes have a hard time finding bags with long enough straps - this one adjusts perfectly.
My one disappointment was in the colour variation -- I expected some variations (it is hand crafted, after all) but some of the leather pieces in my bag were much lighter (more sand coloured), not the dark brown as pictured. It still looks very nice, but it wasn't the "look" I was expecting.
I kept the bag since it does look good (the different coloured pieces work harmoniously; they are not patchy looking). I do really like the bag and use it everyday. I gave it 3 stars due to the colour variation.

      Comments about Bolivian Tooled Leather Bag:

      Beautiful and well-made. You won't find a handbag like this at a department store. It looks like something you found during a treasure hunt from one of your travels. The color is darker than pictured, so expect some color variance. It has an adjustable strap that can be worn cross-bodied or on the shoulder. Yes, it does have a strong petroleum based odor, which I believe may be from finishing or dying agents. I couldn't wait to use it and didn't want to wait weeks or months for the odor to naturally air out, so I tackled the odor by wiping the entire bag down with leather cleaner and polish. I then stuffed and wrapped it with wrapping tissue, heavily spritzed with perfume, then stored it in a hat box for one week. The bag absorbed the scent from the perfume and I can no longer detect the original odor. Problem solved. I enjoy using my bag!

            I really love this purse! The first time I wore it I received lots of compliments.

            Some people have commented about a smell. Yes, there is a faint leather smell when you first get it, but just let it air out for a day or two and it goes away.

            The smell takes a while to disapear. I guess it must be the oil finish that they apply to it.
