When in Rome, they say, do as the Romans do, which includes emulating the seemingly effortless Italian sense of style. This roomy and supple woven suede bag is handmade of soft leather in Tuscany, where local leather goods are the main attraction at the bustling San Lorenzo market. It’s large enough to hold a day’s essentials, and the removable shoulder strap can be worn across the body for extra security.
Made in Tuscany, Italy. Approximately 15 3/4"W x 12 1/4"H x 7"D. 44" strap.
I travel quite a bit and was looking for something light and spacious. This bag does both. I also like the color - rich red and black handles look nice. However, I wish it had another inside pocket. It has one pocket and on the other side there is something - I don't know what. It is too small for a cell phone and cut in the middle - can't make out its purpose, waste of space. It did not start with a nice shape but I think that as I use it it will become nicer and nicer since leather is soft and flexible.
