Since the Spanish introduced livestock to South America in the 1600s, indigenous artisans have been using leather and adapting it to their own craft traditions. This tote begins with natural vegetable-tanned leather and features hand-tooled leaf designs on both sides. Inner organizer pocket with card slots, zip pocket, and cell phone slot pocket. Includes coin purse. Cotton-blend lining.
Handcrafted in Paraguay. 13" handles. 9 1/4"W x 11 1/2"H x 5 1/2"D.
The photo is deceiving. It appears that the top closes with a snap or zipper. The top is actually totally open. I would not carry this tote as a purse to travel, since prying hands can easily reach inside. It might make a nice tote for my book or snack.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Use this as my day to day carry bag with cell phone, wallet, pouches with different items in them so they don't get 'lost in the bottom' of a carry bag. Works really well. Love the look and feel - REALLY pleased!!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
