This is the 2nd Amerileather bag I've purchased . I bought the first one for my teenage daughter more than 1 year ago and it's still going strong. This bag will be a gift for a family friend going off to college. I know she'll love it and I'm betting she'll receive as many compliments as my daughter did. For other reviewers who complained about the smell of the bag----that's the smell of new leather. Buy with confidence.

I just received this bag today, and I love it. The colors are fun, I find the stitching to be well done. I really like the detachable shoulder strap as well. I think this is a great find for the price! Where else can you find this much workmanship and detail in lamb leather at this price?? Very colorful and unique. I plan to carry it as a travel tote and can't wait to use it! Now that I've discovered Amerileather I could be in serious trouble!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Looked quite similar
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. In line with pricing
- How accurate was the sizing? Photo with model makes it look larger than I think it is. Model must be very petite!
I love this bag, i use it every day and it has been very useful. I can carry everything I need for the day in it. It had an overpowering leather smell when I first got it, that I didn't like, but it is nearly gone now, so I'm very happy with the bag. It has a handcrafted look and appeals to my eclectic personality.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Much nicer and brighter, clear colors than depicted in phots
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is good for an everyday bag, has a hippy feel, very soft and floppy, but I like that. Was looking for a casual bag with personality and this fit the need perfectly.
- How accurate was the sizing? Just right. I can fit everything in there, all my purse stuff plus my lunch bag and a few other things. No need for more than one bag to fit all my activities for the day
Overall this is a perfectly fine, inexpensive leather bag. The size and design are just as described. As others have noted, it does smell like leather, but I expected that. What I did not expect was the colors of the leather used to make the bag. The description says "NOTE: Due to the multicolored nature of this handbag, the product you receive may differ slightly from the product displayed in the picture." The word "slightly" should be removed. The colors in the bag I received bear no resemblance to the picture whatsoever. The bag I received is made with leather in colors that include least three different shades of pink, baby blue, aqua, teal, bright blue, bright yellow and chartreuse. It does not resemble the color palette in the photo. If you're just looking for a multicolored bag in the pattern shown, and aren't set on any particular colors, you should be fine. Otherwise, choose a different bag.
I purchased this bag as a Christmas gift (2012) for my daughter-in-law. The bag arrived in just a few days and was everything I had trusted it would be. (More-so, it was especially appreciated by my D-I-L! ) The leather is incredibly soft and the workmanship is beautiful. The color is vibrant and the earth tones make it an accessory for almost any attire. It's a great bag capable of carrying so much and includes a smaller matching bag. The versatility with the straps is a great feature. She receives so many compliments and inquiries on where she bought it. This is a Great Bag!!

Very attractive, funky and unusual looking. High quality. Large and roomy. Comes with a detachable shoulder strap. Looks expensive. Great deal. Con: A few too many metal loops.

- How accurate was the sizing? The woman in the photo must be very tiny, it is not as large as it appear in that photo.
This is one fabulous and well made leather bag! I purchased to use as a travel bag during my stay in Africa. It held up extremely well and was very roomy. The stitching is excellent. I received many compliments. I wanted to purchase one for my friend and daughter but it seems to not be available anymore. I will watch out for it hopefully it will be around again.

What a fabulous, gorgeous finely assembled and detailed bag. I bought this to use as my 25 year old daughter's Easter "basket". The colors are gorgeous. The bag was large enough to contain her Easter basket items...paints, canvases, cases of jelly belly beans, lollipop rings, etc. You know it's a fine thing when you open the box and then have to struggle to gift it to your beloved daughter. My Momma Lama (my daughter's nickname for me) won out. I'm not keeping it and am gifting it as intended. Oooh and it smells like gorgeously rich leather!!
This bag is great looking and well made. I have received many compliments on it. There is only one issue that I have had with it. The handless have a seam right in the center where all of the weight of the bag and its contents are focused and it has pulled apart. After sewing it to reinforce that area, it has been fine.
Last year, I purchased a Maya bag (same bag, different pattern) by Amerileather. I love that bag. I am not a person who likes to change purses: I live out of my purse and once I pack all of the many daily essentials that I need to make it through my bus commute, trek through town, busy work day, etc., they stay there. My purses are subjected to weather of all sorts and rigorous use, so I need them to be versatile in terms of style, use, and durability. The Maya bag has definitely lived up to all of my expectations for well over a year...and it still isn't done. This Bailey bag, however, began showing signs of wear and breakage in just a day or two. The hand strap - which I don't even use (I carry using the shoulder strap) is nearly ready to fall apart where the stitching joins the pieces of leather together. Very disappointing.
I like the idea of the bag with the mixing and matching of leathers in a geometric pattern. I bought a nice bag from anthroplogy that has since worn out and have not been able to replace. I was hoping this would do it. Not even close... workmanship leaves something to be desired. Looks like they've used scraps and carelessly applied to an envelope. The edges are not sewed down and look ragged on the leather pieces.
I bought this bag/tote to use as a carry on for a trip I am planning. It is excellent for an overnight. I am very pleased.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Great Color
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was excellent. Exactly as described
- How accurate was the sizing? Sizing was good, but the girl they used for a model must be very small. This is a tote, but in the picture it appears to be larger that it actually is. I now have 3 Amerileather bags and am very pleased with all. Do not let the "smell" keep you from buying, it goes away fast.
This bag is quite eye catching and beautifully constructed. Bags quality looks as though I spent 3-4 times than what I actually paid. Leather is both soft and durable. Based on the reasonable price, I was very skeptical and worried about exactly I would receive. Glad to say I am quite pleasingly surprised. Not my last Americanleather purchase for sure!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Color was spot on. Colors were vibrant and simply gorgeous!!!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Superior quality and craftmanship.
- How accurate was the sizing? Larger and more roomy than anticipated. Perfect for travel.
This bag was purchased to carry my dog training supplies, and it is up to that challenge. I was surprised that the squares are attached with one X pattern across the center. As a result the edges gap - a lot. The quality is disappointing but not less than one should expect for the price. I got what I paid for, and I am happy with the bag.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? The colors are slightly less vivid, but overall a good match
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Fair
- How accurate was the sizing? Very accurate
I like this bag and in suits my need for a weekend trip. My only complain is that i wished it has more room. You can't put too much in it or else it won't close. But I guess this is not designed for bulky stuff. For the price,i guess I could have gotten a little bit better bag. But I love the color and the design. It received compliments.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. it is good
