My black leather tote arrived today. I will say that after inspecting the leather tote inside and out I am quite pleased with what I have received. It arrived inside a protective bag and the gold tassels make the bag look quite chic/stylish. I will be taking it to the office tomorrow. I will like to have given it an Overall Rating of 5 Stars but since I received it today I am rating it 4 stars. Nevertheless, this evening I placed an order for a second leather tote in the color Cognac. Due to the sturdiness of this leather tote one can determine the durability.
I looked so forward to receiving this bag because the first one I purchased from Amerileather is wonderful and the durability is great. However, this bag is a disappointed. It has already begun to show wear and tear and I have not had the bag a good month. Durability is definitely a disappointment. The leather on the handles have cracked already!
The purse arrived timely and was indeed constructed of quality leather. It was larger than I anticipated but it has proved to be a good size for work as it accomodates a fair amount of paperwork. I plan to purchase another color and style as a well cradfted leather purse is hard to come by.
First of all,let me say that I am hopelessly and obsessively addicted to nice handbags. Nothing disturbes me more than to see a woman with a cheaply made/knockoff handbag. I when I opened the box for this bag it was in a plastic bag. When I opened the bag, the scent of GOOD leather just poured out. I just sat with my eyes closed and inhaled the leather for awhile before examinging the purse(LOL). When I looked at this purse, it was everything that I expected ad more. I ordered it in green and it is more beautiful than the photo. I am very pleased. I have not carried it yet, so I'm not sure how comfy it is, but I am certainly pleased overall with the craftsmanship and beauty. I woild recommend this bag!
This is a nice leather handbag. I tend to carry lots of extras in my purse, daytimer, bottled water, mail, over the counter meds, etc. so it is not uncommon to see me with a large bag. Very different design, which I love the unique European designer flavor. Does not look like your average leather bag for the price. I love leather and a bargain for leather is such a high. Would definitely buy as a gift.
This bag is much larger than it appears online. I didn't care for the strong smell of this bag. I'm not certain if it's the dye that was used or the solutions used to treat the leather or what but I had to leave the bag on an outside porch when I received it. Would not recommend.
