Story Behind the Art: Rosa Ariza is known to many as 'Dona Rosa' because she is a leader and role model for all the women of her very poor and violent neighborhood. Without finishing high school she started working for a leather company in Colombia. Her first job was to clean, but she quickly advanced to working on quality control and after 12 years was responsible for a complete production line. The company unfortunately failed, but out of hardship came renewed strength and perseverance. In 2002, she started her own workshop, beginning with just herself but rapidly expanding. In 2007 Sapia found her and immediately began a partnership with some products made for domestic market and others for export. The quality, and commitment of Rosa has been the key to be able to growth the sales.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I am so happy with the look and feel of this Worldstock product. I am very tall so this is not a cross-body messenger bag but as I am used to slinging bag over one shoulder it works perfectly. Strap and sides are sturdy fabric material and I must say I would prefer leather strap. Nice inside zipper pocket and entire bag zips closed under flap. Overall, simple and chic!

I have been wanting a smaller size leather messenger bag to use when traveling and this suited me well. It's on the "rugged" side, not a sleek professional look, but I wanted something sort of artsy and hand-crafted. As other reviewers have noted, the strap, sides and bottom are webbing, sort of seat belt like. The leather's thick, but not too stiff given how thick it is and will likely soften with time. The color has some variation in it, but again, I like it that way. It's going to show wear, but I like that too. Good bag, but read the reviews and know what you are getting, or I could see someone being disappointed. I was pleased to be buying something handmade that supported a small scale industry in Colombia.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes, pretty accurate

This is a very nice bag. I have gotten quite a few comments on it. The color I have is the turquoise and brown. It is a nice size that holds my reading material and my IPad along with other items. It has an small pouch with a zipper on the inside for smaller items like credit cards, wallet, money, etc. it also has zipper at the top under the flap. There is no lining but I love the quality of this bag and the coloring,seems to be very durable and sturdy with the seatbelt like adjustable strap that's nice and wide.
I have been wanting a nice, quality, fashionable messenger bag and I finally have it!!!! The raw materials are beautiful and the hardware works perfectly with the aesthetics of the bag. A generous shoulder strap allows the bag to work well as a cross body or shorten it up to handbag length. It's roomy enough to carry letter size files or pack a favorite book, laptop, phone & wallet and head off to the coffee shop, class or an interview. I absolutely LOVE this bag.
Thanks again Overstock. You've never let me down.
I do not particularly like the leather used for this bag--would have preferred softer leather--it looks a bit lake plastic-the cloth strap also makes it a bit cheap. But I love the shape, colour, size. The bag would have also been more user friendly if it had more or better compartments--
This bag was a wonder gift to my daughter for her birthday. She works in admin at the local university and wanted a new messenger bag for her birthday. Her wish was for functional and professional but trendy. She loves her bag and I love making her happy.
