    As a child, Renzo played with fasteners and leather pieces while other kids his age played with building blocks and toy cars. The reason for this is that his mother used to take him to the workshop where she worked since there was no one to help look after him.

    "I've been playing with leather since I was three years old," recalls Renzo. "I used to love it when they'd give me a pile of cut outs to play with. I used to order them by color. My mother would give me bunch of fasteners and clasps to separate by shape or size. This is why I credit my mother for my love of leather."

    • Gorgeous!

      I love this bag. It works as both an over the shoulder purse or unzip the strap and use it as a backpack. It has plenty of room for everything I need plus lots of pockets. The suede is velvety soft but dries quickly and cleanly if it gets wet. I especially like the back zipper compartment -I can keep my wallet and other important items in there, wear it as a backpack and feel secure that no one can get into it from behind me. Plus the embroidery is absolutely beautiful - I get so many compliments on this bag.

    • Peru Andean Backpack

      Well made, unique and distinctive, thoughtfully designed - wouldn't hesitate to recommend this product to others. I don't like what everyone else has and I always look for value, design and good price with a unique flair. This bag has it all. A definite MUST HAVE.

    • Leather Andean Teardrop Backpack

      The bag is as cute as the picture and hangs on my shoulder nicely. However, the back main compartment has a zipper going the full length so that you can only store certain items, The side compartments are completely impractical -- there is no room in there whatsoever, except for something paper thin. I end up storing everything in the front compartment....so it has too many items in it while the other compartments are not used.

    • Beautifully crafted bag!

      This purse is exquisitely designed with an embroidered accent panel that is eye catching without being flashy. The suede is buttery soft and appears to be of a higher grade than what is usually available on bags under $100 There are two zippered pockets on either side which are perfect for holding keys or "immediate access" items and a large zippered main pocket that, so far, is holding just about everything I need to carry on a daily basis. All the zippers work smoothly and, besides being sturdier than usual, are well sewn. Under the main flap there is another pocket which secures by a magnetic snap and this is roomy enough to hold my cell phone, wallet and checkbook. I suppose the only drawback would be that the "main" compartment doesn't have any dividers or additional pockets and the side pockets are shallow enough that, if not zipped, would allow contents to fall out but neither of these detract from my satisfaction with this product. Oh, one more thing. The manufacturer thoughtfully included a canvas outer bag to store the purse in. Much appreciated!

    • Just OK

      I was surprised by the pockets, all vertical with zippers, so things can fall out. There is a horizontal pocket under the flap but it doesn't close off, so things can fall out of that too. Also, the zippers stick. The bag is OK as a pack, but when I use it on one shoulder it is always slipping off. It took a really long time to get, and I don't think I'll use it too much.
