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.

It's a nice little bag, but not large enough to serve as a real work bag.Read More
The bag I received was the same (visually) that was shown on-line. Great leather texture and the handle/strap was adjustable. I brought this bag as a birthday present for my daughter as a schoolbag and she loved it. Great price, quality workmanship on the stitching. Overall, I am quite pleased with this purchaseRead More
I brought this bag as a gift and have retained it so far for myself. I will probably use it when I travel for my laptop and other necessities.Read More
I love this bag! As mentioned in other reviews, and the description, the colors are definitely different. What looks brown really reflects the name (honey) more accurately. The leather is more suede or nubuck-like, and susceptible to stains from water, so keep that in mind If you want something that's not going change character with use as easily. One could probably find a suede protector and spray that on. I will likely do that before I get too much use out of it, just to be safe. Overall I really like it though. It fits my needs perfectly. It's a little funky, roomy without being too heavy, and I can toss in extra work-related tools (pad, measuring tape, glasses, etc.) as needed.Read More
This is a perfect size messenger bag for lugging around a tablet and paperwork. I'm thrilled with my purchase.Read More
I love this bag, I've gotten so many compliments whenever I carry it. My only worry is that for some reason, I think the leather is wearing at a fast pace. Mind you I have only used the bag about (3) TIMES since my purchase of it. I am going to going to keep this bag because I just love it but I will keep a watch on the wear & tear. May send it back if the leather damages.Read More

I ordered this bag and can't wait to receive it, but there were some reviews commenting on the leather being damaged by water. o you recommend a particular treatment or protection for the leather upon receiving it? I was thinking a suede weather proofing spray...
Hello mira324, yes, you can use a water protection spray on this bag. Thank you for shopping with us!
How does the bag smell? I ordered a pair of boots once and the smell of chemicals was so bad I had to return them. A friend said maybe the smell comes from the merchandise being shipped from China and they have to spray something on it to kill anything that might want to hitch a ride. Thanks
