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 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.
Loved it when I took it out of the box- leather was great. Unfortunately I got caught in the rain. The bag looks AWFUL now- the leather, esp. The brown is now rough and " mealy " feeling and in appearance! What a shame for a bag that's a week old:(

Looking for something for that college student on your gift list? Messager bags are useful, and are excellent for that all-important transition from college student to professional. This has the professional look, but is still trendy enough for a college student to carry around, containing the computer, a few sheets of paper for lecture notes, and the meal-ticket. College students are so busy, they just are constantly on the go from breakfast to dorm room. This messenger bag assists with organization and efficiency, while maintaining the image of being "cool".

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.
