Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Eduardo Alcala, and I began to work with tooled leather in the state of Michoacan, Mexico, where I am from. I made saddles, linings, pants, etc. Then I made shoes and dressage. One day my wife asked me to make her a coin purse, and when the people at the workshop saw what I had done, they liked it and asked if could do it in a larger size. That's how I began making bags. I would like to assure customers that my products are entirely crafted by hand, with quality materials, which makes each piece a work of art.'

The leather work is beautiful, but the opening is small and the leather is stiff so it is hard to get your hand into it much less find anything. It is a pretty bag but I returned because it is impractical for me. Also, it does not stay upright.Read More

Questions & Answers
The iron rings are a gold color. You are correct, there are no outside pockets or dividers in the purse. The straps are leather and should be very sturdy. This is a shoulder bag so this would probably not quite fit across the body.
