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.'

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
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.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. high quality
Description says "iron rings". Are they & the zipper silver or gold colored? There is no ouside pocket or divider inside the purse, correct? Are the shoulder straps reasonably sturdy? Could it be worn across one's body? Thanks!dawnmarie22 on Jul 13, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
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. overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 18, 2012
