This is a nice leather handbag. I tend to carry lots of extras in my purse, daytimer, bottled water, mail, over the counter meds, etc. so it is not uncommon to see me with a large bag. Very different design, which I love the unique European designer flavor. Does not look like your average leather bag for the price. I love leather and a bargain for leather is such a high. Would definitely buy as a gift.
