Featured Reviews on Handbags
This little bag will be a great gift for a good friend. It came wrapped already so I cannot see it until she opens it. I know it will be beautiful and well made just as all the bags are I have gotten from Guatemalan artists.
My wife loves it!
I bought this as a gift for my wife and she truly loves it. The craftsmanship is superb and having zippers on top and side are exactly what my wife wanted. It made her day knowing that we are supporting the effort to help international artisans! Highly recommended!
