Are they still making the Riva bags? They apparently didn't sell especially well, partly because of all the negative discussion about the hardware, but mostly because they were very expensive due to the quality of the leather. It may not hold up well with a lot of heavy use, but it was beautiful and excellent quality.

No, I don't think they are, but saw one the other day on reebonz.com in red, that's why I was so excited.....at first.... Pretty expensive though.

Love, love, LOVE your Riva siblings, CeeJay. That Cobalt is spectacular, and looking at your Caramel makes me want the Large Caramel Riva I saw, all over again *sigh*

I'm afraid that I would have busted my "budget" (what's that???) .. if I saw a RED Riva!!! I really can't begin to describe how delicious the leather is. Yes, they are pricey .. but frankly, the quality is better than the "regular" bags (except the oldies) .. and the leather seems to be a lot more durable. I wore that Velo every day for quite some time, and there isn't a single scratch, mar, ding .. NOTHIN'!!
