I was just looking at the NM website. I do not own any BV's but my interest has grown since reading the BV threads. There is on that is on sale that is just called the embroidered woven hobo. It costs $2238 and comes in Ebano. Does anyone here have it? Can you tell me about it? Is it huge? Slouchy? Easy to use? And exactly what color is Ebano, it looks like black? Would this be a good first BV? I put it in my shopping cart but I know it may be sold before I get back. That's ok though, because I know I 'll get good advice from all you ladies for when I do buy even if it's not today.
