On this bag... I guess it's not actually weaved leather,but embossed to appear that way. I am thinking that would wear better than if it were actually weaved? Then the edges might get worn looking. I like it, but am not quite sure about the shape with the gathers near the middle. I find myself veering toward this bag whenever I see it online...but haven't heart anything about it. I am looking for a black bag with brass colored hardware....I dislike very much my Kooba Sienna black bag that came yesterday. The leather is beautiful....but the style in black is just too much for me. ush: Product DetailsAndrea Brueckner's new handbag collection is one of the most sought after this season. It's an extremely practical bag with a leather basketweave body that looks so good you'll want to carry it year round! 17" Long x 8" High 17" Strap length Black basketweave embossed leather with front draping detail Double piping strap Main compartment features zip closure Interior zip pocket and cell phone pockets Antique gold hardware A MUST for this season! Also attached a pic of in brown for more detail viewing...and a different view in black.
