So I just had to share this. I was at an art fair in Bethesda, MD - my hometown. And this booth with beautiful purses caught my eye. Of course I had to go and look and touch and talk to the people running the booth. I could not believe how well these purses are made. The artisan himself was there, and told me all about how they make the bags. They buy leather from England and just make it all by hand in his workshop in California. So cool, I actually met the person who made my bag. The bag I picked out looks like its made of leather in LV epi style. And it has pockets, lots of them. And no logos - only a tiny inscription the inside of the hardware buckle. And it has leather lining. And it was only $269. I brought the bag home and cant stop admiring it. The artisan has a website rocheleather.com in case anyone is interested. So here are some photos. What do you guys think of my new bag?
