are they heavy like the Florentine bags?
Yes, they are somewhat heavy as the Flo bags. They're as heavy as Flo Stanwich satchels but not as heavy as regular Flo satchels. Very pretty IRL.
I agree with DD. They are lighter than the regular satchels, and most of the older florentine styles. The new Stanwich is a lighter weight and I feel the Toledo is comparable. I have the toledo medium Mail Satchel and I find it a relatively comfortable bag to carry.
I have many Florentine bags and only 1 Toledo (Stanwich), which I recently purchased. I find it lighter than the Florentine but not by much. I love the Toledo leather. It's in the runnings with Florentine for me.
