Mom has since passed and now my wife is using the purse with a few updates and modifications such as a new clasp, buckle on the strap to make it adjustable and our logo tag. The double loop lacing around the purse and the flap give evidence that this is a handmade leather purse. There is a little wear on the flap and the purse has developed a patina that gives it a unique leather look. This is a testament to how quality leather and leather craftsmanship can last for years and be handed down to the next generation.
Until next time, All the best.
