I’ve been a fan of totes - and collected many - for years now. A raw edge is imperative for them to stay looking nice and not get cracked/worn.
I was hesitant to purchase this tote as the pricing seemed too inexpensive to be good quality, but it has truly been the nicest tote I’ve ever owned - better than Saint Laurent, Cuyana & Rebecca Minkoff versions I purchased prior. When this handbag arrived I was pleasantly surprised that the liner was included. It helps to keep contents organized and the cloth interior is much easier on my leather wallet than a raw leather interior. I’ve been carrying this purse nonstop for about 9 months now and it looks just as good as the day I purchased it. I’m in outside sales so it gets tossed around all over my car & is subjected to extreme heat & sunlight. I will definitely order more handbags from Alexel Crafts & am so glad I found them on Etsy before they discontinued their storefront.
