My daughter bought me the navy leopard shopper at a boutique in Savannah. I absolutely love it, literally every time I’ve used it I’ve gotten compliments. Perfect size, easy access to all of my belongings and super chic!
I googled your company and love your commitment to women, your integrity to the concept of a handmade bag and the influence of your heritage. Well done! I’m excited to carry my bag on an upcoming, post-vaccinated beach vacation with my hubby!
I have just received the order. The bags are wonderful, just perfect! I am very happy about the purchase. Best regards and all the best from Zurich
I first heard about your products from renting on Rent the Runway. I have an unlimited plan and was looking for a fun accessory for the summer. I loved the bag so much that I purchased it from RTR. Subsequently my sister in law fell in love and bought two, and now we’re buying one for our step mother who commented on how much she loved our bags. Your designs and quality are beautiful and unique. I’m a huge fan!
The more I learned about your company made me want to support small business like you. I have been using it and have got a lot of compliments on it! Hope you’re stay safe and well. Keep on producing great products
Just wanted to let you know I purchased the Black Leopard print Shopper a couple weeks ago through Anthropologie. I loved it so much I purchased the Sunny Leopard Shopper and expect it to be delivered today! These bags are truly a work of art and fit my lifestyle perfectly. Soft, the contents are easy to find in the relax structure of the bag (no digging around to find something) and I love the size . Your artisans are truly talented and God bless you all....stay safe!
