I wanted a purse that would last for years. I think this is it. It is small enough that it still feels like a clutch without the straps. The color is a slight reddish brown rather than a very dark brown. It has a really nice leather smell and it is soft but durable.
The design for the belt bag is a little weird as it seems to have the belt buckle towards the back unless I really don’t understand it which could very well be. But I bought it mainly to be a purse and clutch so I’m happy.
As a pocket enthusiast I really wanted to see the inside before buying it. I’ll try to describe it for you. There is one large zipper compartment that is the size of the front panel and zips along the top. The inside is a solid box shape that fits my iPhone 12 with room for chapstick a folded mask and a very small lotion bottle. The back part of the inside has six card slots so you don’t need a wallet.
I really love this purse. It has a natural look that I love and combined with all that Nisolo is doing for its employees and the environment, it was a guilt free purchase for a person that generally agonizes about the equity and sustainability of purchases.
