I have many purses that cost upper $300 price, and they all have great brand names, but, since purchasing this bag, they (the expensive purses) stay in my purse closet and never get used. That's because this bag has been my favorite since purchasing it. I read your reviews on it, and that sold me as well as the statement about it being so soft. It really is So, I bought two (red and black). I'll probably get one or two more in other colors. I can't say anything bad about these bags. Thanks for making them, and by the way, why don't you also make wallets. I'd love to see what you have in that line, even though I just bought a great one. Just a thought.
