Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: B. MAKOWSKY Nora Tote (Apparel)
What a nice handbag! Those who are familiar with B. Makowsky bags will know to expect fine workmanship and great quality leathers and fabric. I want to emphasize that unlike most of this designer's bags the hardware on this bag is NOT at all clunky and heavy. I always admire his bags but then quickly put them back once I pick them up because most of his hardware is so very heavy. The faux fur is excellent quality (I got the Llama) and unlike the photo depicts (to my very happy surprise) the metallic leather is not shiney silver, but rather a much more cool toned pewter or gunsmoke color! I do wish he would lighten up the animal print color inside his bags to make it easier to see inside. The leather is just the right balance between being soft and pliable, yet still having enough body and structure to hold it's shape. The straps are very comfortable and the double binding across the shoulder section gives added support and durability. The magnetic closure works very well; finds itself easily and stays together, yet also separates easily enough when reaching one hand into the bag. Overall the bag is fairly lightweight (particularly so compared to most B bags0, very confortable and cozy to hold onto!
