Bruce Makowsky is not a newcomer to the industry by any means. He ran his own handbag company and was president of a major corporation where he developed the company into a $200 million business along with the design inspiration of his wife Kathy (of Kathy Van Zeeland fame). B. Makowsky handbags are defined by a signature leather tassel in addition to chunky satin-finished hardware and signature paisley lining. Zippers and pockets create function without bulk. Colors include simple blacks, browns and ivory with pops of fresh colors such as red, denim, saffron and tangerine.

*I ended up keeping the bag and I really do love it. I had to use it for a few days, but so glad that I did (4.6.2009)
This was my first B. Makowsky handbag, and judging by this purchase- it will not be my last. This bag is smaller than the Lisbon Tote, but has plenty of room. The leather is top notch as is the hardware.
I chose the two-toned Black/Bone color and I love it! (It's a hard to find color). I can always tell a good purse by the quality of the inside of the bag. It's in the details.
I have a few other bags that are much more expensive --but this one ranks right up there. I can't wait to get other B. Makowsky bags.
