100% genuine Italian leather purse is interwoven with colored and embossed strips of more leather. This makes for a pleasing striped look on both sides. There is also a contrasting color whip stitched into the fixed loop handle which has a 6" drop. Top snaps close. There is a small amount of wear at the base of one of the straps. The bottom has a small mark as well, which cannot be seen unless the bag is upside down. The rest of the exterior is in excellent condition. The interior is pristine, very clean and fresh and crisp. The solid camel color tan fabric has a center zipper pocket as well as side zipper pockets and open pouches. This is a very pretty, yet sturdy bag that holds its shape no matter the contents. Substantial in size, 14x11x4. Call it a purse or a tote, it's still a great bag.
