B. Makowsky Haircalf and Glove Leather Bucket Hobo with Fringe
I've had this bag for over a year now and love, love, love it. I carry it more often than any other I own and get compliments from strangers all the time. (Bruce does fringe well) Other than looks, it is a great size and fits all my stuff and there's still room for an extra diaper and wipes for my son.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this Bag! But...
Purchased this handbag for my grand daughter, beautiful beautiful bag. But yes unfortunately the design wears off.
1st ever disappointment
Love this bag BUT after having it for 4 months the 'haircalf' is rubbed off on the side I keep next to my body. Even the dye used to create the animal print is rubbing off. NOT good for a $264.00 bag. This situation renderes the bad cheap & useless.
beautiful b mak
got leopard and brandy gorgeous magnificent workmanship i love bruce!
Over a year and no loss of hair on my bag!!!
I have the leopard/stone bag and it is over a year since I got it and I don't have any loss of hair or any signs of hair loss... I admit I do rotate my bags every few months and store it in the dust cover when not in use, so far it still looks like new...I love this bag and get so many complements when I use it.
Not a hit
I love and trust QVC. I am surprised that with so many negative comments regarding this bag that it is still being offered. I thought that if I was very careful this problem would not happen to me-- I was wrong. The hair falls off just like everone says. With the cost of this bag and the economy the way it is today--I would not advise anyone to buy it. Too bad beacause I love the design--just not the quality-- sorry.
Hair off in patches;looks like my bag has MANGE!
I purchased this as a TSV last fall and wore this bag for about a month; went to use again and found patches of calfskin that had worn off, leaving a white patch ( not dark brown to match the bag) so it is very noticeable. Noticed MANY others have had the same problem and even threw their bags out. They are STILL selling this bag, knowing the defect that exists. Customer service says I can still return this bag which sadly, I will have to do. The leather and design of this bag was great, it was one of my favorite bags with all the pockets and the beautiful brown animal pattern, but the worn off spots are only getting larger and I am not hard on my bags! This was my first BM bag and will be my last probably- will stick with Dooney. QVC customer service is the BEST.
No, No, No
I am so disappointed! My first and possibly my last B. Makowsky bag. The hair rubs off after minimal use. This bag is too expensive to discard after little use.
MOMMIE, MOMMIE, MOMMIE, MOMMIE!!!!!!!
OOH, I love this bag...think it's one of the most dramatic TSVs ever offered by Bruce. So, there I was wretching in agony...as I sprung back and forth between the zebra and the white leopard...ALL DAY LONG till it was ALMOST too late...and I ordered the ZEBRA. But I love the white leopard, 'cmon when will you see another albino leopard I thought...so rare. Okay, but the black zebra is probably more versatile and it's fall...so, I bought the zebra. GORGEOUS. tdf. But the rare tow headed beast...I want it sooooo badly. Okay I'll compromise and get the rare beast in the summer...it'll be sooooo cute in the summer. And, I'll have an equal opportunity "zoo" in my closet! Yes, I did have a little bald spot, where the zebra rubbed against my hip. I expect to have one with my rare albino too. After all, nobody's perfect. NOT EVEN THE RARE ALBINO BEAST.
Purse with the mange!!
Of all purses I picked as a gift for my daughter, the haircalf does not last. The bag looks horrible and worst of all I am still paying for it on easy pay. There should be some way of returning an item that is defected!!!
This was my first Makowsky purchase. The bag is stylish and very functional. But...the haircalf wore off in several places making it look like an animal with mange. The bag will be going back.
Loved this bag but very disappointed
This has been the most comfortable bag I've worn in a long while. And I received many compliments. I always felt it elevated my outfit a bit. However .... the hair has rubber off in 3 places where it it hits my hip and there's no way I'll be able to continue wearing it. A bag at this price should not wear like this after 5 or 6 months. Disappointed.
