B. Makowsky Naomi Leather Pocket Satchel w/ Stud Accents
I love this bag, love that it's soft, easy to load, easy to get things out, great size, great leather, love the front zippers, love the color (Chianti)! I have no problem with puddling, I love the soft leather. I have a zipper cosmetics case inside to hold miscellaneous small stuff and that seems to keep it upright, and it holds my Nook tablet AND my Dell tablet, wallet, checkbook, everything. In addition, it isn't heavy so it doesn't provide me with a back ache. I would love to have it in red, as well. It is so pretty I like to leave it on my cedar chest so I can see it when I'm on the computer!
I cannot answer for whom it would be a perfect gift because it's a perfect gift for any female on the planet.
This is my first B. Makowsky handbag and it is beautiful. I got the brown snake. The leather is very soft and it's not heavy. The size is just right for every day use. I gave it a 4 star because of the 2 outside zipper pockets. I would of liked 1 pocket that ran across the handbag. Other than that it's a keeper.
I bought this bag in Brown Snake. It's gorgeous!!! It's a soft leather bag, with plenty of room for anything I need to carry. It's light weight so even with all my stuff it doesn't feel heavy. The side zippers are perfect for my keys and chap stick or lip gloss. I've received tons of compliments on this bag, which is always fun. This is my 4th B Mak bag. He knows how to make a purse!
Makowsky Leather Satchel
I like this bag very much. It is very roomy and well made. I have bought Makowsky bags before and highly recommend them.
One who loves it!
Got the nutmeg, which I just love. Yes, this is somewhat naked leather which I have in a few other BM bags. They are so intoxicating to hold, touch & feel that I take my chances and be careful with them. I have the pebbled bags which wipe clean but these are really special and I love them. To me this bag is more on the large side & I am petite, so still thinking. This leather is sooo soft & a quality leather smell, not toxic smelling as cheaper ones are. If you are leaning away from this bag because of the "one large compartment" inside, do as I do & use a bag organizer which allows any bag to stand & stay super organized. I love the "deluxe" fringe zipper pull & gorgeous hardware & the bag is lightweight, which I think I even read a complaint about that?? It's just a great bag!!
So beautifully made, fantastic price for this bag. I bought.the brown snake..equisite details... I will certainly by from B Macowsky again
I purchased this bag in the ink snake and was anxiously awaiting the arrival. It looked so lovely on TV, however, when it came the workmanship was not up to the usual B. Mak quality and the top zipper did not close properly. Plus, no dust bag was included. Sorry, Bruce, had to send it back. I have many B. Mak handbags and this is the first one that has not lived up to my expectations. Hopefully, the quality will return in future handbags as I am still a fan.
my second one!
just received my second one. i love everything about this bag. size, colors, function, feel, look, style. just love it. never before B Mikowski have i been willing to spend this much money on a hand bag but over the last 5 months....... well now i have 5 of his bags two of these freezia and chianti i am ALWAYS getting compliments very happy B MIKOWSKI you are the BOMB.com!!! Doing the happy dance!
I got this bag in the Ink Snake and I love it!!! The color is beautiful, the leather super soft, and the hardware is substantial. I usually like bags that have more structure; can't stand my stuff to be all jumbled around. This bag, however, is slouchy but the feet on the bottom keep it from being a puddle. I just love it!
Not a good bag purchase
That purse was really neat....but the big thing is, is it doesn't have a zipper compartment in the middle of the bag. Everything that you would be putting in the bag would all be together. Trying to find something no way...the purses that I think are the best are the ones that have a center section with a zipper that you can have you check books, pen, lipstick etc. in that and keep your wallet etc in the un zippered part. I really wished he would make the same bag but with a zippered compartment in the middle of the bag. I would buy that purse in a minute if he did because that purse was really good looking on the outside. I use to buy purses like that before I had the zipper compartment but after having one of them I will not buy anything else and I buy a lot of purses.
LOVE THIS BAG!
I love that this bag is big enough to hold everything I like to carry. Love the tassel pull and front zipper pockets. The only thing wrong is that the front zippers keep unzipping. Other than that I am very satisfied with the bag.
Lovely, but not big enough
It is a lovely bag but not as big as I thought it would be from the description. I bought it in black to carry daily for work. It is lightweight, which is very important, but it is not big enough to fit a file folder comfortably. And my essentials barely fit without it looking over stuffed. I like the front zipper pockets a lot and love the tassel zipper pull, but not enough to keep the bag. I am also worried about the naked leather. I adore Bruce's pebble leather but this naked leather doesn't feel like it will take daily wear. I don't abuse my bags but for a work bag I can't worry about babying it.
