B. Makowsky Naomi Leather Pocket Satchel w/ Stud Accents
I have this bag. Every time I use it people comment on it. It is a great buy. Plenty of space. Goes with everything. A must buy for you.
Beautiful and Roomy
I love this bag! I have lots of other bags, but this one is now my very favorite one. It is very stylish and roomy enough for all of my "stuff". It hangs well from my shoulder without it feeling too tight. I can't say enough good things about this bag.
Great bag, and NO Center ZIP! Love that!
Finally I've found a beautiful black leather bag without a center zip compartment! So many bags come with a center zip, but for me it just get's in the way and ruins the shape of my bag by dragging the center down and with it the sides.
I use a small cosmetic bag for any small items, and a center zip is completely unnecessary. I've seen many B. Makowsky bags that I would've bought over the years except they had a center zip, so I passed on all of them. Thank you B. Makowsky for FINALLY making a bag without a center zip, yet still has a zip closure, with feet, 2 handles, exterior zip compartments, is the perfect size for my silhouette and that doesn't weigh a ton.
I did though have to remove with pliers the smaller section of each zipper pull on exterior from zip compartments as the pulls kept sliding down due to their weight. But as far as my large leather tassel zipper pull it's perfectly fine after only a few days of use. But honestly it's probably the detail I like the least about the bag, so if it does fall off, like I've read in other reviews, I'm okay with that.
The size is perfect. I'm 5'1", a size 8 and with the bag slightly full (full size clutch wallet, 5x8 moleskine planner, Brighton sunglass case, trade paperback book) it has a hobo appearance which is exactly what I was hoping for.
Perfect and I highly doubt you can go wrong with this bag.
B. Makowsky needs to do a recall on this bag and replace the tassle. Touch the
tassle and the strands fall out. This is a big disappointment. Gets uglier by the day!
Winning in White
I have serveral B.Makowsky handbags and I must say, this one may be my new fav! White is definitely the "IT" color this Spring/Summer, so I'm ready to show it off! I am debating on the Brown Snake which means...I'll probably order it. Go ahead ladies, this one will never be out of style.
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.
