B.Makowsky Giamma Leather & Suede Hobo Bag with Hinge Hardware
I thought it was better than it turned out to be
Bought this purse in black as a todays special value and loved it. Almost a year later and I am so disappointed. The strap has begun to get rough on the edges where it rides on your shoulder and creases. I am also seeing small breaks in the edges of the leather strap. For the money I paid for this purse, I expected better quality.

I was (am) so in love with the style of this bag - just stunning. I was so disappointed when I received it to find the stitching in the arm strap was frayed and even shredded in some places. For the price of this bag and Makowsky's reputation I was truly shocked. I had to return it do to the quality. I hope I just received the lemon and others can enjoy their -what should be - a fabulously designed bag.
Cute But Color Is Off
Love BMak bags, especially this slouchy hobo style because it's lighter weight and stays on the shoulder even when fully loaded. However, I ordered the Brandy thinking I was going to get that beautiful, rich reddish brown I'm used to in other BMak bags. Not so, the suede on this bag is cocoa brown so the whole bag looks brown. The large zipper compartment on the inside of the bag is a great idea but I had to struggle to unzip it every time, using two hands with the bag set down. Not fun or convenient. Back it goes!
Love LOVE this bag.Beautiful better in person.Its a keeper.
I don't have enough adjectives in my vocabulary to describe this hobo bag.
I decided to just say "beautiful, beautiful" as one of your hosts repeatedly says when she's describing an item. I guess saying it twice emphasizes the beauty of the item so I decided to do the same. I truly want to emphasize how wonderful this bag is.
I am very pleased with this purchase, in case you hadn't noticed...
This bag just arrived yesterday--I bought it in black. I love it!
Great fal and winter bag
I bought this last year in black, it is the perfect size and the hardware is stunning The leathe ris soft and suppleThe bag is well made and still looks brand new. I received many compliments, on it. I would recommend this bag to anyone
I purchased the mulberry
I used this bag all last winter. It was easy to carry and I was able to find things in it. My only issue is that the leather piping on the strap cracked and chipped into little pieces. It is not immediately noticeable. I did not expect that to happen in a handbag of this caliber.
Beautiful navy suede and leather bag -- have receive many compliments, but I guess I like more structure in a bag. I don't like the way the bag hangs--outside pocket hangs open revealing lining--need magnetic closures on all pockets. Not sure it's worth the price.
Lots of compliments!
Got this in the green and constantly got compliments on the color. Only problem is I wish there were a couple more pockets inside and it would cause the security bells to go off in almost every store I went in and out of!
Love this bag!
I own this suede hobo bag in mulberry and brandy. Beautiful and so much room. Wish I owned every one.
Overall nice bag but needs feet
I bought this as a TSV in brandy and ginger; both colors are beautiful. I like the look of this bag and the organization if provides. That said, I probably wouldn't purchase this bag again because it doesn't have feet. For the price of the bag it should have feet - especially due to the soft suede material. I am constantly worried about it falling and being soaked/ruined from all the winter dirt, salt and water on the floorboard of my car and everywhere else I go.
