B.Makowsky Giamma Leather & Suede Hobo Bag with Hinge Hardware
Nice purse but leather cracking
I have often wished to purchase a handbag like this. I finally did a few months ago. At first I was happy with the bag for the most part. The zipper is hard to use if opened completely. You must really struggle to start it to close. The strap is cracking! I found this hard to believe when I have not used this purse as an everyday item and only maybe once or twice per week since January. I did like the bag and was going to purchase in green as well, but with the zipper issue and especially the cracking of the leather I will not.
Quality and luxury
I love this bag!!!! I own it in Black and just received the Brandy. Amazing soft suede with the softest leather. It is so comfortable I never even notice it on my shoulder until someone raves over it. The gold hardware really pops! Great organization too. Bruce never settles on quality.....the materials he used are superior. Thank you!! Try it ladies......you'll be tickled with the purchase.
Beautiful Hand Bag
This is just beautiful .. I'm not one to carry hand bags but I saw this and thought I might start .. I love love love this . The feel and its big enough .. It's the perfect size .. Many many compliments .. I got mine in black it's beautiful I'm thinking bout getting another .. Thank you QVC ...
Love this bag....Everywhere I go I get compliments and if I didn't its simply gorgeous!!! I have and the black and hardware is stunning. Considering purchase the brown.
Ordered the purse in Brandy and love it. Was pleasantly surprised at the size being so perfect. With one side with a zipper, it provides good security for my wallet while the side that snaps makes it more convenient to quickly grad my keys, etc. and not have to search through all the things I carry each day. Everything fits beautifully and with the one handle, have no slipping off my shoulder. LOVE IT!
love this bag got it in black it just yummy love everything about this bag
I love B. Makowsky bags and now have three! This one, which I got in brandy color, is absolutely beautiful. The pebble leather is so soft and supple, and the suede is gorgeous, too. I was lucky to get this on clearance before they were all gone! Keep those B. Mak bags coming, QVC!
Beautiful well made bag
I love the rich color of the green. It was purchased for the Christmas holiday so I have not used it yet.
This is a pretty bag and the leather is as soft as the host demonstrated however, I found it shallow, not holding as much as I wanted and the strap was an odd length, not pretty when put over the shoulder and yet too long to carry strictly by the strap. All in all, I didn't enjoy the bag for the cost so back it went, regrets.
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!
