Judith Ripka "Sutton" Nappa Leather East/West Satchel
Beautiful, Heavy Bag.
I was very impressed by the leather and all the compartments on this bag. If you want an organizer purse, then this is it. Once I loaded it up with my stuff, I will admit that it's on the heavy side. Also, the main closure magnet is not the strongest, but it stays shut most of the time. I got it in the grey and love the contrast of the smooth leather and the croco-embossed leather. Ordered in black as well, but sent it back. The heart charm dangle was missing the crystal stone, and I liked another style JR bag better in the black.
Just got this bag and I am thrilled. I have looked for the perfect Black bag This is it.It is not heavy. Great organization beautiful design.I can't say enough about the leather.I hope she continues to make bags.My friend ordered a different bag from her collection and it is beautiful to.
This bag doesn't close
I am sorry to say that I had to return this otherwise beautiful bag because magnets that are supposed to keep it closed don't work. I got one in the bronze and was looking forward to owning it but if I can't close it it is of no use to me.
If only the design included a secure lock.
This is such a great bag. Everything about it is fabulous. The zippers are high quality, and the hardware is beautiful. It isn't heavy and it opens up nice and wide. Because of the light lining you can see everything so easily. The leather is to die for and this is made to be a work horse of a bag. I purchased the pink and it is a beautiful purple/pink. It will match all of Judith's jewelry! I have several Judith bags and this is my favorite!
Stylish and Transforming!
Ordered this tote in both black and grey, thinking I would choose, but decided to keep both. It is beautifully designed and constructed. Particularly like the textural interest of the combination of nappa and croco embossed leather. Find I can carry it as a handbag, with the sides snapped and top closed by the magnet. Then, when needing a tote bag, the sides are unsnapped, top is left open, and it easily transforms to handle my iPad, magazines, a sweater, small clutch bag and other "stuff".
Beautiful BUT I had to return...
This handbag was lovely in the gray color. Both the size and the organization were terrific. However, when I put my things in the handbag (it was NOT over-filled), the central magnet was not strong enough to hold the handbag closed. It broke my heart, but I had to return it. Sorry I could only give it 3 stars.
I received this purse for Christmas. It is the softest leather and is large. Mine is grey and I really like it.
