This soft brown leather has a sporadic silver overly that is not too bright, so we call it "dull metallic." A fantastic medium-sized bag that's PERFECT for everyday! The hand-laced treatment on the front is a special detail, and the patching seams on the front lend additional interest. The back is plain. We love it! You can use as a shoulder bag, or if you need a clutch, clip off the straps! Lined in a rich burgundy canvas with an inside zipper pocket. 14.5" wide x 9" high. Straps are adjustable. Made in USA.
