Such a pretty gold bag that is perfect for nights out, as well as a special everyday bag. The leather is so amazing! It's an Italian leather that is black and gold, where the gold floats across the black ground showing the black underneath. It's soft and subtle, just gorgeous. The bag opens with a frame mechanism that springs open when you pull the leather tabs, and stays open until you snap it back closed. The strap is a strong steel gold chain with leather over your shoulder for comfort, and is long enough to wear crossbody. 10.5W" x 9.5H" with a narrow gusset so the bag sits snug to your body.. Impeccable craftsmanship. Lined in burgundy canvas with an inside zipper pocket. Made in the USA.
