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! The strap has a buckle and is adjustable up to 4". You can wear it over your shoulder, or crossbody, or a clutch! The length of the strap from end to end is 36" to the middle hole (which allows 2" leeway on either side). Lined in a rich burgundy canvas with an inside zipper pocket. 14.5" wide x 9" high. Made in USA.
