Many years ago, I caught sight of a bright, beautiful, tooled leather handbag in an
incredibly soft and creamy leather with the print of an orchid flower on one side. I pur-
chased one for myself, but after looking at the prices, I wasn’t sure that we could
sell them in our store. However, after retiring my leather bag ( that lasted for six years)
from the folks at “Leader’s in Leather”, we decided to take a second look at the line we shopped the “California Gift Show” in downtown Los Angeles last July.
The bags were unique in the fact that they are handcrafted in bold and unusual colors
and shapes. The original designs are inspired by the traditional tooling methods of the
American West, then re-created by expert craftsmen and hand tooled. The bags are firm
and sturdy, and will look better and richer when worn in by time.
The leather wallets open easily, and are etched with a design on one side, and an orchid
on the front side. The colors are bright and colorful, in a bright cherry red, lime green,
navy, and natural of course. A zippered side pocket holds coin, while the other side opens
a space for cards, and a checkbook holder, or course. Easy to carry, clean, and boy what
a fashion statement! Find these bags at Owl Talk Clothing in Los Angeles, California.
