It was a rude awakening when I got off the flight at the Florence Airport and the 30°C temps slammed me in the face at 10:45 at night! No luck if I thought arriving at night would help lessen the blow. So, not only is the vacation over but I feel like we are roasting (just sprinkle some Italian rosemary on me and add a few potatoes!)
Our production department is still relaxing on some exotic beach somewhere (at least I hope for them but here in sales we are reveving up for a End of Summer Sale where we will be featuring our Italian leather handbags for lots of back to school and back to work special deals!
One of my favorite Italian leather bags for back to school . . . ah those were there days . . . includes this Toscanella leather briefcase in a rich dark brown. This handcrafted leather bag has 2 compartments and several organizing pockets. The rolled leather top handle is easy and comfortable when the bag is loaded, it is also sturdy with with double stitched reinforcement on the metal buckles. Even though this bag is made from a vegetable dyed vacchetta leather you will find it surprising light weight – compared to, for example, the Campomaggi washed leather briefcases.
I especially like the unique zipper pull on the front pocket which doesn’t disturb the overall clean lines in the bag and is easy to open and close and hides the stark contrast of the metal zip to the luxury leather detailing.
