We were walking through the historic Marais district of Paris shopping at our fish guy, our cheese guy, our vegetable guy and I was carrying a dirty bag that had been with me through Africa, Asia, India and was simply falling apart -- desperately wishing I had something chic, leather, and stunning that stood up to the wears and tears of a life on the go. The Marais bag was designed to be the perfect bag for breakfast at Rose Cafe, popping into Merci, wandering the streets shopping, stopping into Briehz Creperie for a pint and a crepe, or just exploring the meandering streets of Paris and the hidden gems contained within them. This bag combines the versatility needed for daily life with the chicness inspired by the district it’s named after. Oh, did we mention that this bag was designed to fold completely flat so it can fit in your suitcase?
Thank you for choosing an August handbag. With this purchase you have donated a backpack to a child in need in the Los Angeles School District. These handbags have been crafted with natural leather and materials that have unique variations in color and texture. In rare cases, the naked finishing of these materials may transfer color to other items, or pick up the color from items rubbed against them. These qualities add to the beauty of the bag and should not be thought of as imperfections. Avoid contact w/ water, grease, perfumes, or cosmetics. If your bag should get wet, wipe it with a soft neutral cloth to absorb the moisture. Please treat your bag with love and care, and Enjoy!
