Romana- Cream Small Textured Leather Backpack, Shoulder & Crossbody BagAwaiting stock, please let us know if you would like to pre-order.
Romana has been an instant hit with Ang and our friend who we gave one to for her birthday.
Four bags in one, this is ideal if you are looking for a smaller bag that you can use as a backpack to keep your hands free, as well as a bag that you can use as a shoulder bag or crossbody bag. The top handle is handy if you just want to grab it to take it to the car of the train or generally use it a s a grab bag.
The leather that this bag is made from has been embossed to give the textured effect, to do this the leather needs to be a decent thickness and strength so it will not feel soft to the touch. However, this is not a stiff leather and is pliable so is comfortable to wear.
This is a semi structured bag, so when it has items in it, it should stand on its base, the studs on the bottom will help with protecting the base.
The main compartment is secured by a full-length gold coloured zip which has two pullers and goes to the base of the bag on both sides to give easy access to all of the bag. Both sides are gusseted to about halfway up the bag, to stop your things from falling out when fully opened.
When you get inside the bag, you have a choice of storage options, the main compartment has a zipped compartment dividing in into two, this pocket is not attached to the base, so small items can get between the two main compartments. But this centre pocket along with the zipped pocket in the lining and vanity pocket are great for holding small items so that they are easier for you to find.
There are a further two compartments on the outside of the bag, to the rear there is a zipped lining compartment, and the front has a patch pocket with a flap and magnetic popper, the very bottom of the sides of this pocket have a small gap so it is not ideal for very small things.
As well as the carry handle on the top of the bag, the fully adjustable straps, can be used as adjustable shoulder straps, or two rucksack/backpack straps, which are adjustable by the gold coloured metal sliding buckles.

Due to the bags being handmade, you will find variations in colour, softness, and the grain of the leather, as they are prepared using traditional Florentine techniques. These variations are characteristics of traditional Italian manufacturing, and are a renowned feature of authentic real leather.
Most bags will come with a stamp and/or label saying Vere Pelle or Borse in Pelle, translated, this means Real or Genuine Leather, and Leather Bag or Handbag.
Some bags may come with a faint smell that is not the leather, this will be either due to the tanning of the leather, or glue, for bags that are glued and stitched, this is normal and will wear off quickly.
The model shown in the pictures is 5' 6" and a UK size 12, hopefully the credit card shown will help with the size of the bag, if you do need further help you can contact us on the link lower down.

Just as things can look different inside and outside of a physical shop.
It may sound obvious, but please keep away from naked flames or excessive heat, it will burn.
