    I have purchased several pieces from Buffalo Billfold Company over the last couple of years and have been amazed at the quality of materials and very specially the craftsmanship. This recent purchase was for my Wife on Valentines Day. It was a great hit, she loves it!

    I love this purse!! It is like a tardis, I swear, it is so compact and lightweight, and yet it holds so much. I swear there’s more room on the inside somehow. My husband and I decided long ago that when we were financially able, we would purchase long lasting, handcrafted goods as often as we could. Both as a way of saving money and reducing waste, and by investing in artisans. This purse will last for a very long time, I can tell. The leather is phenomenal. And as someone who has spinal issues, it doesn’t hurt my neck or back to carry. It is beautiful and functional. I am so impressed.

    This is one of many pieces I have gotten from Buffalo Billfold. Even visited their shop on a cross country motorcycle trip. Encourage you to visit them. I liked this piece even if it is call a purse. I travel internationally frequently and this size is very popular with men in Europe. Also makes a great size for on board a ship. ie eReader, Passport, Wallet, phone, etc. Very nice man bag.

    My mother just bought me this purse at an art fair. I love it so much! The perfect size to hold the things I need, without being bulky and heavy. The strap is the right length to wear cross-body or on one shoulder. The design is simple and classic, and I can tell it is well-crafted with quality materials. The leather seems like it will last a really long time. I’ve only had it a few days but I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it. Definitely worth the price, and I love having handcrafted goods with soul! Highly recommend this purse.
