These bags are not overpriced. It took me over a month to pull the trigger and purchase and I could not be more grateful that I did.
I have had a very difficult time finding a purse that can stand the wear and tear of daily, long hours, and being beaten up all day. I wear my purse all day everyday because my job requires me to keep my valuables on my person at all times. My rubs up agains a control panel all day and most purses (even waxed canvas) wear out within a year. I knew I needed to take the plunge and buy real leather.
I looked long and hard for my must haves:
Crossbody and handles
Big enough for my planner (4x9in) but not any bigger.
I wanted black with brown handles.
Made in America
This fit all my desires and has lasted the rest of time. Bought 2 years ago (I think) and still love it today. I wish I could show you the wear and tear (or lack there of).
It’s the perfect size to hold my essential items while be stylish.
Thank you KN. It’s perfect.
Oh. My. Ness! I saw a review on YouTube for a Kerry Noël red pull up tote and was immediately intrigued! I've been on the search for my "unicorn" bag for a while now. I want a tote style bag, not too big, not too small. Something with a pocket and a key keeper would be ideal (and this bag has both). Oh, and the "right" shade of red with some character. I have a lot of lovely, well-crafted full grain leather bags, but none of them were "just right". And then when I looked at this site, I saw that they welcome custom orders!
I emailed to see if I could get a crossbody in the red pull up leather and they said it would be no problem. Then I asked if I could get a closure of some sort for the top, and was told I could select either a magnet or zipper. I chose a magnetic closure. I also chose to customize the depth to 4.5”. Within 10 days of my initial inquiry, I had my custom bag in my hand and It. Is. LOVELY! The color variation is gorgeous. The handles and strap are thick but soft and comfortable to hold/have on your shoulder. Oh, and the shoulder strap has a lot of room to adjust shorter or longer. I also like that the hardware on the strap isn't chunky. I can fit my iPad in this bag along with my normal smaller bag items.
I'm really so pleased! Thank you Kerry Noël team, Thank You!
My new go-to bag! Amazing color and extremely durable. The cross-body strap can also be easily tucked in or removed making the bag adjustable and tailored for everyday use! So much storage as well, I definitely recommend! :)
