Artisan hand-made Italian designer bag

Which gal doesn’t dream about owning a designer bag? Buying something online can be difficult, especially when it comes to such personal items like a designer clutch or purse. When you are like me, I search around to read a review. I want to see the inside and know what easily fits into the bag and whether the quality is worth it’s price. Yes, and I want an original.

I feel so lucky that Uno Alla Volta asked me to review this stylish clutch/purse designed in Italy. It is made in a beautiful tan suede with hand-trimmed fringe and seam details. Believe me, the material is so much nicer than the photos below can catch it.

A hand-made by artisans

The sister artists Elisabetta and Alessandra masterfully handcraft these stunning pieces, one at a time in the tradition of their family’s business in Florence. Thus, each piece is as unique as a fingerprint, as no two handcrafted items will ever be exactly the same. This means that the piece is perfect as a signature item when you create your own personal style.

High quality, roomy Florentine suede fringe clutch/purse

The suede leather is thick and soft. The seams are hand-stitched, made nicely so they contribute to the great unique design of the clutch. The bag closes with a sturdy metal zipper. The interior of the purse has a lining of an elegantly looking fabric and has a small side pocket with zipper closure for money, ID or credit cards. The pocket is large enough to even hold my cell phone. The pocket is stamped Uno Alla Volta. The purse measures approximately 11 inch times 19.75 inch (about 27.94 cm X 50.17 cm) when open.

Florentine suede fringe bag can be styled as clutch or purse

This unique bag can be worn as a clutch (see photo below) or purse (see featured photo). When worn as a clutch, the interior compartment is large enough to hold all the items one needs when wearing it as a clutch for going out (see zoomed photo). When styled as a purse like in my OOTD, this fringed beauty can hold a normal size wallet, keys, phone, small pencil/cosmetic bag, medication, and sunglasses. This means buying this combined piece is one investment for two purposes.

You won’t get a clutch/purse of this quality for this price anywhere

The Florentine Suede Fringe Clutch Purse is currently on sale for just $69.99. It’s usual price is $198. Even at this normal price, the bag is still a bargain.

In summary: I really love this Uno Alla Volta bag. It is made of high quality material in great craftsmanship with an ageless design, made to last. Add this bag to you wardrobe. It’s a bargain, as you won’t find a designer bag of this excellent quality for this low price anywhere else!

P.S.: These sisters also make amazing tote bags.
