So I'm biased. Bottega Veneta is number one woven bag company in my books because of all its quality and softness. And this is another bag from them that scored big with me. This is a blue leather bowling bag with pleated ruffle detailing. Two handles, zip across the top to fasten (some people need this), and a zipped pouch on the inside. Shape is classic and simple, like a LV speedy bag. However, the waves created by the pleated ruffles are seductive in a Spanish sort of way. The bag is very ladylike, and the sophisticated blue color makes it have amazing character. For those who question the reason for a high price tad on Bottega Veneta's bags, they are not simply a few woven pieces constituting a bag. The value is in the intricacy and detail, the high quality and suppleness, and the style that would last forever.
