If you have ever owned or held a genuine Brahmin Handbag, you will see why they’re so highly regarded. They are simply like no other handbag. The quality in these handmade treasures is impeccable. The leathers are the best-imported hides in the world. This beautiful Brahmin is the very rare and original U.S. handmade Tuscan Raffia Satchel. Very few of this model were made and even fewer in existence today.
One of the most significant features of this beauty is the fact that it is a true valise, the handles ride high and a valise never has a shoulder strap. This style is also mistakenly called a “speedie.” This stunning Brahmin is from a private collection and it is absolutely pristine inside and out. Not often do you ever see one of these in such splendid condition.
Made butter-soft Cowhide Leather in the color of Almond with the gorgeous Raffia weave, it is lined with the Tan Microfiber lining, and a Tuscan Leather pocket that is pure luxury. The Bronze topstitching is in place and clean. Open the mini flap at the top, pull the recessed, extra-long leather tabbed zipper, and the smell of a spotless clean interior and high quality leather greets you. It is soft and clean. The gleaming brass Brahmin fob is on the mini flap.
Open the zippered security pocket to see the clean, satin and suede lining. The two penholders and the key fob are in every Brahmin. Above the key fob and the penholders is, “Made in USA” stamped into the leather. Original, handmade Brahmins all had the USA stamped inside and had the luxurious, suede-like lining. The solid brass metalwork in every Brahmin is world-class quality you can see and feel.
This Brahmin is a very high quality, upscale handbag and should you own it, you will agree. The handles are flawless and supple. This entire Brahmin is clean and is beautifully aged. The leather have that brilliant shine and is butter soft with weight. No odors, and no stains, no wear on the piping, and no darkening. All of the solid brass gleams like a golden mirror and this satchel rests on four brass feet.
Brahmins are handmade in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and the company was founded in 1982 and was at first, made for only a few friends. A purse so good, a “Brahmin” would be proud to own it, as it went. It grew and the reputation grew until now, there is almost a cult following with Brahmins. Touch one and you will see. Own one and you will feel like an aristocrat. Brahmins in such pristine condition such as this are very rare.
This is a MEDIUM, spacious satchel. The dimensions are 19” L x 6 ½” H x 5 ½” D and the handles afford the formal 5” drop.
