This gorgeous Brahmin is one of the rarest of this collection and it is very large, and spacious. From a private collection, it is in pristine condition with no issues.
Open the Brahmin zipper pull and you are greeted by the smell of clean leather. It is lined in Tan velvet-soft semi suede fabric and trimmed in Brown leather. Inside, there are two, leather trimmed slip pockets. Each of these pockets can hold the largest cellphones. On the other side is a single zippered security pocket with two slip pockets with one sleeved to hold the included strap extender or to hold a digital camera, key pack, or garage door-opener.
The two pen holders and the leash clip on the leather dongle is present. It is spacious enough to hold a tablet computer up to 8” discreetly with ease for the professional on the go. All of the pockets are spotless clean. The Brahmin fob in solid brass is zipper pull and it is intact.
The tapestry is not a printed fabric, it is genuine needlepoint that was created by hand. These were not mass produced, each was handmade in the U.S. and none are exactly the same which makes them truly unique. The quality is remarkable.
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. This Brahmin has the fully adjustable and removable strap. The leathers has that feel and the trim has that brilliant shine and weight. The bottom is also flawless as is the side panels. The fully adjustable strap is equally flawless. All of the solid brass gleams like a golden mirror and it rests on four brass feet.
The Brahmin Company was founded in 1982 at Fairhaven, Massachusetts 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. This is indeed a must-have Brahmin that will bring many compliments.
The dimensions are LARGE at 10 ¾ “L x 8” H x 3” D and the adjustable and removable strap is up to 42” long.
