I love my pencil case!  I now look forward to meetings at work because it's an opportunity to get out a pen.

Since the day I bought this bag it has been my favourite. I used to only wear small cross-body’s since they are lighter, but this beautiful, soft, luxurious bag allows me to wear a larger size which is still incredibly comfortable.  I love it!

This is the most comfortable and functional bag I have every owned. The quality, craftsmanship and design are outstanding.  I also purchased 2 of the "katherine mini" pouches that keep me organized.  I am already planning my next purchase !

Perfect bag organizer! My husband confiscated this for his phone, headphones, adapters, cash, wallet etc. in his work bag. It is just the perfect size for all these things and not too big. The outside pockets are wonderful. Beautifully made with beautiful materials. Thank you!
