Village Leathers Chroma Leather Shoulder Bag Review

Sunday 25 August 2019

I love handbags. I remember my first ever handbag was a little Gucci pochette and I thought I was the bees knees at 17 walking around with it. Since then, I have learned to appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into creating beautiful leather handbags. I have quite the collection, and prefer to spend a little more on a quality, leather bag that will last rather than a 'fast fashion' piece.
Village Leathers are a brand which began in 1974, selling hand made belts, and now have a store in Covent Garden selling their wide range of belts, bags and much more, as well as of course, on line. Village Leathers create timeless pieces and styles, that are available in a wide multitude of colours and sizes. 
For example, the Village Leathers Chroma Handmade Leather Shoulder Bag, is available in different sizes, as well as being sold in ten different colours - there really is something for everyone. I opted for Slate Grey, as I figured it would be great for all seasons, as it can be quite a neutral shade, but some of the brights and pastels are to die for.
The bag measures 19cm x 15cm x 5cm in depth and has an adjustable strap of 128cm-137cm. The bag has a silver-coloured twist-lock opening which makes it super easy to get in and out of, with a matching buckle for making easy adjustments to the handle of the bag. Branding is minimal, with Village Leathers in tiny silver print on the back of the handbag. 
Even though this is quite a neat, petite bag, you can still fit plenty of things in there, and the tough quality leather, will be able to carry the weight of it too. I enjoy that you can use it as a shoulder bag but due to the adjustable strap, you can also make it into a cross-body bag, so you have a couple of options there too. Every stitch is perfect, with not one out of sync and so it goes to show their exemplary quality control. 
The Chroma Bag retails for £44.00, which for such a quality, leather piece, I think is excellent value for money. Leather handbags like the Chroma are built to last a lifetime, and only get better with age. You can find them online at Village Leathers here.
