It is not impossible to find a rather good bag in a shop. Has happened to me, too. However, a shop bag usually "has its way" with the owner – one has to conform to the bag and accept the quirks it may have.
When you come to me for a bag, it will be tailored for you. You will have your way – as simple as that.
Take a look how we have put the material info life and made the bag like the owner from the portfolio.
