Innovation Handbag - '70s style leather pattern


The '70s are back! Check out the Innovation Handbag! It has a few updates and improvements over the '70s style handbags.

It still has the standard '70s shape with the retro style swing lock closure. And the usual round-ish flap, with the single large compartment that holds all of your stuff.

So what are the improvements? The Innovation Handbag has a built-in coin or card pocket on the inside, created by the extra-long flap. It has a narrow leather strip between the body panels and the main gusset (on both sides), which makes the main gusset look like it is floating. It is sewn, not laced, (unlike 99% of most '70s style bags), and it has a guitar strap style shoulder strap adjustment, so there is no buckle required!

This handbag measures 9-3/4" across X 8" tall X 5" wide. A good medium size that will carry LOTS of stuff!
