Estados are a British brand who utilise Argentine leather to create beautiful, leather goods. the brother and sister team were inspired by their parents travels there and exposure to goods on their return. Estados means state of mind, moods or soul states and reflects their design process. they personally design all of their goods, oversee the manufacturing and are so confident of the products that they give a 10 year manufacturing guarantee. they arrive in a beautifully presented gift box, and if you are thinking of giving one as a gift you can get the leather embossed with yours or the recipients initials, which is a nice personal touch.
Everyone loves a good sale bargain, and despite me declaring that I love going to the ‘new in’ section no matter what is presented to me this was a fabulous bargain. Made of Grade 1, full grain Argentine calf hide and silk it’s a long-lasting, quality purse. It’s soft to the touch and packs a deep, classy purple hue. To get a feel for the size it’s W 4.1” (10.4cm) x H 3.8” (9.7cm)
The back features a small zip for your change, whilst the front is embossed with the simple but chic ‘Estado logo’ on a silver background. the purse may be small but once you see the inside you will see that it certainly holds a lot of cash and cards. in my opinion it’s the perfect purse for travelling, a night out, and for when you generally want a purse clear out- you know when they get bursting full of receipts and paperwork…that’s not a good look when it all falls on the floor!
The purse has space for 6 cards and features 2 hidden slip pockets behind the card slots, (I would probably use it for my id), a full length pocket for notes, and the previously mentioned zip-close coin purse on the rear.
The purse is secured with the popper on the front, but the zipper at the back ensures added security that you might need, alongside the hidden slip pockets where you would put your most important cards or identification.
This is such a cute, luxury purse that is ideal for most occasion, particularly that of space saving but still having the necessity for card space! For the reduced price of £50 you can pick up the real leather purse from here and thank me later!
