For those of you who are looking for a classic leather bag, give up your “made in China” Coach habit and shop American made leather handbags by Merci-Fortune.

When I received the Charlotte Duffel in the Cerise leather, seen below, my mouth dropped open. The bag embodies American craftsmanship at it's absolute finest. As I carefully ripped through the box when it arrived, I was greeted by the faint scent of new leather. The sparkle from the gold hardware caught my eye and as I reached out to touch the supple leather, I knew other brands wouldn't hold up next to Merci-Fortune.
