A family member bought this for me from a boutique in Italy when I was visiting there. I had never heard of this Italian brand before my trip. It appears to be made from soft and smooth nylon. There is no tag on the inside that states what it is made of. I love that the bag is black (Of course!). I also like the repeating graphic print that says Oxus over and over again. This pattern adds visual interest.

There are a few other details I like, such as the chains across the front which represent strength to me. The hardware on this looks like aged gold, a very pretty and unique tone. I like the tassels. They are a fun touch and add some whimsy to the design. I'd say my favorite accessory on here is the large coin charm. It has a horse on one side and says the brand name on the other. It's very shiny and beautiful. It has a nice weight to it. It's not some rinkydink, cheap afterthought that they stuck on there.

It is a generous size, probably too big for my needs currently. I wouldn't call it huge bag by any means. It measures 13" wide by 10" tall. From the start of a strap to the middle, it measures 10 1/2". There are 2 zippered side pockets on the outside and 2 inside pockets that zip. All of the pockets are really deep.

I experience a REALLY annoying problem with the "snapped strap." When I used to put more stuff in this, sometimes the weight of my things would be too much for the snaps. While I was walking around, the snaps would open and my bag would fall on the floor. Kind of a poorly thought out design.
