Great bag!

by -

The leather is soft and have a really nice color! The size is just right to put my necessary daily stuffs! The zip wide enough to open easily. I loved it!

I've been eyeing this bag for awhile. Debating back and forth if it was too big for me. I've only carried clutches, but the design and shape of this bag is so unique. It finally came back in stock and I jumped on the opportunity to get it. The bag in person is gorgeous! It has tons and tons of room inside. I love the fact that it opens very wide and isn't super deep. It makes finding car keys easy. I cannot wait to weather this bag and make the leather even softer. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase and glad I stopped debating and just ordered it!

 

Leather is the headliner here ladies

Gorgeous leather! It's thick but soft, tough but lady like, durable but cushiony. This bag has it all! I got it when it first came out and now it's patinaed and the leather is darker, and is almost shiny, but not quite. I love that! The zipper opens wide and the inside is completely lined with pigskin that is light and soft. I like the two pockets inside for my phone and keys. I keep my bits and pieces in little pouches inside the main compartment. I love the drape of this bag and ease of carrying it. This bag will be in my collection for years to come, and I'm so happy I took the plunge.

This is my first bag from Love 41. I love the bag but wished it had a cellphone holder and a key clip.

 

Total satisfaction!

I just picked up my new Kivu bag and have used it for one day and already I am in love with it. The specs and video for it are spot-on and very accurate. The leather smells wonderful, the design is one-of-a-kind, and it holds the kitchen sink (if needed)! I would have liked a key fob, but can live without it. The handles and the nipple for the straps are perfect for everyday wear and even in winter will allow me to easily swing it over my shoulder in a very bulky coat. I can't wait for it to get that suppleness and used look as I wear it everyday. And the fact that its proceeds will go to such a worthy cause is a double bonus. I must add a word of warning to Canadian buyers - expect quite a hefty duty fee (over $100). But if you really want it, have the money, you will definitely enjoy the Kivu for a long, long time to come. A worthy purchase from some very nice and helpful people. Don't be shy. I'm glad I wasn't. Thanks Love 41 people!

 

My first love

This was my bag from Love41, and I can't say enough good things about it. The leather...oh my. The color is fantastic. It sort of changes color to go with what you're wearing. My favorite part is the shape. Where else can you get a bag with that unique look? It is so comfortable to carry, and the little nub that keeps the handles together? Genius.







P.S. If you find you like a little more organization, Amazon has felt organizer that fits perfectly.

This bag was inspired by Lake Kivu which borders Rwanda and the Congo in Africa.   The unique shape of this lake was discovered while visiting an island called Iwawa.  I was the first woman to ever step foot on this island!  Although it is a place of rehabilitation for men with hard pasts, I saw it as a place of redemption.  When we visited, we brought Bibles and shared our story.  900 of the 1,200 men came to know Jesus Christ that day & went from being named criminals to God’s sons.  The Kivu bag is a representation of that experience and memory that I will never forget.   



Besides the great memories, Here’s what I love about the Kivu Bag… It can fit so much and is the perfect daily bag when you have a lot to carry.  I love the super wide opening; if you lay it flat you can see all the way into the bag and all contents inside.  The leather is also very soft, comfortable and lightweight.  



How do I wear it?  This bag is a great neutral and I wear it with anything from jeans to dresses.
