Great bag!

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.

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.



As always, the purchase of this bag helps love others in need through education, food, shelter & job training.
