My Umuragi arrived today!!!
I immediately photographed her and shared pics with a friend. This bag is built like a sexy tank. It will not hold evvverything you own, but the essentials will certainly fit into it's clean, sleek, structured interior. The style seems contemporary and modern to me, but still a classic LEGACY for sure. The finish is a matte black (not too shiny) which I love. The strap is a nice width and feels comfortable on my shoulder. She is just an overall awesome, well designed bag.
I found this site using key words "best constructed handbags". So now the search for MY Perfect Black Shoulder Bag Is FINALLY OVER :) YAYYYYYYYY! Thanks to Suzette & Love41.

In the native language of Rwanda (Kinyarwandan) “Umuragi” means legacy and that is just what this bag was inspired to become. I designed this bag because I wanted something that I would never have to worry about falling apart. Since this Umuragi bag doesn’t use a single thread you’ll never have to worry about things coming undone.
I love that this bag has a modern, contemporary feel to it; it's a no fuss kind of bag. The two roomy interior side pockets do the job well to keep things organized. I also love the vegetable tanned leather. It gives this bag great structure and has a beautiful natural sheen. It’s the type of leather that’s made to be worn and broken in. Because it’s thicker, it will get scratches or indentations a little quicker than the usual leather we use, but I think it gives it more character.
How do I wear it? I use this purse for date nights or church when I want to dress up or I am looking to dress up my outfit a bit more. It’s a little large for a daily bag or to be worn crossbody, but great for the weekend or a night out. As always, the purchase of this bag helps love others in need through education, food, shelter & job training.
