 I needed a new handbag to take overseas with me that looked good but was also big enough to fit my travel wallet and camera in, as well as my purse and the everyday paraphernalia that we all have to carry.

The Rosie Bag is also very roomy, I had no trouble fitting in my maps and tourist guide as well as everything else, my biggest problem was resisting the temptation to fit ‘everything’ in and making it too heavy to carry!.

My Rosie bag is almost 6 months old now and still being used constantly (and I am still receiving compliments, yeah!).
