The idea from Desterius from Nairobi:
The customer’s rating:
Am impressed with the quality; the craftsman did a splendid job. I have already shown it to some friends and were quite impressed.
The story of the custom made man’s bag for carrying documents to the office:
I am Grace from Kenya and I have a company that makes 100% leather and textile bags and accessories.
We are glad to work with you on the order for a document carrier. I have uploaded a few photos of our past products. However, if none of the above is fulfilling your desire we are happy to work with you on other suggestions. Kindly also suggest a desired color you’d like us to work with.
However, besides the margins which are in brown leather, in what material is the rest of the bag: leather or canvas?
I will be satisfied with the type that I picked from your list above in the same color. I would now wish to know the cost of the bag and the timeline to have it delivered. Am a resident of Nairobi.
We will do several improvement on the bag mainly using a metal zip which is more long lasting
We will use the green shade and tan leather finishing and improve on the backpack straps and leather finish on the front pocket
Looking forward to hearing from you
