Today is a simple blog, but I would like to share some photos of my favorite new Maria Maleta bags.
This is a beautiful backpack/handbag that gets extra brownie points because it’s reversible. It can be worn with red suede or brown leather on the outside.
I’m a die-hard handbag fan. Some women like shoes. Some women like makeup and accessories, but for me it’s all about bags.
I’m a big fan of backpacks because I always want to have my hands free. If you don’t have kids in your hands, you have a camera, a dog, or shopping bags, but you don’t have the patience for a handbag that keeps slipping off your shoulders!
Just like finding a beautiful handbag, finding a beautiful backpack can be difficult. Most designers seem to think that backpacks don’t have to be nice because they are meant to be practical and durable, but I disagree!
Maria Mareta is a small brand from Porto, Portugal. This brand was founded by two women who believe there are two sides to every woman (and we think most men agree!). We have a glamorous side and a casual side. You can switch between practical and cute in an instant. Maria Maleta reflects this with its versatile bags that can be used in many different ways.
From the moment we choose our raw materials, through every step of production and packaging, we treat your Maria with love and care and want to show you our gratitude for trusting us. I can. Your bag is always a good partner, we taught her that. And your bag, it’s also our dream. Thank you for your contribution.
I love that the bag is versatile, but I also love that it’s value for money. The price of one bag is about 2 bags! And this bag is very nice. I just want to stroke it, put my head inside it, and breathe in that gorgeous leather scent. Although it is thick and sturdy, it feels very soft and cute. (I know I said I’m a bag person, but I’m really enjoying this bag!)

Disclaimer: I was given this bag as a gift, but was under no obligation to write a review. I really liked this bag and wanted to share it!
