B. Makowsky Bags
I've been seeing them around more and more. The leather is beautiful and soft, the prices are even better

It's weird, I had never heard of these bags and just picked up the Jakarta East/West bag. I love it! The leather is soft and it's really well made for $300.

I don't think they've been around for very long. What color did you get?

Bruce Makowsky is the husband to Kathy Van Zeeland.. the brand has been out for several years now, but it wasn't until recent lines that I think they have been gaining popularity.

I think depending on the quality of the leather would be the only reason why I would pick a bag up which was like this...
They don't look overwhelmingly spectacular, again potentially a designer who is probably charging a huge amount for something which isn't spectacular!

I see these bags at TJ's all the time. The leather used is incredibly soft and luxurious! The softest leather I have ever seen in this price range.
