Minimalist elegance belies a secretly evocative interior. This refined leather tote not only takes a woman from day to night and from personal to professional, but is also a constant reminder of the truth about her identity as beauty in the eye of the Beloved. The words Beauty lies within you, hand-lettered and discreetly engraved into the unlined leather interior, are surrounded by a floral pattern of royal jasmine and native heart-shaped glyphs, designed from the garment worn by Our Lady of Guadalupe. Finished with a silk habotai ribbon and small cross of Swarovski crystals.
