The "Goldilocks" of bags—and ideal for travel—we've got the sizing just right. Keeping your phone handy in the middle pocket, our Essentials Purse in Desert Tan with a crossbody strap is a no-bulk alternative for strolling around that music festival, exploring a new city, or letting loose on the dance floor.
This purse is big enough to store your essentials—wallet, passport, phone, keys, lipgloss and a little bit more—but small enough to grab and go with ease.
The two outside pockets keep your belongings secure and organized, while the middle pocket (fastening with a snap) means your smart phone is always accessible—which, let's be honest, is important to all of us. Finally, the crossbody strap is adjustable and removable, so that you can transform the bag into a clutch.

This product is made in José + Maria's factory in León, Mexico. A husband-and-wife team, José and Maria moved from Spain to Mexico and started their business in 1989. Making handbags in their kitchen, they invested $2000 USD to buy a leather-cutting table, a used sewing machine and a trip to L.A. to purchase sheepskin imported from Europe. Today, their factory is recognized as the top handbag producer in Mexico. Together with Poppy Barley, they developed The Perfect Handbag, which launched in December 2015.
