Nimes is an Argentinean company that we recognized immediately for their commitment to practical and natural quality. Their standards for vegetal-dyed and tanned leathers is a priority such that it reveals itself in the final product. The leather really is wonderful and will take on a natural patina and original story-line with use. The easy-access outside and inside pockets combined with the perfect, sit-up-straight dimensions make this the ideal, go-everywhere-everyday bag. Great price point too!
