So now with Osumuashi Pooh chan’s bag this is now possible and don’t let the cute look fool you, their design is made with the utmost quality and care suited for anyone who loves cats!
When it comes to man’s bags there is no other like Mansaw, and they have a couple of distinguishing features which separates them from the rest. Produced entirely manually they only make about 40 to 60 pieces of overnight bags a year, also it’s important to point out no all of their products contain their brand name although a bit strange, when it comes to quality you can be sure that they always deliver in that department, it is well known that they use luxury oiled leather imported from Italy which makes their handbags age with grace.
