She captures the intricacies of the production, “The wood is a beechwood, it’s strong and it’s mouldable. It can withstand any weather and the leather is eco-leather. It is soft when you touch it, it also comes in different colours. The wood goes through twenty-one stages before you actually decorate a bag. It can be coloured in any colour you want.”

This bag is for every woman that likes good quality and wants to feel good about herself. Not every woman can spend $5,000 or $10,000 on a bag. We have seen designer bags that are ugly while so unbranded bags look so nice and cute. Julies Jules is for every woman that can afford quality, every woman out there really want to look good“.
