Patricia Nash Handbag Review: Rienzo Satchel

You’ll probably love this handbag if…

  • You like totes that you can wear over your shoulder or carry in your hand.  Although technically a satchel shape, it has tote-like handles.
  • You like rolled handles, a smaller purse, and a slightly rustic look.
  • You like a balance of structure and softness.
  • You like a light purse that doesn’t weigh too much.

You might not love this handbag if…

  • You like to carry a big purse.
  • You like flashy brand identification and/or lots of bling.

My favorite thing about this bag is…

I love the exterior color and subtle gloss (from the oil-rubbed finishing process), the velvet interior lining, and how it holds just enough but not too much.  It’s currently available in poppy red (shown), tan, and floral print.  As a bonus, the Patricia Nash Designs flagship store is located in Knoxville, Tennessee!  Shop for the Rienzo satchel on eBay, or see it on Amazon.
