This gorgeous short-handled grey Python handbag is designed by Glen Arthur and made from the highest quality of skins, It has a magnetic closing, two side zippers, with multiple pockets and zippered closing within the bag. This Python handbag measure 18″ long and 9″ high with a 6″ drop from the handle.
A genuine python handbag is a product of considerable distinction. This type of skin is considered the most sophisticated and exquisite of all the exotic leathers. Python skin is known for its color variations and for its elasticity; it is the warmest leather of the season and ideal for the manufacture of many luxury goods. Despite its apparent delicacy, python leather is extremely resilient, becoming a sort of investment over time, since it gains in beauty and prestige with the passage of time. Not only does the leather become softer and for this reason, able to shape itself more exactly to the model of bag, but its scales open naturally, highlighting the natural pattern of the animal. There is no doubt that a python skin bag improves with age, and instead of its natural beauty fading over time, it is perfected, so that we can appreciate the true beauty of this prized skin only over the years.
