I’m so incredibly excited! I had the pleasure of collaborating with the amazing brand, Swatzell + Heilig, also known as S+H Handbags. I will be sharing their stunning white Amalfi handbag with you today. This company is operated by a mother and daughter duo, who shares a common passion for style and handbags, and ultimately, joined forces to create their very own handbag line. With a modest, but luxurious collection of handbags that are made in USA, these straw handbags are undoubtedly beautiful, but they’re also produced using high quality materials with excellent craftsmanship that exudes luxury and elegance.
The Amalfi handbag features a well-constructed tote design and is currently available in four colors: white, red, brown, and black. I decided to go with the white version because white is one of my favorite colors to wear for summer and I thought that the white color against the natural raffia is such a lovely combination.
The handbag is crafted from durable, yet lightweight and water resistant raffia straw that is handwoven to perfection, and trimmed in marvelous Italian leather. It measures 16″W x 4″D x 10″H, which is a perfect size since it’s not too big or too small, and is super spacious without looking bulky. Also, the 11″ strap is a great length — it fits nicely and comfortably over my shoulders, so it’s very easy to carry and a delight to wear.
I love the gold-tone metal hardware — simple gold touches give a chic and luxe appeal.
There’s also a freshwater pearl accent at the end of the tag charm — so pretty!
I really appreciate that there are metal feet at the bottom of the handbag. This is one of my favorite features because it prevents the leather at the bottom from getting dirty or damage when the bag is placed down — it’s the little things that matter most.
There’s a magnetic closure at the top center of the handbag for easy access. The interior features an orange polyester lining with a zipper compartment on one side and two pockets on the other; the material feels sturdy and is easy to maintain and clean.
This handbag is everything I expected and I’m so glad to have it in my collection. Its versatility and functionality, combined with the stunning and timeless design makes this handbag perfect for everyone and any occasion. Take it on vacation, to the office, or use it for everyday wear — it looks amazing no matter how it’s worn. 🙂
Tips on how to care for your handbag:
- When not in use, insert the paper stuffings back into the bag to help it retain its shape.
- Place the bag into the included dust bag for protection.
- Use water and a soft cloth to wipe the surface of any dust; add a gentle soap for spot treatments.
Check out how I styled my Amalfi handbag below! You can wear this bag with any outfit and it will look super cute. Today, I paired it with a pretty ruffle off-the-shoulder crop top, dark blue high-waisted jeans, nude heels, and gold hoop earrings.
