I normally use quite a large purse when I am out and about so that I can carry change, notes (if I have any), cards, stamps, vouchers and any other bits and pieces that find their way in there! As you can imagine, this can get quite heavy at times, so I was really pleased with a Christmas present which I received last year.
The present in question is a Saddler Leather Zip Top Coin Purse with Keyring. It came in its own gift box making it look something really special. Since it was a gift I had no idea of the cost but a quick look on Amazon tells me that it currently costs £8.44 and is available in red, amethyst or light tan colours although the write up on Amazon does actually say that it is available in six colours. I assume from the picture at the top of this review black is one of the missing three.
The one I have is the red one and it is a really nice shade of red too. It isn't a bright pillar box red - it is more of a cherry sort of red so it is more muted and I have to say that I think it is the nicest of the three colours currently available on Amazon so my friend made the right choice.
The purse itself is made from soft brushed leather and it feels really nice to the touch. My main purse is made from a hard leather and so is nowhere near as tactile as this little coin purse.
The dimensions of the purse - when closed and empty - are 7.5cm tall by 9.5cm wide by 1.5cm deep although this is obviously different when the purse is full of coins and keys.
The purse has a zip top compartment for coins and this has a keyring inside. I have far too many keys on my keyring to consider this as an alternative but I have put a spare house key in here just in case. On the front of the purse there is a further pocket with a popper to keep it closed. As this is quite small and flat there is a limit to what could go in here but it is OK for a couple of folded notes or a few stamps.
As I have already said my main purse is the one that I use on a daily basis and has all my various bits and pieces in it. I normally carry a backpack with me as I have all my stuff in there that I use when emptying the RNLI collecting boxes so the large purse is quite at home in there too.
This new purse is the one that I use when I use my handbag and the big purse is a bit too big. I put a couple of folded notes in the front pocket and some change in the coin purse and it fits in my handbag a treat without taking up all the available room.
The other thing that I like about this purse is the feel of it. When I use it the leather feels so soft and the whole thing is just a pleasure to use. Of course it looks and feels so much smarter than the big one with all the bits of paper sticking out of it too!
I would recommend this purse - I love mine and I think it would make a lovely gift for a friend or for yourself!
The natural variations in texture, prevalent in the grain make this product unique and authenticate its genuine leather origin. Zip top coin purse for coins, tokens and change. Keyring inside. Front flap popper closure pocket to the front of the closed purse.
