Another shop I must visit when I am in the Philippines is FINO. I love their gorgeous leather and the amazing quality of their products! They provide a lifetime warranty for their leather, which tells you that is how sturdy their leather and workmanship is! Recently went there and bought a few amazing items. Read on to see what I got!
White embossed leather with green lining.
Davos Big CLI
I’ve wanted a white bag for the longest time except each one I see stains easily and I have to be honest with myself… for such an OC person I can get really dirty. And I need a bag that can take a lot of wear and tear. After all I travel a lot. During my trip to Manila I made the mistake of using my gold leather Coach bag. The handles’ gold color faded. =( That bag was definitely not for traveling. This bag however meets all my requirements: sturdy as hell, not easily stained (thanks to gorgously embossed leather), spacious and heavy duty (can take a lot of weight). Best thing about it is that it has the quality of a Louis Vuitton speedy but the price of a Ninewest bag. AWWWWESOME.
Slim calling card holder with orange lining
Basic Card case
They have a really cute selection of calling card holders. The one that I was really attracted to was the hot pink leather with orange lining. It had such a Kate Spade look (which I love!) but the thing with really soft leather is that it gets really dirty quick especially if it’s getting juggled inside your bag with your make-up kit, wallet, ballpen, etc. So I opted for this embossed super thin calling card case pictured above. Perfect for a credit card, calling cards and a few bills for a night out using a tiny purse!
Red Luggage tag
Again embossed leather to handle all the wear and tear that your luggage goes through (ergo your luggage tag too). I got it in red to match my black and red luggage and red TSA locks!
Fino leatherware are great gifts! If you let the saleslady know that you are purchasing a gift, they provide gift box, bag and card. Love. It. Below is the matching cardholder I got for TD.
GOOD TO KNOW:
Once you’ve bought your first FINO bag, you get a 10% discount on all future purchases. Amazing right? Ask the saleslady about it on your next visit to FINO.
