I'm a handbag freak. Most women are. So, when Jumeau approached me to do a review on their products I was excited. I was also leery. Although their collections looked really nice, I was concerned with the quality. I had won a handbag from another company on a blog a while back that I thought looked really nice, but when I got it I was disappointed. It was cheesy looking and very poorly made.
I picked two bags. One medium sized bag from the Now Collection and one large sized bag from the Institution Collection. From the Now Collection I choose the Fancy bag and from the Institution I choose the Florian.
Jumeau is a company based out of Missouri, but once you look at their products you would think they are in the heart of NYC. Their goal was different from most companies in that they wanted to design accessories that complemented your body. They wanted to utilize premium materials, designs, and craftsmanship while still being environmental friendly. Not only did they want to offer a 45-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee, but they wanted to offer a 5-year replacement warranty.
They exceeded my expectations. When the bags arrived I was amazed at the quality. I was also amazed at the size. They consider the Fancy bag a medium-sized bag, but I can fit my kitchen sink in it. It is a pack rats dream come true. If they had made this bag when Let's Make A Deal was still on television (do you remember that show?) I would have won - hands down. I love it! It features double outside pockets with a quick close clasp, a zip closure with antique bronze pull-tabs and hardware, internal zipper pocket, full internal organizer, built in key-keeper key chain, and adjustable strap.
The Florian in Pine was equally impressive. It is a fun, sturdy laptop bag for everyday use. I got a million compliments on it. Although it is not big and bulky, it will hold everything you need in your traveling office. I fit my laptop, camera, cords, mouse, and files in the bag easily without it being bulky.
Although I did not review a belt, they also have a huge line of fashionable belts like this:
