The Mulberry Effie Tote Obsession

When it comes to the latest purse trends, over-sized bags rank in the top positions. It seems that opulence and comfort have finally found a way to coexist in the fashion industry. Over-sized purses are not only very practical but they are also extremely stylish. The most popular such models are the totes. These bags are worn by women who either like big purses or need them for practical reasons. One of the most popular totes of this season is the Mulberry Effie tote. This purse follows the classic tote style and adds a few touches of glam such as the plaited handle or the Mulberry tree logo.

  • The spongy leather

It is a well known fact that when it comes to quality, Mulberry makes no compromises. The Effie tote is made of very smooth and soft leather. The spongy texture was obtained through a special process which gives natural leather a dimpled effect without ruining the tactile nature and the lightweight. If you are a true fashion victim, then you probably know that special items need to be regularly maintained in order to always look brand new. If you buy this purse, you should also buy the Collonil Leather gel. This is a solvent-free gel which will improve the resistance to water of the spongy leather. The gel will also reduce dirt marks and it will help you keep the characteristics of this smooth purse.
