I have always been a big fan of leather bags, apparels, and shoes. However, I find it is really hard to find nice leather bags that match my preference. I usually stumbled upon faux leather handbags. Sometimes, I found a nice leather bags which do not ship to my country, Malaysia. My hunting for a nice leather bags have always been associated with disappointment.
I was, indeed, so fortunate to be able to get a nice leather bag from MAHI Leather. They have quite a wide range of selection of leather bags which are dedicate for leather lovers. MAHI Leather challenged me with their tempting bags because it took me for a few days to decide which bag to get – for my Dad, of course. I chose to have The Classic Holdall in Vintage Brown because I noticed that my Dad really needed to replace his old black leather satchel.
The shopping experience was very easy and trusted. In fact, all MAHI Leather bags are made-to-order with excellently soft cow hide, a 100% cotton lining, and is finished with strong YKK zippers and premium brass hardware. I love the fact that they also offer to have the bag to put initials. The stitch works are perfect, too! Their shop delivers internationally, which means they also deliver to Malaysia. Perfect!
Here’s the best thing about MAHI Leather, they work together with FRANK Water Projects as part of their CSR project. For every sale of MAHI bag, they will donate $1.50 to help people to get access to clean water. It’s a good idea indeed. I’m so impressed with their concern on the needs of the community.
SUPPORTING FRANK WATER
MAHI Leather takes its name from the Mahi River. The coordinates, posted on our badge, 22° N, 72° E, represent the mouth of the river, where it joins the Arabian Sea in Gujarat, India.
For many this is a sacred river and in a country where 103 million people lack safe water its significance is more than symbolic; that’s why MAHI Leather donates $1.50 from the sale of each bag to FRANK Water Projects (Registered Charity No. 1121273), a UK based charity which has helped over 300,000 people gain access to clean water since 2005. FRANK partners with some of India’s best grassroot organisations that have a proven track record of working with local communities in improving sanitation and water quality.
My Dad was so impressed with the quality. He asked me twice to make sure that I was giving the bag for him. I told him that the bag has his initial, so it is dedicated for him. Yes. I haven’t give him anything pricey these few years because I was so busy earning money for myself (and family). I know what he loves to have in his collection (same goes to Mom, too!). I actually felt guilty because I couldn’t get Mom her favourite stuff yet. But, I am positively confident that I will be able to get her something, very soon… or real soon. Positively positive. LOL! *Fingers Crossed*
The only thing that I have to be frank is any deliveries from overseas are bound to be taxed by the Custom. I actually had to pay MYR38 in order to have this package to be released to me. As for the delivery, MAHI Leather delivered the package via Fedex, in a very big box, fit enough for the bag.
