To Sylvia, Soprano Handbags is a “Canadian Dream” come true….
Born and raised in the British colony of Hong Kong, Sylvia was taught all the proper etiquettes and manners that the modern world has come to expect from a French convent school girl. She’s an ardent admirer of performance arts, enjoyed being creative and was an enthusiast in dramas and plays that allowed her to infuse a lot of originality and imagination in portraying the characters. It was also at that early age that Sylvia developed a strong and passionate interest in arts and literature.
After graduating with a degree in English Literature and Sociolinguistics, Sylvia knew that she wanted to pursue a career in the fashion world. After she moved to Canada in the early nineties, Sylvia finally got a chance to fulfill her dreams when she and her husband partnered up with their long-time husband-and-wife friends, Jimmy and Florence Tam to establish Bertotti Handbags in Toronto, Canada. This is the time when “Soprano” was born…a name unanimously chosen for their top-of-the-line leather bags collection.
All Soprano leather bags are manufactured by Jimmy’s and Florence’s family-owned factory which has been in the leather goods production business since 1967. The factory currently employs 2,500 people, all of whom are well-trained, skillful and experienced craftsman in the leather goods manufacturing industry. All Soprano leather bags are designed in-house here in Canada, and assisted by the design team on the manufacturing floor who skillfully transforms the original designs into the wonderful handbags that you see today.
The Soprano line only uses first-grade quality top grain leathers which are supple, light-weight, and durable. All hardwares and supporting materials are thoroughly tested and only the best are adopted. Designs are fashionable as well as functional, with all details well thought through and each bag tailored with impeccable workmanship.
Soprano Handbags is truly the realization of a Canadian dream for 4 young people who shared the same passion and love for high quality fashion. They are, and will forever be, proudly Canadian.

A top loop would be great to have to hold on to or to hang it up.The leather has a nice soap-like scent to it and if the outer pockets came with a closure button, that would have been nice.It's a nice bag, but a bit heavy.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I bought this bag as an alternate to the quilted front backpack that I use daily. I had the quilted front bag for over three years when I bought THIS backpack. It is not a good bag for everyday hands free shopping. The pull tie closure and the flap are a production to use. The side pockets are a bit too small to allow me to feel secure about putting anything of any value in them. A second front pouch compartment would be better. The major problem is that the mesh back straps cut into the skin particularly on hot days when you are going sleeveless. They could be 1/2" narrower. Every backpack should have a back zipper pocket large enough to take a 12" wide and 10" deep wallet (in a perfect world - we may have a wallet slightly larger than Sylvia's long leather waller!). The zipper could be smaller, but the pocket needs a bit more depth overall for all Soprano bags, of which I think I have now bought seven. I love the brand. It is quality for the dollars. It presents well. I have used the quilted backpack for almost five years EVERY DAY and it still looks great with no rips, or tears, the zippers are terrific and the lining is perfect. Good job Sylvia! This one just needs a little re-tooling
Quality is superb
I bought this to take on the plane as it is just the right size whithout being big & bulky. I can carry all my stuff and it fits under the seat of the aircraft and I still have room for my feet. I sprayed this with leather protecter and any dirt just wipes off. One of my better buys.

By discerning shopper
I can't say enough about this back pack. The leather is of consistent fine quality, the size is perfect for a day pack or travel, the stitching is neat and even, inside and outside pockets are great for organization. I wasn't aware of the two hand pockets on the outside when I ordered but am delighted they are there. Couldn't be happier and am looking forward to using it.
