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.

What a great bag. Thank you Soprano. Just a perfect size, not too heavy, and the leather is like butter. I ordered it in the green and it is such a nice shade. The bag is already spoken for if I ever get tired of it but I don't think I will.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

A great bag!
I bought this bag in black. The strap is just the right length to carry it on your shoulder or at your elbow. The soft leather is excellent quality! The zippers are smooth and it has the perfect amount of pockets. I especially like the outside zip. I love the lining; it makes it easy to find things at the bottom! I am considering ordering it in another colour. This is my 3rd Soprano bag and I am very happy with all of them!

i ordered this is the black and white. It is a beautiful quality bag and indicative of the great attention to detail we have come to expect from Soprano.Although the bag is larger than I usually wear, it has a relaxed style which seems to de-emphasise its size.The buckles on the sides are not merely decorative; they can expand or contract the bag's width by an inch or two. The lining is pretty, but the most important thing to note was that the material was not the crinkly, plasticised fabric which Soprano is using in some of the newer bags.A practical, no-nonsense style. The B/W colourway will ensure this will quickly become a go-to summer favourite!P.S. If you are thinking or ordering this and are being deterred by the washed-out green of the online photos, do not worry! My friend has the green model and it is a beautiful, vibrant shade.

I bought this bag in both the Orchid and Grass colours. I am absolutely in love with both of them. They are very unique colours and the stud detailing is absolutely stunning! What can I say, I'm definitely a Soprano lover for life. I believe all women deserve to own a wonderful genuine soft luxurious leather handbag. Go out and buy one now!!!!!!!!!

Many Many Compliments
I too bought this bag in Orchid when it was a showstopper and brought it out for spring this week. I have had non stop compliments on the colour and everyone wants to know where I purchased it. This is a very beautiful and functional bag.
Love this purse!
from LOWER SACKVILLE
I ordered this back in February in White with Black trim. Now that we are into spring & time for summer handbags, I took it out this weekend to use it. Just the right size & the leather is oh sooo soft! Love it.
I am in love
I purchased this bag in the grass color.I feel in love with it the moment I opened thebox. The color is gorgeous, the quality amazing,the lining is beautiful, and the texture issilky smooth. Everywhere I go, everyone commentson it (especially the color:)Thank you Soprano for such good quality bags
I love this purse!
I, too, ordered this purse as a showstopper. I don't usually buy large purses, but this is quite roomy without feeling as big as it is. The shape and detailing are beautiful and the features Soprano is known for are exactly right. I chose the orchid colour - it looks like tanzanite - and it's fabulous. I have purchased several Soprano purses in the last 8 years and highly recommend this brand. Thanks, Sylvia.
Speechless! what a beautiful bag Sylvia!
