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.

Received my bag the other day in the olive color, just gorgeous. Never really liked green before but took a chance and glad I did. The olive is absolutely lovely. This is my second Soprano bag and am extremely pleased with both :)
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Soprano Pebble Leather Tote
By Addicted Shopper
from Whitby, Ontario
I purchased two of these totes last year when they were the S.S. They came with wristlets to match. My daughter loves the one I gave her in forest green. She uses it every day and it looks just as lovely as the day I gave it to her. Sylvia and her team certainly make an excellent product!
I bought this bag in olive and love the soft leather and the beautiful color. I can't believe that all these bags aren't sold out yet!

Pracical AND Classy
from Halifax NS
I ordered this in the bronze colour some time ago. I was delighted when it arrived, as the bronze colour was very understated and elegant. This handbag works with just about everthing in my wardrobe!The greatest plus of the bag is its size. I do not care for all those super-sized bags and this one fills a great intermediate spot. It is small enough to use even on more formal occasions, yet large enough to carry all my necessities -- of which there are many -- with room for a smallparcel or two. I recently took this bag to Europe and added a paperback, a passport, my mini tablet and a travel case. I even received compliments about the bag in Paris. This speaks volumes about the simple yet classy style!The best recommendation I can give is the fact that I quickly ordered another when it was re-aired. The olive is as nice as the bronze and will work with at least a three season wardrobe -- and if like me you wear khaki or beige in the summer,you can use this all year. GREAT VALUE

Design can be improved
Strongly recommend zip top instead of the magnetic closure this handbag has, to avoid having items fall out. Many of the later Soprano handbags have tubular handles, which are much more comfortable. Nice leather and design otherwise. Affordable too.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

I defiantly would buy from Soprano again
from Canada,BC,NORTH VANCOUVER
I have several bags from Soprano and love them.This Bag I bought as a birthday gift for my daughter and she loves everything about this bag, but the closure. I don't think these days one can walk around with an open bag or one that is not zipped.Please Sylvia think about this when you design Purses.
Great quality - poor design
This is my first Soprano buy and although I LOVE the quality, I'm very disappointed in the design. The purse is always opened and exposing the inside contents. I would've preferred a zipper closure. Unfortunately I will need to return, but I look forward to the next show as I will definitely be interested in purchasing again.

1st Soprano purchase and I am so disapointed with the closure. Not strong enough and bag constantly opens as your body moves. Love the leather and look but this lack of security means I must return the product.

I bought this in the burgundy and its beautiful. Have been waiting for this color for a while. I also bought the small clutch. One for me and one as a gift in the brass. They are such good quality! Very happy with my Soprano bags!
This is my first Soprano handbag and I bought it in the burgundy colour, but was a bit disapointed because I expected more of a deep wine colour. I love the leopard print lining but found that it was showing at the opening, and that it clashed with the burgundy. Apart from these negatives, I love the construction and details on the bag and I would purchase Soprano bags again. I do hope to see a true burgundy colour handbag in the future.
