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.

Like others have mentioned I found that the zipper opens when you are holding it by the strap. The only thing I had in it at the time was my iPhone. I was also disappointed with the appearance (leopard print in my case) as it looked very cheap. I will be returning this tomorrow.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Like another reviews mentioned that the zipper would open up when using the strap. I was very disappointed in the leather due to the snake skin pattern it looked old and worn out. I sent it back.

Great texture and convenience
I ordered the python wristlet at the same time as the matching Soprano wallet and passport cover. My plan is to travel in style, and these pieces certainly accomplish that! I like the wristlet for its portability on a casual outing where a larger bag isn't needed. The top-zip feature makes it useful for inserting glasses or phone, besides being more secure as it hangs downward from the strap. Love the outer pocket, too. Soprano is my all-time favourite for leather goods.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Good - with some caution
from West Vancouver
I bought 2 of these - one for me and one for my grandaughter. I returned mine because when you are holding it on your wrist, the zipper opens and the possibility of something dropping out doesn't make sense to me. My grand-daughter will only use it for her phone, so not so much of an issue. She is happy with it and has the flower pattern - fun!
Perfect . It doesn't get any better
I purchased this in the Python Print and it is super. I use it for going to the gym to keep my membership and drivers licence with my cell phone all in a handy case. It works great and I don't have to take my bulky purse which gives me more room in my locker and anyone that goes to the gym know the lockers aren't big. This works beautiful for me

A Bit Short
By J in Orleans
from Ottawa Ontario
I ordered this in the Crocco. Wonderful quality but my S.G.3 is just a tad too long. I can force the zipper to close but I worry about it scratching the top of my phone. Please bring this back with modification of just another 1/2 inch as it's such a terrific product.

Can't Live Without it!
from Oakville (Ontario)
I purchased this because I wanted something other than a crossbody or clutch and this fit the bill! I can hang it off my wrist while shopping and I've managed to fit about 12 cards + my cellphone. For the cellphone my Galaxy 2 fits perfectly but becareful if you have a larger phone. Also, because my cell is so skinny I had the room for more cards but a thicker phone (i.e. .25"+) might be tight. Overall very happy I purchased this in purple croc!
