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.

The zipper is cut off WAY to short and where the tabs are pinned down at each end the bag wasn't finished so it has holes in each corner at the top sides of the bag, If you were to put a lip gloss or pen in this bag it could fall out were it wasn't sewing across before it was tabbed down.. With tax + s&h the bag was $199.and change. Soprano you have let me down :( Not a happy shopper. Debbie
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

costs way too much but the size in okay but doesn't open up as wide as I would have like it will have to keep it now b/c I can't find the return forms
I was excited to receive the animal print bag. When I opened it I was slightly disappointed. The glazing makes the bag feel a bit like "faux leather". I contemplated returning it but I like the style so I kept it. I agree that the zipper does cut short, making the opening a bit tight. I love the overall size of this bag, and the length of the handles. This is my third Soprano bag, not as perfect as the other two, but I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from this line again.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Not as expected!!
Finally received the red floral bag on Sept 26th. The floral pattern looked like a botched up stencil job in my honest opinion. I didn`t even bother to check other details out, just packed it up and returned it. I`m sorry Soprano, but after waiting so long, this one was a real let down! Don`t know why the pattern looked so rich on tv, but it definitely was not what I expected to receive.

Would buy this again and again and again
Absolutely loved my handbag. I ordered the purple bag and am loving everything about it. It was just as described and the leather was so soft. I get comments on it all the time. Can't wait to buy another one very soon. Worth every penny. Thanks shopping channel.

from Stephenville, NL
I ordered this handbag in the black/brown as I needed a new standard black bag, and thought paired with brown, it would serve dual purposes. I was a little weary of the shape of the bag, but went ahead anyway as the showstopper price was such an excellent deal. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. This is not a large bag, yet it seems somehow to be bottomless. Great storage, very good quality leather, and the handles are adjustable and comfortable. I am very happy with this purse. Another great Soprano purchase.

I purchased the animal print bag. Really impressed with the overall quality and style.I do agree that the zipper could be wider.I'm very pleased with my purchase.
By Happy now
My first purchase, love the color blocking. beautiful bag, leather is suptle and will weather nicely with time. Good price for a leather bag, hard to find anything leather for this price....well made although my only issue would be with the zipper opening, not sure why the zipper was not extended more for a wider opening, hard to access a large wallet, a bit restricted, may give with time and wear and become less stiff and restricted. Love the color block look, has the right amount of room needed to carry everyday items...Hardware is simple and not over the top...bag looks modern but simple...not my last purchase....thanks Sylvia......
a great handbag....

I ordered this bag in plum/black. What a great winter handbag. The leather is sooooo soft. Lots of room in it & all the necessary pockets. I am closing in on a dozen of Sylvia's handbags, & I love every one of them & use all of them thru out the year. Keep them coming Sylvia....Thanks.
