Since I juggle three careers and being a Mom, I am always on the lookout for the perfect work/diaper bag that is both practical and stylish. Surprisingly, it has been difficult to find one. Thus, when I was introduced to Maxwell Scott Bags and saw The Rivara, which is described as a “large leather work bag” and appeared to be gorgeous from the online photos, I was sold instantly!
Maxwell Scott Bags is a small British company that specializes in one-of-a-kind quality leather luggage bags, purses, and accessories. All of their creations are luxurious and fuse modern style with traditional Italian craftsmanship. The brand’s beginnings can be traced back to a tour of Italy by the founder William Scott Forshaw’s mother Jacqueline. During her trip, she discovered a love for leather goods and conceived of a business idea: Maxwell Scott Bags. A tannery was then established by William in the heart of Tuscany using traditional methods with British design. Unique and durable, the full-grain, vegetable tanned leather ages beautifully over the years. William to this day continues to supervise the creative direction of the brand. Everyone of the masterpieces comes with a 25-year guarantee.
The Rivera has two large compartments; one with a zipper and the other with a magnetic clasp. It is perfect for those who have a lot to carry, but still want to look chic. Designed with a business women in mind, this stunning bag is great for work, as it can accommodate: files, books, folders, and a laptop. The Rivara can also be used as a shopper or a carry on when traveling, as it is an ideal size for taking on board a plane. This is the kind of bag that will stand the test of time and never let you down. It comes in three different colors and can be embossed with your initials for an extra special touch. I chose the color classic tan and had my initials personalized in gold.
Depending on which job I am headed to and if my son is with me or not, the contents of my bag varies greatly, however you will always find in my work bag the following:
- car keys
- makeup case
- magic blanket for Joaquín
What is always inside your work bag?
