Made in Italy. This is the single gusset version of our famed "stringer bag". The name is supposed to imply that you are always ready for anything. Life of the globe-trotting journalist was unpredictable. Life today is kind of that way. You may be at home, you may be in a coffee joint, you made be onstage with the panel, or in the boardroom. Wherever you find yourself your work tools will be there, organized and ready for you. "Dolce" leather is an Italian vegetable-tanned hide that is hand-stained to a rich dark brown color. It is tumbled to make it soft. Antique brass hardware gives this a subtle "wow" factor. The bag is full size, but light in weight.
