The Sak

The Sak Logo
The Sak is a casual, California-cool lifestyle collection of hand-crafted crochet and textured leather bags, footwear, hats, scarves, belts, media accessories, travel and jewelry.

Friends from childhood, Mark Talucci and Todd Elliott both grew up overseas. Their love for finding and importing unique textiles was drawn from going to local hippie fairs in places like Brazil and Mexico, where Mark lived most of childhood. Both unenthused by their lackluster corporate jobs after college, Mark and Todd found inspiration during a trip to Bali, Indonesia in 1989 where they were intrigued by the extraordinary objects and artisan fabrics they discovered. Both natural entrepreneurs, Mark with a degree in engineering and Todd in business administration, they decided to start a business importing these "found treasures" from overseas to their hometown in San Francisco.

In 1994, the imported rattan bags were blowing off shelves at major retailers encouraging Mark and Todd to go a step further. The idea for The Sak brand stemmed from a simple, memorable, casual and relaxed bag with universal appeal. Staying true to texture, they created a singular bag from a unique Tightweave™ fabrication using hand-crocheted nylon string. Starting a crochet "craze," The Sak bag Style 120 was an overnight hit. It soon became one the most coveted items of the 90s coining the phrase "a Sak on every back."

I bought this for my teenage daughter for her birthday. She is very picky and she love this bag. It’s leather and I think it was good value for the money spent. It came with two other little bags.

This set was junk and definitely not worth $64. Unfortunately my kids threw away all the packaging, my fault, so I am unable to return. The purse strap was missing part of the attachment so it can’t be used. All three pieces are very flimsy, like something I could get at Walmart.

This is a really cute little bag with a lot of storage. I can get my phone in the front pocket, cards in the card section, a hand sanitizer in one compartment, and my keys in another (basically all I need to carry if I go out now). The strap is narrow but comfortable, and hits me right at the hip if I let it out almost all the way (I'm 5 ft 4 in tall). You can also carry it like a wristlet if you want. It's well made and made of real leather too, so it should last a long time.

I love the colors, the material and how much it holds. I had to return the one I originally bought, because the zipper ran off the track at one end. Both sides of the zipper weren’t securely closed or sewn together, therefore the zipper toggle became unengaged. I called Zappos and the purse was replaced and I sent the defective one back. I spoke to a great costumer service representative!

I love this bag. Ended up using a small tote bag organizer inside to keep it upright, otherwise it had very little structure to keep it from flopping over.

I like the size, it looked like it would be larger in the pictures, even with the measurements. It is perfect. Nice leather, and a great wine color. The only thing I don't absolutely love is the black interior. Hard for these ole eyes to see stuff inside. Overall, I do love the bag, nice style with outside pockets.

Very pretty little purse. I like the many pockets, enough pockets to organize the world of stuff I like to haul around. BUT if I do put in everything that I would like (3 check books, a bunch of receipts, all the card slots, cash, a bunch of change), then the zipper strains to close and the purse looks stuffed. Pair down to only 1 check book, and it looks fine. The phone pocket is plenty big even for a huge cell phone. I am still keeping the purse, just I will use it as my travel purse when I like to pair down my stuff.

I've had the Keira Hobo for about two weeks now and, so far, I love it! The size is great - plenty of space without feeling like I'm carrying a duffel bag or something. The leather feels really nice. I like the lining and that the pockets are made a different color to help them stand out against the lining. I only have two very small concerns. One: it'd be nice if one or two of the outer pockets had the ability to at least someone close them so that if the purse gets upended (which is sure to happen if I have it as long as I hope to), everything in the pocket doesn't spill out. Two: I'm a wee bit worried that the strap will get worn and weak as it doesn't feel reinforced at all, but it's hard to know that without significantly more time. But really, overall, I'm very happy with it!!

I absolutely love everything about this leather crossbody handbag - the tobacco color, the style, the all the great features. I have been searching for one like it for a very long time. However, I am having to send it back because it is too small to accommodate my needs. The overall measurements: bottom width: 9 in, depth: 4 3?4 in and height: 8 in were not the problem. I ran into difficulty because of the design of the bag has the placement of the hardware for the straps and the zippered top opening made the access into the bag's interior less than the 9-inch width of the purse. If the bag had closed by just the flap, then it would not have been problematic. I hope that the designer will consider making a similar saddle bag that is slightly wider by about 3 inches; or, eliminate the zippered top and just have it close with a flap with some kind of fastener. Otherwise, I highly recommend this bag because it is gorgeous!!

I love the look and size of this purse but I have not even used it three full weeks and the "leather" is peeling. The coating is peeling off like old paint and I am very angry that I have a ratty looking purse within 3 weeks of use. This is not a particularly expensive purse when compared to high end, but it certainly is not cheap, and for $170 I expect it to last at least a year, not 3 weeks.

The leather part of the bag is a lovely color, and quality. The brown, woven handle, however, lends an air of low quality to the bag. The patterned strap shown in the photo did not come with the bag. I am returning it.
