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."

This was disappointing...the description said it had a "woven" strap...which it does not. The inside color was a drab brown, online it is a nice red. And, the bag is way too small. Oh well...

This bag is cute esp the multi colored beige one, which I ordered. However, I wear glasses and once I put my small glass case inside, it was difficult to close and that would become annoying and also most likely break the zipper after a bit. 1/2 inch wider would have done it.

What a lovely pair of earrings. I was looking for something to match a mixed metal necklace with black and silver stripes together with gold accents. This pair is perfect. Well-made and very comfortable. Excellent value. Shipping was fast and efficient. Thanks for the great experience!

Several outside and inside pockets to put my cell phone, “cheater” eye glasses, cosmetics, change, folding money and so on. Plus my IPad when I need it. I wish I could say I travel light, but I carry more than I need, and this bag accommodates that. And its attractive in a casual sort of way.

I have two other colors of this item, that is how much I love it! The red is a terrific color and did not disappoint! More like a red wine color than a bright red, which was exactly what I wanted! No orangey overtones, which I do not like. Great bag, light and spacious but not too big for a 5'1" size 6 person to carry. Holds everything and more. Thanks Zappos!

Love love love this bag. I wanted something for traveling that was 1) big enough to hold essentials, but 2) not so big I would be lugging something super heavy around. The flap was a must because it’s secure but still easy for access. I also love the zipper on the flap because I can put things in that section that will be super secure (i.e. house key which I won’t need until I return, passport, etc). Perfect size. Will be cute for many years to come because it’s not Uber trendy. Total score!

The first one I ordered had a broken o-ring, so I had to exchange it. The leather is soft and the purse is a good size without being too bulky. I love the interchangeable straps, but I worry about the o-ring breaking in the future.

Soft leather, beautiful color, and perfect size for this busy mom. BUT, with one card in each card slot, change in outer pocket, and cash in the large zippered pocket, this wallet doesn’t even come close to snapping the two halves closed. I’m keeping it anyway and will just deal with this flaw. So disappointed as this would be perfect otherwise.

A horrible purse. The straps are awkward. If you want to carry it as a shoulder or cross-body, the adjustment buckle slides. It does not stay in place so it come to my knees as I walk. And if you carry it as a backpack, again it slides and smacks ya in the bum. The magnet that holds the purse close is not powerful enough to keep it closed. It is always flapping with each stride. Very annoying to say the least. It never came with a handle.

I didn't like this bag, I thought it looked and felt cheaply made. I own other bags from The Sak that I'm very happy with, but not this one. It also looked more blah in person, nothing special about it at all. I will say the leather was lightweight, but that's about all.

This bag is super cute and the perfect size for me. I do not like purses that are too big or too small. I just need enough room for basics like my wallet, phone, keys chapstick, a couple diapers, baby wipes, and maybe a little snack. This is perfect for what I needed and I love the colors and the little details like the braided zippers.

I really like this bag until I tried to put my things in it. I felt the opening at the top was far to narrow to easily access wallet, glasses and anything else a person might want to reach, since the bag is deep and narrow. It might work for some just not me. The quality was good and the leather was soft. I liked the color, I ordered the Slate Multi Woven. I own several Saks bags and have always been happy with how they have held up to everyday wear and tear.
