B. Makowsky Canterbury Haircalf Tote | Leather Handbag with Animal-Print Pony Hair Inset

Posted on: Aug 20

Well, I can't really beat around the bush on this one, so I'll just come right out with my first impression of the Canterbury Haircalf Tote. Basically, it combines two of my least favorite fashion details: animal print and furry texture. The two aren't exclusively abhorrent to me, but I tend to dislike them when they're together.

Although I'm usually a fan of B. Makowsky handbags, this one really caught me off guard. It's not that there aren't any redeeming qualities about this tote; I just have a hard time getting past the obvious features of it. I'm sure there are many women who love the western-inspired look that haircalf provides, but I've never been on board with the trend. Perhaps I just feel that, as a native Texan, it would be seen as a tad cliché for me to wear.

That being said, there are a few admirable attributes of the Canterbury. First, it's not completely covered in pony hair. That detail is confined to the front insert of the handbag. Also, the shape of the tote is attractive and somewhat contemporary.

As you'd expect from the brand, the Canterbury has bold metallic hardware that catches the eye. For animal-print lovers who can't get enough, the interior is lined in B. Makowsky's signature leopard print lining. This tote definitely won't get PETA's seal of approval, but it will definitely interest gals who like a little western style.
