I’ve been asked about the Senreve Maestra bag quite a bit lately after it appeared on my Instagram stories. I also mentioned it briefly on the blog once in a story recap. It’s definitely become a closet classic for both work and play. Before I dive into all of the reasons why I love it, let me give you an overview of Senreve. The brand was inspired by women who do it all and need a bag that was not only up for the task but would look great too. Senreve believes that you can have a high-quality stylish purse that’s extremely functional.
I’ve been using the Maestra bag for almost a year, but the Senreve brand has been on my radar for a few years. I loved their approach and how they focused on the everyday working woman. This made the product more relatable to me and how it can be used on a daily basis.
Quality: The first thing you’ll notice about the bag is the time and quality that went into making this handcrafted Italian leather bag. Everything from the pebbled leather to the stitching, you can see and feel the quality in the material. Having had my bag for almost a year, the bag is still in great condition. Due to minor wear and tear, the edges are slightly dirty and scuffed up, but they can be cleaned off with a cloth. The same holds true for the microsuede lining. The quality is top notch and I love that it’s incredibly soft and can be cleaned with a wet cloth.
Multi-functional Straps: One of my favorite features of the bag is that it can be worn different ways. The bag can transition from a backpack, which is great for a mom on the go. You can adjust the straps to fit perfectly on top of your luggage. This makes it a breeze to get through the airport. The bag also offers a shoulder strap. This is perfect when trying to grab something out of the bag while on the go. The straps make the bag extremely functional.
Options: The Maestra bag is now available in three different sizes — original size, midi and mini. You can also order the bag in fifteen different colors and two different styles of leathers — pebbled or mimosa.
Cost: Up until recently many of you may not have heard of Senreve. It’s not a household name yet. Although the bag is really well made, I think the bag is slightly overpriced. It’s a lot of money to invest in a brand that hasn’t built up a reputation yet.
Size: The medium Maestra is relatively large, especially for someone of my size. You’d expect to fit a lot in the bag, but with the structure of the bag, you can typically fit the bare minimum; computer, makeup bag, phone, water bottle and a magazine/book. It fits the same amount of things as my Fendi 2Jours Tote. A friend of mine bought the large Maestra bag in black based on my recommendation. However, She decided to return it because she couldn’t fit enough in the bag. She loved the design and style, but she wanted to fit more than her work essentials. She ordered from Shopbop, who is owned by Amazon, so she took advantage of the 2-day shipping and 14-day return policy.
I love this bag and highly recommend it. I use it all the time and it gets plenty of compliments, especially when worn as a backpack. The bag looks great and has enough functionality to make it worth the purchase. Whether you’re heading into the office or traveling with the Maestra, it’s effortless in its ability to keep you stylish and organized. Like us modern day woman, it manages to do it all! Can’t wait to see what else Senreve releases this summer.
