Sizzle Strapz Leather Bags
Rich Bhata hand smiths all Sizzle Strapz bags in his St. Charles, IL shop from genuine cow hide and American buffalo. I've never felt the desire to lovingly stroke a cow or buffalo before--just devour them in ground and fillet forms--but the urge right now, it is strong. From Bhata's 12-1/2" iPad carrier ($249) to his 26" duffel ($1,499), I can imagine only sheer tanned luxury beneath my cheek as I snooze atop a Sizzle Strapz during my next bus or airplane ride. Animal hides are drool-resistant, right?
Bhata offers over two dozen bag designs in the Sizzle Strapz collection, all made from leather obtained cruelty-free in the USA. Well, as cruelty-free as one can be given that the end result is still death, I guess. Since each bag is made to order, buyers can request colors and thicknesses other than those shown online. I think you should go with gray. It brings out the green flecks in my eyes. And I prefer zippers and clasps to buckles, since the latter present an unwanted challenge to my kielbasa fingers every time I need to access my bag interior for money or more juice.
