Madras, plaids of every color for spring and summer is the pattern of vacations, resortwear and summery attire. One would not think it was appropriate for Fall, but leave it to Prada to find a way to make it so!
Crafted of solid color and two-tone finely woven leather, Prada has created a line of Madras bags lustworthy of any bag lover. If you are a woven bag fan (like me) you will feel like you’ve been hit by Cupid when you see and feel these bags! The leathers are finely woven in India, then sent to Italy for final fabrication. These bags feature weaving all over the bag and straps. Various styles perfect for individual tastes!
