Some things to know about the Ricky (because you know when you walk into the room toting this amethyst croc number, people are going to ask questions): It takes 10 to 12 hours to complete one. All the work is done by hand. The purse is sewn together inside out, then two people are needed to flip the completed bag right side out. All of that is according to the company. Based upon my personal inspection, I can tell you that it opens really wide and stays open, so you can easily load your stuff and/or find your wallet at the bottom (if you’re me).
