20 steps on how to make Longchamp Heritage

Ever wonder how Longchamp Heritage was made? This bag really catches my eyes, but it’s worth 50,000 Php or at least $1035. This bag has been going around the online selling world and was sold for Php 5,000 and I told myself what the heck! This bags is a work of art and really worth a every penny, but not Php 5,000. That is why I check Longchamp’s website on how this beautiful bag was made. And by the way this is very different from the slouchy Le Pliage and Neo because this is pure leather and every detail is done by heart.
