    Michael has a natural gifted seance of Taste combined with an unbelievable understanding of color.
    Place that in combination with a passion for ethical environmentally responsibility, how can you go wrong?
    I am never disappointed. From Michaels hand bags to the over the top amazing hand crafted leather flowers.
