Cartagena, Colombia's architecture, culture, history and people define this old fortressed city. I walk past the home of Gabriel García Márquez, dreaming of Love in the Time of Cholera. The summer heat is all consuming as I travel down the narrow, winding cobblestone streets seeking my own inspiration. Casa no. 3, a small home on a side street, captures my attention. The front door's design, color and vintage lion knocker tell me without entering that someone of importance to this community, someone with standing, someone with style, lived here hundreds of years ago. But among an array of colorful doors with elaborate knockers, this door is not seeking to be noticed. Only those who travel their own path would ever find and experience its classic beauty. Here, at Casa no. 3, I have found the inspiration for Sandra Cadavid.

Named after Giuliana Rancic, its first owner, I designed this tote to have a timeless, yet classic vintage design. Made from custom dyed high quality leather and vintage, custom hardware, the Giulliana Tote is great for fun getaways or spontaneous weekend outings. Also available in Black on Black.
Each handbag is handcrafted from alta gamma leather, using colors reserved only for my collection. I selected the leather for its quality, color variation, and striking appearance that becomes more distinct with time. My bags also include custom designed hardware that, depending on the bag, is 24 Karat gold-plated, silver-plated or a vintage finish. My partners in Cali, Colombia construct all the handbags by hand; a laborious process with results that are unmatched in the industry.
I maintain a small inventory of the bags, and am able to ship any bags in inventory at the time of purchase.
