Derin Collection Review and Giveaway

Derin's Story
Derin International dates back to a decade ago when Sara and Ersan moved from New York City to Ersan’s native Istanbul . While on one of their trips to the Grand Bazaar, they encountered small purses made out of replicas of traditional woven carpets. So taken with the beauty of the fabric, they were inspired to create their own fabrics and designs, more in tune with the American market. The response to their vision was overwhelming. Their new company was born and was, fittingly, named after their newborn son, Derin.

Derin International now exclusively designs the fabric and all the bags and accessories for their product lines that are still crafted in Istanbul, Turkey . Sara works with the weavers to create a color palate that meets the ever-changing fashion industry.

Now located in the beautiful Hudson Valley region of New York, Derin International remains at its heart as it was –– the individual vision of an international couple; a blend of east and west. Proudly, the company has grown to include a new and exciting line of jewelry that brings together the motifs of Derin's intricate patterns with bold, sleek design. Derya Jewelry, named after their daughter, launched July 2010.

My Review
I was recently given the chance to review a Rory Tote, as well as a Super Case in the Pumpkin Spice fabric from the Fall 2010 Derin Collection.

The Rory is a traditional tote with a vertical twist. I have decided to use this as an everyday bag since as I have gotten older my bags have gotten bigger and bigger because I have more things that I need to carry and the Rory is perfect size. Measuring 12" x 14" x 4", it's not too big or too small in my opinion. This would made a perfect school bag or office tote as well. The Rory has a a small outside zipper pocket and two large vertical slip pockets and a large zippered pocked inside, as well as double fabric shoulder straps and a magnetic snap closure. I love the large pockets on the inside. This gives me plenty of room to carry what I need and stay organized as well.

The Super Case measures 4 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1" and has a pocket which can hold a cell phone or other similar sized device with a flap closure. There is a place for your ID in the front window. Inside, there are three credit card slots, a pocket and a zippered compartment which easily holds all of my credit/debit cards, money and change that I carry around. There is a clip strap which makes it easy to attach to another bag or use as a wristlet.

I really loved the Pumpkin Spice fabric that I received but if this not for you, there are many other unique fabrics to choose from. I think it is a perfect blend of colors. The fabric has a great feel to it as well, inside and out, and seems to be very sturdy material. My coworkers agree completely also. They love both the Rory and the Super Case. I can pack a lot into both the Rory and the Super Case and between both of them I can carry everything that I need wherever I go.

Derin Collection also has eyeglass cases, jewelry rolls, headbands, belts, wallets, overnight bags, and many other types of totes and bags, all using beautiful fabric and designs.
