FINO Leatherware
« on: May 06, 2012, 02:41:51 PM »
hello ladies. i've been looking for a FINO thread here kaya lang wala ako makita, but if meron na just please link me to it. i've been contemplating kasi for weeks whether i'll get myself a FINO handbag. I know most of you alam na FINO is a filipino brand that specializes in leather goods. Their designs are very simple and nice plus I'm pretty sure na they're made of real leather talaga. What I don't know is kung durable ba talaga or not. I've searched for reviews online, although konti lang reviews, 100% ay positive naman. :)

not that i don't have trust sa mga pinoy made but i just wanna be sure kasi medyo pricey din sya. yung davos bag nila na embossed leather kasing-size ng speedy 25 is nasa 7,750 na and yung kasing size ng speedy 30 yata almost 9k na. but for real leather i think pwede na din, i'm just concerned with durability. maski kasi mga coach bags ngayon parang ang hina na ng quality. or maybe it's just me. ;)

so any of you tried na FINO stuff? please share. nangangati na ako bumili eh. hehe. :)

Meron dati thread pero nawala na ata.

I don't own a FINO handbag kasi namamahalan ako haha But I owned a couple of their small leather goods. I have a wallet pero di ko na ginagamit kasi mahaba siya at ang wallet ko ngayon maliit nalang. I also have their passport case, card case, candy case (I put my CC and ID here), pencil case, card case na may plastic envelope sa loob, portfolio and a pad holder. Ok lahat.

I also gave my dad a card holder and check holder. Gamit na gamit niya at habang tumatagal, gumaganda yung leather.

^^Hi Sis, I have a bowler's hand bag from Fino. Di ko alam yun exact model nung bag pero mas malaki sya sa doctor's bag (magkamukha din sila). I got it from Fino's sale, minsan nagsasale sila ng mga lumang style or may sirang kaunti. Yung akin ang sira lang nya is sumobra ng isang stitch ng sinulid na sobrang di halata naman. From 7k, I think nabili ko sya for 4k++. For me worth it sya kasi matibay, yun lang mabigat talaga sya :). I always wanted to buy their doctor's bag kaso sobrang namamahalan ako kaya swerte na natapat ako nung sale :). It's been 2 years since I bought the bag pero ganun padin ang itsura nya :).

sis heatherette, thanks. nakakatuwa nga din yung mga wallets nila tsaka yung mga organizers. sa isang color ang daming products, parang pwede mo i-collect. :)

sis mavhy, yung speedy type/doctor's bag nila ang bestseller yata. sabi sakin ng SA mga june or july daw ang yearly sale nila kaya lang parang gusto ko na tuloy lalo bumili like bukas na. hahaha. ang laki ng price drop ha. sana makapagpigil pa ako hanggang sale. hehe. nabasa ko din somewhere na yung fino daw is supplier ng ilang designer brands. i dunno if true. isa daw yung reason kung bakit wala silang website, considering na 20 years na pala sila sa market.

^Hehe swertihan lang talaga sis sa sale, kasi yung ibang sale medyo malaki yung sira or halata talaga. Dapat galingan mo sa pagpili at pag may napili ka na wag mo ng pakawalan hehe kasi for sure mabibili agad yun ng iba. Wow ganun supplier sila? Pero maganda talaga ang leather nila at mafefeel mong worth it sa pera mo :). Meron nga silang knock-off ng longchamp eh, mas nagandahan pa nga ako hehe.

May knockoff din sila ng Mulberry Alexa pero mahal ha, 20k na siya.

^^Yan yung mabenta sa akin, yung colors. Ang nateterno ko palang yung candy case at passport ko case ko, raspberry pink. Yung leather ang di ko materno terno dahil wala yung plain lang sa ibang designs.

whoa 20k? mahal na yun sobra. parang nakita ko nga yun alexa style nila pero dinedma ko eh kasi avocado green yata yung color. pero mahal naman sobra for 20k. hanggang 4 figures lang ako sa kanila if ever man bibili ako, hehe. di ko pa nakita yung longchamp knock off nila.  ;)

and ang ganda nga nung pagkapink nung isang collection nila ngayon. hindi cheap pink. :) yung pink yung una kong gustong bag kaya lang nung bumalik ako wala na eh.

^Yun yung pink na naco-collect ko ngayon haha Yung bright raspberry pink. Gusto ko nga nung portfolio ulit kaso baka magulat na tao sa akin at sandamakmak na pink na ang dala ko.

Ang mahal talaga, nagulat din ako nung tinanong ko yun, pink pa man din yung nakita ko on display.

matibay naman ang fino, 3 of my leather bags are from them binili ko years ago and still looks good. pero depende na rin kung maingat ang gumagamit. One of the bags na binili ko sa kanila kapag gamit ko lagi may pumupuri. Its a combination of croc leather and horse hair , bought it for 12k ata, so far pinakamahal na nabili ko sa kanila and i remember the SA telling me ilang piraso lang daw yung bag na yon.  My credit card case, passport case, planner , keychain are also from fino. The latest that i got , pink croc case ( envelope type ) for my ipad. Suki kapag christmas don na lang ako bumibili ng pangregalo ko sa mga bosses and ilang friends ko.

^Maganda yung iPad case na yan! Bibilhin ko sana yun pero I ended up with another pink envelope case din.

^^Pinili ko pink kasi madali makita sa loob ng bag haha

^Go! Pero hindi ka kaya sis magsisi sa sale? hehe

problema ko lang dun sa case na yon masikip na siya kapag may hardcasing pa yung ipad. medyo pahirapan ilabas yung ipad. fit lang siya kapag bare yung ipad.  feeling ko lalong gumaganda yung case na yun habang tumatagal.

mahilig kasi ako sa anything na croc leather, buti na lang sa fino meron mapa small leather goods hanggang sa bag.

i think fino's price is sulit kasi they also repair damaged items for free, kahit walang receipt basta product nila.  yun lang ang bigat talaga ng bags nila... pero i love fino.
And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but because conscience tells one it is right.
