At this point, if you’ve been a bag lover for more than the past fifteen minutes, you’re used to a sizable markup for python. Some types of snakeskin, most notably watersnake, can be had at prices not far above those of regular leather, but python generally commands big bucks. For instance, the difference between a Chloé Paraty in leather and the same size in python is a solid $2000.

Don’t tell that to the designers of the Abaco Jamily Python Crossbody, though. This bag might not be from a big-name designer, but the materials used are a nice reminder that it’s not just the name-y labels who can make a fine exotic bag. The kicker? It costs barely over $1000.

The bag isn’t all python, but that’s a pretty big piece of lovely natural snakeskin, if you ask me. The shoulder strap also has significant python details, and that’s how I would carry the bag – forget the crossbody strap. I’d love this bag even more if there were a black and grey (or maybe metallic gunmetal?) color combination, but as it is, it’s a little luxury for a lower price than one might expect. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $1025.
