    I LOVE this bag and am so glad I purchased it. I think fair trade products are coming up in quality-this is not your old school cheaply made cotton bag. I get so many compliments on it; I live in southern CA in a cosmopolitan area-so i use it daily, year round. The material for those who live in seasons, may not be 'winter wear', but it's definitely more than just summer season. The color scheme and pattern are elegant and upscale, more than bohemian. [I like bohemian myself, but just for perspetive for others, I mention this. Many fair trade bags are a bit too hippieish for many ppl]. Quality: This bag is so sturdy [it does not collapse when empty-it looks like the actual photo shows], the craftsmanship is outstanding! Zipper is holding up perfectly. No straggler seams or threads; I've had this bag for well over a year, and it still looks great. I'm careful not to soil it, since it would be spot clean only, but otherwise, it holds up very well. Could not be happier with this purchase, though I was hesitant at first and thought it was a bit overpriced.
