I had been eyeing this bag for the better part of forever and finally decided that I could no longer live without it. Its a lovely, WELL MADE bag - very strong. I carried books and some heavier items in this tote around Boston and it was comfortable and the bag was just fine. LOVE the longer strap drop. I do agree with other reviewers that this bag could use either a zip closure or magnetic closure for added security - but its perfect other than that - very unique. Now, this bag has been available for years but the thing is - I think it just became somewhat trendy with all the tribal-inspired items that have come onto the market. That is not why I purchased this - just noting that its now fashion forward. Great bag for everyday use. Looks great too.
a favorite bag of mine!
Love this bag...it s a perfect size for air plane travel (magazines, book, computer fit inside while still being able to put it over the shoulder) I have used it for 3+ years and it is in great shape! I have a friend that bought hers years ago and she still loves hers as well.
Very pretty and is a great size for every day!
I really like this bag! It has an outsize zipped pocket where I can easily fit my wallet, phone, and keys. I am using a small pouch inside for the loose stuff just to be safe because the bag has no closure. The bag does not have any lining but it is thick enough to hold my books, light laptop, water bottle, and snacks. It looks very unique and people often compliment me on it. After 2 years of wearing it, some of the stitches came apart, but it only took a minute to fix it up with a needle and some black thread. I washed it by hand with mild soap a couple of times and laid it flat to dry and it help up great. It's very casual and goes with every outfit I have. Overall, I am glad I got it.
Such a sturdy bag
I have had mine for several years and it is holding up very well. Many people comment on what a handy bag this is!
