Featured Reviews on Eco Friendly Tote
I like this in person even more than the pictures. Love the timeless, casual, global vibe. I Love that the black in the fabric paired with the brown leather give it versatility. The subtle pattern will work with other prints in my outfits. The strap length is perfect for the shoulder bag I prefer. The size is great for me. Generous but not into the tote bag category. Looks well made. I am excited to use it all summer. 2 small issues... for me, more and larger internal pockets would give it more practicality. I might work with a seamstress to achieve that. The leather on one of the straps is missing the dye in places. Im just going to ignore it rather than take a chance on anything I apply rubbing off on my clothing. Still a 5 star offering for me!
