Beautiful, functional, exactly as pictured
Good quality stitching and everything else. I don?t suspect for the Velcro to come undone accidentally. Perfectly fits my 6th generation iPad with a case on and pen. My only concern is it may get noticeably dirty over time since it?s white, but it?s probably easy to clean (I mean, it was a firehose).
This bag is truly a work of art. It is stunningly beautiful and elegant while still giving that bohemian relaxed vibe. I bought it to wear to a wedding, but it will be a great complement to a pair of jeans as well. It is well made, although not rugged. Very happy with this purchase.
Win, win, win!
This purse is so well-suited to my persona in many ways. As a person whose work entails overseeing reducing, reusing and recycling for my workplace, seeing this creative use of wrappers warms my heart. As a creative person, Im inspired by the actual how-to in putting the wrappers together. And as a woman who has championed womens financial independence through micro-credit systems, its heartening to know that my purchase will make another life a wee bit better. Even though this was not a gift, it was a gift to me and I loved the packaging - recycled paper and the small figurine in woven in those traditional glorious fibers.
