Richly textured cotton, handwoven in a fair trade workshop in Guatemala, brings sturdiness and structure to this everyday zip-top tote. Details like soft, sueded leather straps are both pretty and practical. No stiff leather biting your shoulder even if you overpack, and no searching for a tiny lip balm in a bottomless black bag. Slips comfortably under an airplane seat, too. Interior slot pocket and zip pocket.
The tote was very well made, but the colors were not as pictured in the catalog. I wanted happier colors, so I returned it.
