I was admiring this one online and unexpectedly found it in my new FP Bethesda MD store. Happy Mothers Day for me! The strap appears sturdy. I've already used it once and it feels great on your shoulder. As an earlier reviewer stated, I'm a bit concerned about the lining being a bit thin but I was more than willing to take the chance. Super sized with cell pocket and larger pocket inside. Mine has a beige lining with is unique and makes it very easy to spot things. I'm very happy with my purchase and new Bethesda store!

I've never been so obsessed with something. This has to be the best thing i've gotten from free people, which says a lot, free people being the store of my dreams. The bag is so light weight and comfortable to carry around. It seems to hang on my shoulder just perfectly. I've had it for a few months now and use it nearly every day. It's held up pretty well, except for a slight tear on one of the patches (it looks almost as if it belongs though.) If you're even considering making this purchase, i say go for it. You won't be disappointed.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bowie Adorable, beautiful, words can't describe...
I ordered 2 of these... One from the San Jose,Ca store and one online that I guess shipped from New York... They are both different. The online one arrived today. It's absolutely beautiful. It has colors similar to the picture of the bag on the left (greens w/a little blue). The other one from the store looks similar in color to the one on the right with softer hues and more reddish/pinks. Both have different fabrics and are not the same. I love them both nonetheless. Plan on returning one but I can't decide on which. I just might keep them both! They are so unique and I don't think I'll find nicer bags. I highly recommend as I'm sure they all have beautiful fabric.

Although they reportedly vary, the fabrics on my bag look very much like those shown in the photos. The bag is HUGE so worked great as a carry-on for travel, but I've also carried it as just a handbag where it's the perfect accessory for casual day-to-day outfits. The pockets/compartments are nice for helping to quickly find things, and I love the sturdy leather strap. My only concern (and hence the 4 stars rather than 5) is that the lining is pretty thin, and I'm quite worried about it tearing away from the magnetic closure.

I love the outside cargo pockets with studs. I might sew in some magnetic clasps like the main compartment has though. The leather handle is supply and great quality. I love the silver rings on the straps to hang my keys and junk on. All of the material used is soft and matches everything I wear. LOVE this bag! Holds my notebooks and my yoga clothes and my water bottle no problem.

I am going to have to disagree with the previous review. It is what it is. It's a Vintage Kanta Bag....and that's what you get! I went to the store to purchase it (My first visit to a Free People store! <3, love, love love Wicker Park!) so that I could choose my bag myself. I knew my bag immediately, I found one with colors that make me smile, and I love the kitschy fabrics, the colors are bright and the patterns are so fun. And I can't find any stains. I love the two outer pockets, so handy for my keys and such. I can easily fit my hand in the pockets with room to spare. And yes, the studs on the pocket are just studs...but the bag is made of scraps, so....... Great drop on the strap. I can carry it over my shoulder and no slipping off. If your look is boho or you are just a hippie at heart, you will love this bag. I am going to wear this bag out!

I have to admit that I am obsessed with Kantha. I have 4 Kantha dresses from Free People's sister site. And anytime I am at the flea market and see a reasonable piece of Kantha, I snatch it up. When I saw these bags, I knew I had to have one. I also thought it was a great price for a vintage Kantha bag.
So, I ordered three so I could choose one and send two back. They came yesterday and of course, in my secret heart of hearts I was yearning for the gorgeous pink one the model is wearing. All three that came looked very similiar. Much more like the multicolored darker bag in the pictures. The bags are very shapeless, more like a giant beach bag than a purse. I also found the lining and clasp to be flimsy and I do not know how long it will last. However, the vintage Kantha is gorgeous. Every bag that came had at least one patch that had some sort of stain on it, so be aware this is vintage used fabric. I am keeping one of the bags, because I think it makes a great carry on for the trips I am taking this year. It is not nice enough to use as an everyday purse. And I hate, hate, hate the cheap beaded studs on the pockets. It really cheapens the "purse.".
It is still a really cool patched bag, but if I did not know it was vintage fabric or how much it costs, I could mistake it for a bag from the store with the giant bullseye.
