Style: 33554536 Color Code:
Slouchy quilted leather tote with adjustable shoulder strap that easily hooks on and off. Etched hardware rings. Fabric lined with interior zip pocket and zip closures.
I ordered this in the brown, I was disappointed with the color as it is not as the photo shows at all...I am a loyal lover of FP . this is probably the only time i have not been thoroughly thrilled with my purchase. I am on the fence whether I will return or not..with that being said quality is nice and I love the size.

Not same color but love it anyway!
I ordered the brown tote and like a previous reviewer noted it is not a rich color brown, more camel color. But, I really like it. In fact like it so much going to purchase another one in black. It is large but, fits my needs. Large enough for all my stuff, book, water bottle and sweater, just in case. Wish it had a second pocket on the inside. In regards to smell, smells like leather. Definitely worth the sale price.
Before I purchased I read the previous reviewers that simply adored the bag. I was also aware of the lack of zippers and compartments inside but with the sale price I figured I'd give a shot. It arrived today and I could not be more disappointed. All the metal pieces are on the bag are beginning to rust and the top zippers are so rusted they cannot be opened without severe pulling, which I am afraid if I continued to try will just rip the bag apart. Apart from the defects the function of the bag is lost on me as it's really long but the straps on top are not and due to the rusting the cross-body strap (which is no where near long enough for this tall girl) cannot be moved. I will be returning it.

Grove Tote in Brown
I was so excited to receive this in the mail and was expecting soft leather and a rich brown color but this is not what I received. The leather was stiff and smelt bad. The color was a very dull lighter brown and not at all like the rich vibrant brown the photos show. The two sided zippers are unique yet functionally awkward. The bag was pretty deep and roomy with only one zipper compartment inside. Quality was just ok even for the sales price. My expectation was for the leather to be soft and the brown color to be the same as the photos and this is just not what I got. I'll be returning. I truly wish Free People would stop filtering their photos and provide accurate color shots....it'd save a lot of time and money returning items that don't match the pictures.

I'd give it 10 stars!
I got this bag in black as I needed something basic, although the brown one is definitely more eye-catching and visually appealing due to the added color texture.That said, black is still gorgeous! The leather is rich and supple, the hardware is substantial (not flimsy at all), the zippers slide smoothly. The size is just right - the bag is roomy, but not at all bulky. Not too big, not too small (unlike most FP bags). It does lack compartments, as mentioned by the previous reviewer, but the quality and look of the bag compensates that minor flaw. The bag has two handles and a longer strap that can be extended to wear it cross-body style. I definitely recommend this bag - it's amazing! (especially in brown color :))
wish there were more pockets
i do really like the quilted design of this bag. for some reason, i thought it'd be fluffier than it really is, probably because i was expecting the quilt to be more padded, which it isn't. i like that it has both the shoulder straps and the removable cross body strap. what i didn't notice from the pics was that the closure is actually 2 zippers meeting at the middle. one small thing i wish it had is more pockets. it has just the one zipped pocket on the inside, but it'd have been nice to include small convenience pockets for phones etc.
