Style: 29149960 Colour:
Printed canvas tote bag with a faded, use-to-perfection look and feel. Vegan, faux leather handles and trimming. Comes with matching mini zip purse that clasps to the inside of the bag. Spacious and chic.
I received this bag as a present and loved the time I spent using it! It was the perfect size and such a cute design! I used it every day to carry my school books, wallet, pencil pouch, and whatever else I would need with me! However one of the straps detached from the bag on one side. I tired to sew it back myself but it of course did not look as cute as it did before. I stopped carrying my books in it but soon, two more straps came off. I would still recommend this bag, just with a lighter load! Very cute print and perfect size for every day!

I got this bag in the turquoise shade and the color and design are nice and have a nice faded look. This would be a good bag for school because it is light but seems sturdy. My problem with it is the "leather" straps and piping around the bag. They make the bag look really really cheap. It would get 5 stars from me if they would have used a better material or even some type of cord instead of what they used. I did keep the bag but I do wish I would have returned it. I am thinking of trying to replace or do something with the straps so the do not look so generic.
Great style but the dye rubs off on everything!
Let me start by saying that I really love this bag. The blue colour is vibrant and the style is great. I did not buy this with the intention of making it my "every day purse", so when I finally carried it to work for the first time last week, I was surprised to find that the blue dye rubbed off on many contents inside the bag. I had a book in the bag and the edge of the pages were blue by the time I got to work. Same for two pieces of mail I needed to send, and a few other things. I've read through the reviews and didn't find any other instances of this happening, so I'm wondering what went wrong with mine. I never got it wet, nor was it raining when I carried it to work. Unfortunately I won't be using this bag as I don't want the blue dye to rub off on my clothing. Too bad.

For a relatively cheap tote (for FP), this bag seems to be good quality. Although I have not had it long (so can't account for durability) it feels sturdy and the material is fairly thick, I don't see it at any risk of tearing. There is no inside pocket for phones or small objects, which I guess is why the detachable purse was added. It is very handy for lipgloss etc but unfortunately will not fit a regular sized smart phone. Bonus that this bag is vegan! Thank you FP! I bought the "indigo" colour, however it appears almost identical to the pictures, I see it as more of a teal or turquoise, as indigo is typically slightly purple in colour or at least a darker blue. One thing I would suggest is not carrying heavy school books around in it, to improve the life of the tote, but also to save your shoulders and back, there's plenty of very cute backpacks out there guys!
Beautiful but dangerous
Love the pattern of this tote. But BE WARE. If your using this as your main purse... it wares out very quickly. I only used it for two months and the leather straps have started tearing off the tote. Also the bottom corners of the bag are developing holes which I've already lost a few belongings out of. I do not care heavy items it and definitely not sharp ones so this is a shocker. I never had this problem with anther bag... Definitely order at your own risk.

I received my tote (in the colour tea), a week or two ago and purchased it as a school bag. I'm a senior in my last semester of high school, and this bag is PERFECT for my needs! I use it everyday, and it fits my binder, water bottle, pencil case, hand cream, wallet, a bunch of snacks, and even my macbook laptop! My only wish is that this bag's handle was about a quarter inch longer, and that it had a zipper. Other than that, the design is awesome and unique, and this is an ideal tote bag for school! (if you are not taking very many classes with large textbooks ;)
