Broken clasp

I found this bag to be very useful. Unfortunately, the hook on the long strap broke, so now I just have the short handle to use. I've never had that happen before on a bag, so it was a surprise.

Great quality bag, and beautiful too!

I’m so glad I found this bag and trying to decide which one to try next! I went with Big Sur in order to be versatile but wow I just love all the colorful patterns too! I went through your website to find the perfect size to fit my small laptop and smallish-but-fat planner and the Commuter Tote simply couldn’t be better. It also fits a ton of standard size file folders, so I use it for work everyday and toss my phone, wallet and keys in the front pocket. It was a lot of straps to get used to so I took off the shoulder strap, and now the handles are starting to soften up so I’m hoping they will lie down so I can use the shoulder one more. I sew for a living and I can say the construction and materials are TOP-NOTCH! I love the website…the silhouette image showing the relative sizes is cool. I wish it showed, or there was a list of all the dimensions in one place but I’m just being a nerd. Would love to see all the fabrics in one place too but I know some things aren’t available all at once in all fabrics. Anyway LOVE this bag and highly recommend!

Love it, had ordered it for a business trip I was going on, but it didn’t arrive till after I had left, disappointed, but happy that it did come!
It’s very functional & well made, & it gets lots of compliments!
Thanks for your great designs❣️

Great Bag

Perfect size for commuting. Well made with leather handles to carry in your hand, and a shoulder strap for shoulder or cross body carrying. Good canvas quality and solid stitching. There’s room for a small laptop and/or notebooks, etc. Plenty of room in the open front pocket for keys, phone, whatever you need easy access to. Would definitely recommend this bag.

Perfect Bag for Me

I was looking for a bag to take to work that wasn't too big, looked good, and wasn't leather. I can get my laptop and lunch in if needed, but I usually do not need both. I like the outside bottle holder. This was a perfect combination of size, weight, and looks for most days. I liked this bag so much I plan to order the larger tote for those times when I need to carry more.
