Write in the comments below, what was your take-away about coated canvas from this article!
"I got a large black hobo bag from coated canvas. The material is buttery soft and the metal hardware (zippers, rings, snaps) is strong not flimsy. The interior is simple and sufficient. Licorice is the perfect description for this black, and the plum topstitching is the right feminine touch. Very comfortable worn both ways. This is a great \"airplane\" purse: enough room for magazine, water bottle maybe a little snack and your essentials. Nothing topples out and it wipes clean. Worth every penny, I have been shopping around for high quality, unique bags for a long time and I look no further. I also have this style in the medium port wine color and it is just as awesome."
