What a beautiful bag!

"What a beautiful bag! big enough for all of my stuff, but sleek enough not to look bulky. Great detailing, as well. Many thanks!"

Mary from Brooklyn, NYC
Beautiful tote!

"The picture of this tote on the website grabbed me. When the tote arrived at my house, I could not believe how much more beautiful it was in person. The size and design of the tote is perfect, it is light, gorgeous, and can be casual or kind of dressed up. The colors are hip and classic at the same time. Soft, excellent craftsmanship, and fabulously vegan. Love it!"

Cathy P from Seattle
I love it!

"I have had this bag for about a year and I love it! It is the perfect size for every day use. Very durable and I have gotten many compliments. People cannot believe it is vegan. The bag in the picture has the same pattern of fabric in the pleats that mine has, so I like to think that is my bag :)"
