This was an extremely cost effective solution for us, a nice natural fabric tote for under $2. Just what we wanted, very nice quality for the price. Roomy enough for books and papers, and great for shopping as well. The long straps are a perfect length to carry the bag by hand or over the shoulder. Everyone who has received one loves it and we are even selling them in our gift shop. I would recommend you get a sample, as the fabric is very nice, but light, and the natural color is very pleasing, not as white as it appears in the photo.
