    Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Indonesian Batik Bag:

    I bought this as a gift for my wife but I pretty much stole it from her and have been using it every day for quite a while. I love it so much that I'm strongly considering buying another one because I've worn this one out! The straps are still in good shape (they're so strong and well-made!) but the constant rubbing of the fabric against my clothes has worn some patches a little thin. This is not a complaint, mind you. The bag has just been through the ringer with how much I use it!

      Cute look, but not durable

      Pros

      • cute
      • fair trade

      Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Indonesian Batik Bag:

      When this product arrived it was very cute (though there were several stray threads I had to trim.) It has been about a month since I received it and I have discovered a giant hole has already worn inside the pocket. I then found several missing items (including my name tag for work) had fallen into the lining of my purse. One of the best things about this bag is also one of its greatest weaknesses. The idea of a purse made from recycled materials is both a celebration of culture and a creative way to recycle. However, this means that some of the cloth is very worn and weak. I was very disappointed in this purse as the idea of it is great and I'm sure these pieces of cloth once held wonderful memories for many individuals. The fact that this bag only lasted a month saddens me. In the end, I would only recommend this purse for occasional use as it does not stand up to everyday wear and tear.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery was very prompt, but, as mentioned above, the product was covered in uncut/stray threads upon arrival.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Indonesian Batik Bag:

            This lightweight bag is very large. Too big for a purse but a small purse or wallet will fit nicely in it, plus a sweater for the office or snacks for the kids or towels for the pool. The colors are subtle and will go with anything.

            Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Indonesian Batik Bag:

            I was so excited when I found this bag! It's unique with the batik fabric and patterns, which is perfect for my sister who loves things like that. It's very large and spacious, but it's soft and easily foldable to make it very small, which I liked when I gave it to her. I'm happy I found this for my sister and she absolutely loves it. She said she'll use it to carry book at the library and carry extra clothes for church.

            My sister and I purchased this as a gift for our mother... neither of us wanted to give it to her once saw it, we wanted it for ourselves!! (So now I know what I'm getting my sister for Christmas!)
            It was well made, beautifully matched materials& colors, was roomy & spacious yet not "clunky" to carry around. It was Perfection!

            I bought two of these for high school graduation gifts. Both girls loved them. They said they were just what they needed for college next year.
            That's what I wanted a welcome gift instead of money!
