a strong well-made tote that can handle grocery shopping or computer carrying. Feels very collegiate or hippy in style but gives you a practice place to carry anything you might want to.

        Poorly made and lackluster

          Comments about UncommonGoods Upcycled Indonesian Batik Bag:

          I was very disappointed in this bag. The size is good and it's such a cool idea. I had two major complaints about this bag:
          1. Poor quality
          - there were stray threads everywhere caught up in the stitching. I pulled out/cut out most of them, but gave up after 20 minutes of string pulling. This was a gift and I shouldn't have to spend time making it recipient ready
          - at least two of the outside patches were worn and stained, and overall the bag honestly looked dirty.
          - the stitching was not straight or consistent, and looked flimsy. Some of it came apart when I pulled on the stray threads, and some unfinished edges were showing and will fray further
          2. Design
          - I understand the unique nature of this bag, but mine was so so disappointing, it looked like not even 2 minutes were spent selecting the patchwork. It looked sad and dirty. Funnily enough, the inside patchwork was so nice, I even tried turning it inside out, but due to the handle construction and closure, it can't really be worn inside out.

          I also agree with another person that it would be a good idea to be able to select at least the general color scheme.

          This item is in absolutely no shape to be given as a gift. I will be returning it, but now I am left scrambling without a gift for a special person and had to pay for the shipping cost.

          Delivery was prompt.

            Nice bag, good for commuting to work or running errands. I wish you could choose a family of colors like "blues" or "reds" and get a bag that contains those hues; I understand why not but it would be a nice option. The bag did have quite a few strings hanging that made me question the quality but the recipient loved it.

                I love this bag so much I had to buy another. I use it every day. It holds all of my necessities and has room enough for anything extra I might need to carry with me--small sketchbooks and notebooks, mini tablet, phone chargers, etc. Also, the fabric is so soft I often use it as a pillow.
