I saw this bag and immediately fell in love. I was in need of a good birthday gift for a mother that has everything, and only had a day to find something thoughtful yet functional. This bag is something that she probably wouldn't think to get herself, but seemed really happy to receive and looking forward to carrying, as a unique splash of color and fashion during a particularly cold and gray winter. She immediately commented that the colors were brilliant, and that the bag was well constructed, and a great size. The fabric patches had beautiful patterns and flowers with bursts of color, and the straps were a gorgeous vibrant green (which is incredibly lucky, since she looks great in that color)! My only regret is not splurging and getting one for myself -- such a worthwhile purchase. Added bonus: thought it would be belated, and it shipped/ arrived sooner than expected!

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.

            The bag was very wrinkled and limp when I opened the delivery. I think I will try to iron and starch it. The colors are dull too. I'm disappointed but will still try to use it, but I'd never give it as a gift.

            I love this bag & it's beautiful. I use it daily to carry all my things to work but after only two months of use it has started to rip in several places inside the bag. I'm disappointed because it's so beautiful and practical for all the things I need to take to work (I'm a preschool teacher so it's often a lot!) but I feel like for the price it should've held up better. I will try to mend it and hopefully it'll last a little longer.

                I love my bag! It was an u expected gift from my husband.

                That said, I'm sad that the patches began to tear and developed holes shortly after I received it.

                Due to the fragile nature of the upcycled material, this is t practical for everyday use.
