I am paring down my belongings in order to begin my nomadic life - so anything I purchase needs a dual (at least) purpose and be of exceptional quality to hold up to life on the road. This bag is perfect as it will serve for shopping, storing items, and an attractive decorative item in the color-filled interior of my re-purposed ambulance. It is so well made - very sturdy - and I cannot get over the beauty of the colors! I was willing to spend a teeny bit more for both the quality and to support artisans - and this was still an exceptional purchase. I kept putting it in my cart and saving until I could afford it - and I am so glad that I did not settle for anything less than this bag -- it's perfect. Thank you, Common Goods, for carrying beautiful, well-made, purpose-filled items!
These are wonderful totes made from recycled saris. I love the size and practicality of the bag and I love the story of their creation. It's a bit heavier than my other totes, but it's much cooler than all of them.
